Tip’s for tourists in Vang Vieng:

  • Do not walk around town at night time with your shirt off, it is not in keeping with Laos’s culture and the locals do not appreciate it.
  • Be careful where you smoke, the island in town is notorious for having undercover police. The bars at the top of the tubing river are also closely watched, so be sensible.
  • Do not even consider taking your passport/credit cards when tubing, many people have done so and lost them, it is a long painful process in getting a new one.
  • The tubing plastic wallets are not fully waterproof, if you are taking a camera/phone with you on the river make sure you buy real good quality waterproof wrap up bags.

  • It is illegal to work in Laos without a working visa, permit and ID card. Working temporarily for bars means fewer jobs for local people (there are many Lao’s who are unemployed), so if you are working for a bar, you are putting Lao people out of work. If you are caught working by the police you can also be charged 5,000,000 kip ($400).
