Getting Off the Beaten Track
It’s an opportunity to get off the beaten track of the tourist beaches and air-conditioned restaurants, that so many seem to hardly move beyond, and get to some of the more remote, and interesting, locations of this varied and diverse landscape. And the fact is getting off the beaten track isn’t all that difficult, if you’ve got access to the right information and plan things correctly.
I've written dozens of PDF travel guides for many destinations in South East Asia. They contain lots of info to enable you to plan your trip including direct links to google maps, travel and accommodation, activities, videos, car rentals and more.

On the edge of HIN NAM NO National park, and tucked up against the border of Vietnam, sits the largest cave in Laos. In fact, the XE BANGFAI is currently considered to be the world’s largest river cave. Watch the attached video to get a full video to get a full appreciation of this fantastic sightseeing experience.
The Bomb Boats are an interesting attraction, worth a few minutes of your time, located on the Namkading River, next to Ta Bak Village. Pull over at the western end of the bridge and, below on the river, you’ll see the BOMB BOATS. According to informed sources these boats are actually constructed from auxiliary fuel tanks, from US Air-force planes, which were dropped after the fuel was used. They fuel tanks are much longer than the cluster bomb casings that are often seen in this area of Laos.
The SECRET VILLAGE, and THAM HUEP CAVE, are hidden gems which most loopers miss but need not, because the locations are clearly indicated on Google maps. There’s a couple of remote villages on the far side of a 300 meter high karst peak, and the only way of getting there is going through a one km long river cave. Be sure to watch the attached video to get a full appreciation of this adventure tour.
