Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon trip here from Vang Vieng. it take about 45-50 mins by taxi but is well worth it. The lagoon is so cool and clean, lovely and deep too so you can dive in from the overhanging trees.
The caves above are a tough but short hike up a very steep hill. Once inside they are quite vast. What amazed us was that there is absolutely nobody inside to tell you when to stop and turn around, i.e. we didn't know whether you were supposed to keep going and come out at a different entrance or turn back. if we had kept going we would probably be still in there now so be careful! No signs, no guides!
Still, great day out!

Great place to go and retreat to on a hot day. Try to time it well though, as it can sometimes be fairly crowded when I went on separate occasions.

In rainy season they should call it the Green Lagoon, but the water is still clean and refreshing. Their are some swings, and you can jump out of the tree. Water depth is 3-4 m, so it's quite safe. The cave is quite big and has some nice stalactites. Entrance 10.000 KIP, Torch rental 10.000 KIP, you can by the torch in Vang Vieng for only 35.000 KIP...

So...Vang Vieng is pretty much a party spot, Tham Phu Kham cave is not. It's a nice spot away from the adventure town that is Vang Vieng. We kayaked there for quite a bit, and my muscles were a bit sore when we got to the cave's entrance. Climbing through the crevices of the cave was awkward and that made it all the more interesting. We used a local tour company for this trip, and they provided flash lights along with the kayaks. Vey cool spot to explore. So worth it.
