I'll be in LAOS at the beginning of July travelling by land from Hanoi to Vientiane. I was thinking of going to Luang Prabang and Vieng Vang where they do the rock climbing and tubing.
Does anyone know any cheap tours that depart from Vientiane and go up to these locations in Laos for about 4 or 5 days? I am travelling solo so didn't really want to do it alone, but it's a possibility.
I checked out intrepid travel but they were quite pricey.
I am travelling to Loas in October, a good website for short tours is http://www.laosonline.com.au
Hope this helps
surely going alone would be your best and cheapest option? ur guaranteed to meet people even on the bus to vang vieng....there are so many other travellers there you couldn't help but meet people in either of those towns! loads of people go that same route...have you asked around the hostel to see if anyone else is thinking of going the same time?
The places you are planning to visit are very well- trodden and there are plenty of buses travelling that route, so I think you would be fine on your own. As the previous poster says, if you really don't want to go it alone you shouldn't have a problem meeting other travellers to hook up with.
