About Myself ..


Hi, I am Chansay Nanthavong,  a 26 year old Laotian. I have been a tour guide since 2008.
I'm passionate about my job because I love meeting people and sharing my culture and customs.

I grow up in Vang Vieng and loving it. Vang Vieng is surrounded by unexplored tunnels and caverns, and the dramatic limestone cliffs.  Activities that you may enjoy are kayaking, water rafting, trekking, caving, river tubing, biking and more !

Besides, I also do city tour to Vientiane and Luang Prabang.  

We can customize our tour to include any of the places you wish to visit and private transport can be arranged.

I will pick you up from Vientiane Airport (Wattay). 

Just give me a call or send me a message link to my Facebook

In a typical Lao style, I would like to say this to you, "Sabaidee my friend, Come! Come!"

Adventurous Biking Trip

Exploring Vang Vieng and see my hometown in a different light ! Cycling is an awesome way to explore a place less traveled where its charm and natural beauty are retained.

Cycling across the rickety bamboo bridge, anyone?

Round the paddy field
Going into the village to meet the locals
A tour that suits all ages
Cycling to Phou Kham Cave
Cycling to the Blue Lagoon




A Trek to the Waterfall

We can cycle and stop by the Khmu Village before trekking up to the waterfall. Locals describe the  mist that comes from high up the waterfall as "flowers rising". 
I will prepare a simple Laos cuisine for you by Laos style (we sharpen bamboo pole and use it to grill fish !) Meal is also accompanied by a toast of local rice wine (called lao-lao)
I will share with you how the locals live off the jungle by using the edible plants for food and medicine. Enjoy!
