Tubing in Vang Vieng

Tubing is a big 'thing to do' while visiting Vang Vieng - especially among the young backpack travelers passing through for several days. I was torn at first - a slightly older solo female backpacker tubing down the famous party river - but I am glad I made the decision to spend the better part of my day grabbing a tube and hitting the water. 

Once I made the decision to tube I headed to the tubing operator in town where they quickly signed me in, took a deposit, and shuttled me onto an open air truck with 10 other tubers. We headed down the main road and pulled into the drop off point (about 5 kms) outside of town where we jumped into our tubes and began floating.

Less than 5 minutes passed and we were being called over to the first bar - ropes thrown in and promises of free drinks and fun times. What the heck - I grabbed the rope + a beer and laid out in the sun to experience my first bar on the river. I quickly made a few friends and we were off to float along and continue the fun for the day!
