Vang Vieng in Laos
There is no doubt that Vang Vieng is a pipe house, but there are a lot of questions. where do you live? How it works? Can I do that if I am old?
This post from Tanya on her Can Travel Will Travel blog is a great introduction to Vang Vieng Pipes. In it, she answered all of the questions above and more, including – Is it just for children? I’ll let Tania tell you more.
“In the 1990s, Fang Feng in Laos was known as the party capital of fun in Southeast Asia … But after many pipe-related deaths due to drinking, illegal substances and dangerous behavior, the Lao government shut down the pipes.
It started again after a year or so but on a much smaller scale with strict regulations in place. I recently visited Vang Vieng, and even though I spent 10 to 15 years on most other travelers there, I decided to give the infamous tube a whirl, to see what it looks like these days. Did you feel old? Yeah! Are you still having fun? Yeah!”
