Add Nam Song River in your Laos tours – not for culture but for adventure
The small river flowing through Vang Vieng town is a popular destination to travelers when they take Laos tours. It is a stop place where you can take one or two days even more relaxing before discovering Luang Prabang. It is a difference in your Laos tours. The striking river landscape surrounded by karst will lure you. If you are looking for some places to see and learn more about Laos culture, Nam Song is not perfect one. It is suitable for your adventure journey to experience different things.
Nam Song river was an airfield and a base of Air America during the war in the last century. There is not much war evident left though. The river gradually flows through the town and the landscape is incredibly beautiful. You can take a inner tube to discover the place. Going around about 3 hours is enough to explore the towering cliff, enjoy the deep blue skies and lush green vegetation.
The most beautiful time of Nam Song river is at the sunset. It is one of the most unforgettable moment in your Laos tours. The sun disappears gradually behind the mountains. The town becomes quieter. The long karst silhouettes immense in the mystical air, fading from a platelet of greens to a dreamy watercolor grey.
One of the big change in Nam Song is many bars were closed. It was the response to some deaths of travelers in the past. Government want visitors coming here to join in some interesting activities such as kayaking, zip lining or climbing instead of partying from day to night. Of course, you will still find some good places to have fun with your friends.
