Karst Sunset take 2

Sunset on our last day in Vang Vieng. Moody or what? :)
One of the things that makes Vang Vieng a box to tick for the backpacker community is tubing. This involves being driven out of town and dumped in the river with an inner tube. You float down for a minute or so before you come to the first bar where you drink Lao whiskey and imbibe the drugs of your choice. You can play on rope swings or whatever then float down for another minute to the next bar and so on. This mixture results in a death rate of about one tourist every two months. Whilst we were there a young Canadian was killed when the rope he was swinging on broke. For more on health and safety click here
