Should Vang Vieng, Laos be On Our Itinerary?

Last December, the husband and I were finally able to booked our ticket to an Asia travel. Yahooo! We were thinking about it for some time now but got bumped with other priorities. After getting hitched last year, we got tangled into many things. We totally forgot the honeymoon. And yes, this is definitely not a honeymoon. Our trip to Hong Kong and Macau will be – this coming March. 🙂

This travel will be a realization of a dream and our first escapade longer than 5 nights. We were quite excited especially me. In my excitement, I hurriedly outline our itinerary. A recent post in Bright Side inspired me to include Vang Vieng in our target destination. Our itinerary sans Vang Vieng is already crazy – with A LOT of bus rides. With Vang Vieng, it’s foolishness.

But it seems so reachable. We are going there so might as well make the most of it. I’m pretty anal when it comes to planning. Day by day, I try to read something about our destination. It was then that I stumbled unto the bad history of Vang Vieng, written in 2012, almost 4 years ago. Reading it makes me hesitant to include it on our list even if there are posts that says that it’s pretty safe there now. Hmmm!

How about you? Are you planning to travel to Laos? Will you include Vang Vieng in your list? Need advise.
