I have enjoyed trip to Vientiane, Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang. The itinerary was excellent. We loved both areas and would have liked to spend more time in each. The drive from Vientiane to Vang Vieng is extremely difficult, filled with twists and turns, and washed out road, but we enjoyed the scenery and glimpses of local life and would not have changed it. Accommodations and meals were excellent, as were all tours and activities included. We did add an elephant ride and feeding the monks which I would strongly recommend.
