Smile Bar Vang Vieng Reviews
Smile! Mar 22, 2008
If you're going to Vang Vieng, chances are you're going tubing. Smile Bar is the place to go to continue the fun after the sun goes down and you've returned your tube. The DJ at this bar is the same DJ at one of the main bars people stop at along the river. The crowd was also the pretty much the same.
Smile Bar is located on the "The Island" across a wobbly bridge. At the center of this bar is a large fire place surrounded by benches and cabanas. There is no cover charge, but if I remember correctly, drinks were on the pricey side (for Laos) so I think it's cheaper to get buckets and share with a friend. Or don't share ;)
This place shut down at 12am which is the closing time for bars in Laos (when the curfew is enforced) but a few of us were stayed beyond midnight just chatting and hanging out. Overall, very good times and I wish it could have gone on longer!
