“Awesome Caves with Okayish lagoon”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Firstly, the blue lagoon isnt blue anymore, yet still not dirty. The lagoon is a nice place to sit and chill with some nice view of the hills and open fields. If you wish to swim then u can enjoy here as the lagoon is big enough for some fun.

On the other side, the cave is brilllliannt if you seeking some adventure. The cave here is scary and do not enter without a light. The cave has some narrow passes and scary dark cave drops, so not a place for weak hearted. We were 9 to enter the cave but only 1 went to the end, as most people got freaked at some point of time. We got a local kid as a guide to take us in and show the possible passages, but I repeat do not enter without lights as it gets scary and tricky after a point.

“Fun place to spend a day!”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

The place is quite scenic and it s worth a visit. It gets crowded with young backpackers so if it s not your demographic you may wanna go earlier...

“Adventure,Nature,history and exercise”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

This is short trip but I got a combination of Adventure ,Nature and climbing. It is not too hard to going up but you should be very careful ,because the stairs are not reliable at all and if needs to stop climbing for a while to take a new breath there is not enough space for your fallower to pass.

“Amazing”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

We hired bikes for the day and went to see other caves before blue lagoon. Blue lagoon was by far the best with amazing swimming and a great atmosphere. Road is hard work on bikes with the bumps and the food out there was a bit average so would recommend taking your own

“A swim on 31 dec!”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Nice place to swim after a day of cycling. Water is incredibly blue and warm. There are few stalls where you can buy a beerlao and some snacks. There are kind of pergolas and bamboo mats, so you can lay down, eat, drink and relax.
For the caves take your frontal lamps if you have, if not you will need to rent one for 10 000kip.
