The amazing road from Luang Prabang to Vang Vieng

Vang Vieng is a small town along the the Nam song river, that is reached from Luang Prabang by a scenic mountain road that turns and turn for 6 or 7 hours. It's a difficult journey if not done in the right conditions, but as someone said in one of my favorite travel forums: it's a journey one must do once in his or her life. Rather than the regular VIP bus, that does not stop when you have motion sickness, we decided to hire a mini-van with a driver. It was well worth the extra money. We stopped many times along the way, saw a lot of fascinating Hmong villages, and at the end of the day, we reached Vang Vieng, which was welcoming us with a nice swimming pool overlooking the Nam Song, and a beautiful sunset.
