Tubing in Vang Vieng, Laos is one of the most popular tourist activities in this Far Eastern holiday destination. This consists of hiring an enormous tyre inner tube, being driven a couple of km upstream and hopping into the water. The river flows at a slow steady pace, and the idea is to relax and absorb the scenery as you float home.

There are many bars (with free shots of lao-lao whiskey to lure in the punters and offering light snacks) and activities along this fantastic journey through the karst Limestone Mountains lining the route including rope swings, slides, music and caves that you can float through.
