I chose to cycle out from Vang Vieng. Its a 15-20km-ish ride, staring on sealed road for the first 7km or so then dirt track which gradually deteriorates the closer you get. Whilst a little testing on the backside, the poor road conditions make for a pretty quiet thoroughfare with stunning views on all sides. Unfortunately the destination itself didn't live up to the reviews I'd read... Arriving at around 12:30 the entire site was already in full shade from the adjacent peak and to be honest, didn't entice enough (viewed from the bike parking lot) to even bother to pay the entrance fee... The smallish, uniform pool with a few swings and a zip wire held little allure when in shadow. I decided instead to press on to Blue Lagoon 2, which in my opinion was much nicer in every way: several pools, great views around, in sunlight but with shade cover if desired, food options and generally more ambiance.

We took a buggy and toured the countryside to get there. Not the best of tracks, but worth the experience. Cheap entry fee, for the facility. It’s a fun spot. It was uncrowded and a pleasurable way to spend a couple of hours.

A good hours drive out of the city. Would reccomend going by buggy as we tried on moped and it was very uncomfortable. Buggy was so much fun and worth the money though!! (Be prepared to get covered in dust though). Very relaxing and calm in comparison to other Lagoons. Theres a swing rope, small zip line, lots of rings and an inflatable raft. Spent about an hour here and loved it. It is in the shade as it's right by a massive hill though.

... would love to be discreet about this place but if someone can have a better time like us then why not :-)
This lagoon is way less crowded and much more beautiful than blue lagoon 1. Group tours and tuk tuk etc are not mentioning or taking people here because its an hour away/8 kms by bike from Blue Lagoon 1 (which I find too crowded and commercial). They have zip line , bamboo boats, tubes. They charge a nominal fee on 10000 kip, there is a bar which serves drinks and food - they also had a fire place when we went there in Feb. Life jacket is provided on request.
Note:-
- This is not a paved road hence 8 kms may take 30 minutes to an hour.
- Very scenic route and you can also catch a glimpse of sun set whilst returning.
- You get to see local life away from Vang Vieng center.
- There is also cave close to this lagoon (I forget the name).
- They have toilet and changing rooms.
- carry flip flops (if you are wearing shoes) because the stones there might hurt.
- not suitable for people with back problem or who have issues with biking on unpaved track.

How to get there? someone has written a blog if you google Blue Lagoon 3 and it is quite descriptive and well composed.

The first thing that came up into my mind that it's not a lagoon but just a pond. Entrance fee to each lagoon is 10k kip. The way to get there is quite adventure especially during the rainy season, it can be very challenging.
You can rent a bicycle for 20k kip, scooter 50k kip, and the most convenient is ATV, here they called it buggy +/- 350kip for few hours.
Walking is doable, just it's gonna be long journey and I don't think it worth enough to visit by walking that far, just my two cents.
Blue lagoon 3 is the best among others, followed by lagoon 1

Went out to this spot by buggy. Went early to beat the convoys of buggies heading out for the day. We were able to enjoy the beauty of the place and crystal clear water before the hoards arrived.

lovely blue waters of the lagoon, at the foot of the rise to the caves. Very cold waters of the lagoon did not deter many revellers from jumping in from various levels or heights

Not sure if it’s worth the 40 odd minutes to drive here from town. I was sold on it being more beautiful and less busy but it was still quite crowded and rather murky. There is a restaurant which serves reasonably priced food
