    Nam nueng hydro dam holiday

    A few weeks back my bro and his missus came for a visit and not really knowing what to do with the fucker we decided a trip to vang vieng would be nice with a stop over on the nam nueng lake ( also called the Lao sea) coz its fuckin big innit.




    I wont post much about vang vieng because not much had really changed since my last visit, But this time we did make the effort to see a nice waterfall



    This is the first hydro dam built in Lao and supplys vientianes power needs, villagers were " cough" relocated and the entire valley flooded using the natural contours and topography. Some locals chose to remain on land that hadnt submerged



    we stayed in the long nguem lake view resort which has a fantastic view from the infinity pool on the hill, this is pretty much the only resort here, but there ar small guest houses further away

    I had booked this bungalow because we stayed in it a few years back, little did i know that they had built some nice new gaffs which would of been better

    This place is only about 50 klicks out of vientiane so is popular with Lao folk on the weekends, not much to do but you can hire a boat and chugg around for a few hours drinking beer


    we chartered this one and no sooner had we cast of when it promptly broke down

    Skipper sompon made a quick foray in to the bowls of our vessel and quickly ascertained the problem



    A rescue and replacement vesel was quickly despatched and with ice and beer transferred we were on our way again

    The replacement vessel



    The view of the resort

    On the Lake are 2 jail islands that are reserved for prisoners, a male only island and a female only island, you can go close but arent allowed to land, They dont want the girly prisoners getting Luigi,d im guessing

    This dam must of been a massive project back in the day,but is quite small compared to xayaboury pretty sure that in the future there will be more tourism development around these hydro projects

    Wasnt enough reason to linger another night here so it was of to vang vieng, been many timess but as it was the wet seaon i was keen to see the local waterfall in wet season

    You can drive your car to the base of the falls then walk 400m up the hill to see it



    we were there on the weekend so it was getting quite busy with locals having snacks in the huts

    As i mentioned before not a lot had changed in vangvieng, its still quite a sedate place



    These days its more popular with Korean and chinese tourists, who tend to go for the whole eco tourism thing,

    , Bit of a hidden gem. Cheers Laoski. It's on the list. The mental list. The list of things and places I'd like to do and see but will probably never happen. He says, as the rain beats steadily on the bedroom window of his suburban terrace.

    That kind of moobage can only be applauded. Just imagine the amount of FourX it took to yield such impressive mounds of flesh.

    Still a bit of construction going on to cater to the growing demand of koreans who are more than happy to shell out for a decent fartsack



    should be nice when finished

    but seems not everyones happy. Or perhaps local sompon is stilll realing after catching sight of the moob bro,s in the hotel pool guuzzling beer and frollicking. Poor bastard. never mind, fuk him ! he will get over it in time

    The Laotian tourist authority's slogan needs a little tweaking.

    Jest as you may, but I'd hazard the initial lure for young Luigi wasn't the French colonial architecture, but rather the purt, nubile and financially viable flesh on offer. That and the baguettes of course.

    it certainly does, and in this case not far from the city for something different, you can travel the length of that lake on the boat that we chartered and end up at dan savanh resort resort complete with world class golf course and casino but it takes 4 hours , soon i think someone will come up with speed boat service making it about an hour. punters will love it especially the chinese and thais koreans etc. all good as long as someones making a buck
