One of the main reasons to come here is to do exactly this.

It sounds crazy but you will have a great time. For 4.50 dollars you get your tyre and are dropped off at the start of the course. I think that it is about 3km long. You get to see amazing scenery and there are about 10 bars along the way. They are more than happy to get you in to have a drink, by throwing ropes/sticks out to you. Many of the bars also have jumps and swings for you to throw yourself into the river.

Please don't drink too uch or take any drugs. You need to keep your wits about you. If you feel unwell for any reason, speak to someone who works at one of the bars and they will arrange to get you back by other methods.

You can hire a wet bag to keep your money in etc for an extra dollar. I recommended that you do this.

Address: Vang Vieng
Directions: Either ask at where you are staying or there are plenty of places in town that can arrange this for you.
