We went late afternoon, and had a fun couple of hours, before being chased off the river ! We hired the tubes in town, and took a tuk tuk to the start point. We'd had a cycle earlier in the day, so this was a fun end to the day. It wasn't very busy the day we did it - your mileage may vary !

The tubing will be what you want it to be. Let me explain you why: everybody normally goes at 12:00, so, if what you want is to party and meet a lot of people, that's your hour. We went at 11:00 so we literally had the river for ourselves.

Thoroughly enjoyed my experience tubing in Vang Vieng. The views are absolutely stunning and it's so relaxing just floating along slowly while you take it all in. Only stopped at one bar, they're all right at the beginning and just wanted to get going and enjoy it but if you want to drink you gotta stop off straight away. Can get a bit rocky in places so mind your bum but it just adds to the adventure! Worth doing for sure.

We are both around 60, we did the whole trip. No danger, very relaxing. It took us 3 hours to finish the trip without stop. Sometimes the river undeep and almost no current. We left at 2.30 pm at the end it become cold when the sun went down. Good and friendly service. Book at the company not at an agency. It’s cheaper!

Had been "TUBING" in a group tour through "Nana Backpackers Hostel" in Vang Vieng.We were driven in a large tuktuk to the start point of the "Tubing" adventure on the nam Song river.. At 1230 hrs .each tourist was given a inflated tractor tyre tube and launched themselves into the river. After floating on the tube from our start point on the river we gradually drifted downstream and arrived at our first "BAR cum DANCE " floating barge.It was a orgy of music, drinks and dance before proceeding on our respective "TUBES" to the next entertainment station.There were a total of 3 stations with the 3rd station being the last stop of the entire afternoon's tubing on the Nam Song river. Something totally different akin to being shipwrecked and drifting on a life-raft on the water.Try "TUBING" once in your lifetime.TUBING" is what transformed a once ordinary village of Vang Vieng in Laos into a tourist hot-spot in the country
