This is one of the most memorable moments while in Vang Vieng last December. Blue Lagoon is about 7km from Vang Vieng town.
I got a local guide to show me the way because there seemed to be some confusion about which is the real blue lagoon (with the wrong signage pointing to another).
On the way to the blue lagoon, my guide showed me a village (you get to see the local kids waving at you and bathing in the river). I gave them colour pencils and pens). They were simply thrilled !
There is a steep trek up to Tham Phu Kham Cave. And when you are lucky, my guide told me I could spot a golden crab (that's how the cave got its name ~ golden crab)
If you're looking for a local guide to bring you to those places with less tourists, he has a blog. Please check this
