Blue Lagoon 1
Hurling yourself into this little turquoise lake – set in green forest just outside town – has long been a Vang Vieng ritual for travellers. There are numerous ways to do it – from the shore of the lake itself, from platforms in the trees, from a waterslide or a rope swing. What do you do afterwards? Not much; laze in the sun with scores of other backpackers, soak in the water; or for something a little more exhilarating, zip line through the trees.
