People say you are not quite the traveller when you are in Vang Vieng and NEVER do Tubing. Guess what? I didn't. Oh believe me when I say I went to sleep every night dreaming about going tubing. But it just never happened, because... when I got there I realized it's not my thing. So, NOTE: The rest of this entry will be from the mind of an utterly boring, solo 25 year old. All proceedings is entirely up to you, and I am not liable for any chronic yawning syndrome.

I started the day quite early. Woke up at 6.30 am and it was already bright! Something new! Had breakfast at 8.10 am (Food only came like 20 min later -__-") I took my own sweet time consuming the oily omelette and baguette combo. Little did I know that that extra 10 minutes cost 100,000 kip of "kena ketok" yet again later.

I strolled along the street on a peaceful Sunday morning looking for the right tubing vendor. They told me to come back at noon - "More people more fun." Okay. Walked further up the street and I completely changed my mind - Let's go kayaking instead! But a 10-pax "group" left like a tad 10 minutes earlier. I can still join them and pay group price (125,000 kip for whole day kayaking & caving) but I had to pay 100,000 kip more for a personal transport to the starting point. US$27 for activities was expensive ok. :(

The rest of the day passed by very pleasantly. We got into a cave on tubes, kayaking down Nam Song river for 3 hours, and a stop at a bar where I threw myself into the river. :P Now I'm not going to talk a lot. Let the photos do the narrating. :)
