This is hands down the best thing I have ever done. I have made so many friends on this river that I’m still in contact with. Admittedly allot of the bars have been closed down but the good ones are still up and running. A...More

I went tubing yesterday and had a truly excellent experience! What better way to spend 2 and a half hours than lazily float down a river! Not bad for £6!

Definitely worth the experience tubing along the river and hopping on and off the bars by the river. It's a slow journey and probably 4 hours is all you need to complete the tubing journey.

The tubing activity is quite slow and not really excited in fact nobody really care about it and people go there just to drink. Please note if you do it in the afternoon the sun will be behind the mountain so you could be cold...More

Highly recommend going tubing with the Red Tube Company. Very fun staff who will learn your names and keep you safe. You can go your own speed. It's not the crazy party scene it once was. Several couples in their 40s joined as well because...More

Went in January and for stunning scenery / magic of floating down the river with virtually no-one else on it I'd recommend it as one of the best things we did in Laos. It IS very quiet and nothing at all like the party scene... More
