We walked up the rocky steep steps to the cave which didn’t take our young family too long. The cave was immense with high ‘ceiling’ and Buddha in the centre. Lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Wear sturdy sandles or trainers, and bring a...More

Entrance ticket 10,000 Kip. We followed the google map on the phone to visit a blue lagoon not far from downtown Vang Vieng. Easy to ride a scooter. Nice mountain view on the way. There were many bumpy car rental places along the street and...More

About the only thing worthwhile here is the scenery, giant granite spheres up in the sky...otherwise an overpriced tourist locale with a little water and cave!

I think there are better caves and lagoons in Vang Vieng to visit. This place is quite overcrowded and for us it was nothing special.

The best thing I liked about Blue Lagoon was people watching. It was quite busy when we arrived and it appeared that there were as many locals as tourists there. The shades of blue that give the Lagoon are just beautiful. It is so clear...More

Yes it's very touristy but the same can say about everywhere in Vangvieng. The water was blue, quite clean, you can actually see many fish here. Jumping from tree was fun, nothing to complain.

Lagoon is super touristy and as a result has become over commercialized... don't spend your time here when there are several other, less populated ones. That being said it is a nice spot to cool off in if you're in the area. The cave wasn't...More

This is quite close to town and is nearly always very busy. Would be much better if it was quieter, but there are many restaurants and food shops here. Walk up to the cave is worthwhile, but a little precarious at times for us older...More

Not a bad place to go swimming. There's a few platforms to jump off of and a rope. Did the short hike up to the first cave but didn't go farther. It wasn't too crowded when we went.

We've cycled it in about 20-25minute I think. It's a pretty quick ride but we have our own touring bikes. I guess it depends on the rental if that's what you're using! It's a fun ride, worth it!
