Volunteer Group from KOREA

I work alongside Volunteer Group coming into Laos for cultural exchange.

I was a translator and guide to the Korean Volunteer Corp during their time in Laos. After volunteering in Laos Youth Center, I brought my group to Vang Vieng to reward themselves for their hard work.

We had a great time..!

About Myself ..

Sabaidee, I'm Chansay Nanthavong,  a 27 year old Laotian. I have been a tour guide since 2008. I started as an outdoor tour guide in Vang Vieng.

To improve my life condition, I went to further my studies in Tourism & Business school and with the kind support of my customers, I started my own tour company - TC Travel in 2014.

I'm passionate about my job because I love meeting people and sharing my culture and customs.

Let me introduce you to my hometown ~ Vang Vieng.
Being  surrounded by unexplored tunnels and caverns and the dramatic limestone cliffs, it's a beautiful place. Customers told me it looks like GuiLin, China  

Try to explore this place with its many outdoor activities - kayaking, water rafting, trekking, caving, river tubing, biking and more !

It's a good experience for all.

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

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

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

Introducing Vang Vieng

Vang Vieng is a riverside town in Central Laos on Highway #13 between Vientiane and Luang Prabang 
- by bus about 6-8 hrs from Luang Prabang, around 3-4 hr from Vientiane.


Row of limestone karst mountains across the river provides a stunning backdrop and is the setting for some impressive caves.

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!
