After a VERY long journey (8h from Lijiang to Kunming, 29h from Kuning to Luang Prabang, 5h from Luang Prabang to here), we have arrived in Vang Vieng, Laos, tubing capital of the world.
tub·ing /[too-bing, tyoo-]-noun
Also called inner-tubing. the sport or recreation of floating down a river or stream on an inner tube.
So there you have it. As can be expected, I am reluctant to sit on a chair for too long at the moment (please see first sentence of this blog!) so you will have to wait a while for photos and more info.
