My guide, Kong, met me right on time in Vientiane for this two day overnight tour to Vang Vieng and I was happy to discover I was the only participant! All along the way, Kong indicated points of interest up Road 13. The highlight for me on the first morning was the visit the 11th century Buddha carvings in the sandstone at Wang Xang where Kong was yet again informative and knowledgeable about the geography, the technique and the historical background of the carvings. Once we got to Vang Vieng, we took one of the long tail boats along the Nam Xong but the best part was the our walk through the newly harvested rice fields. Some of the most memorable scenic beauty I have ever encountered and Kong was a perfect companion with his delightful commentary. Hotel accommodation was quite adequate in VV...no complaints. Near the night market and some good restaurants. The next day's highlight for me was the lengthy visit we took to the nearby Hmong village of Pha Thao. Kong's talent as a guide lies in his ability to interact so knowledgeably and naturally with people he meets. I felt like a got lessons in history, art, agricultural practices, Lao sociology, Lao language, Buddhism and much more. With Mr. La at the wheel of our vehicle and Kong providing the commentary, this was possibly one of the more memorable guided trips I have taken. Well done to Kong and La!
