What a great place to be and a fantastic place to meet loads of people! You hire a tube and take a tuk tuk up town further down the river then make your way from bar to bar in the tube! How easy! No Lifegaurds! Health and Safety regulations or anything. LOL. The first bar had  a giant swing where you can climb into the trees and then jump and if your lucky not fall flat on your face and embaress youreself infront of everyone watching! (I was too scared to try this!) Once downing a bucket or 2, for my non-travelling friends, a sandcastle bucket filled normally 3/4's vodka/whisky then the rest of coke! with 3/4 straws! Only 50,000 Kip, which i think is about 4 pounds, not sure. You can carry on along to the next bar, which is a stones throw away but you tube it anyway! Just for fun! Starting at lunchtime, we finnished around 7ish! After spending all that time in bars and especially in the Mud Bar! Where everyone just gets covered.

Even if your carrying a camera, they will cover you apart from the arm thats holding it! If your holding a bucket, everyone stays away, afterall, no-one wants to waste good alcohol! lol. I got loads of photos which turned out amazing. Defiantly not flattering though when you are sooo drunk! lol.  I'll upload these as soon as i get somewhere that will let me!

Met some great people along the way! American Tammy, Jessy and Joey from Holland! And Ore, from Israle! So great that we continued to travel together for a while after the tubeing and ended up spending most of our time all together. Between Rob, Jessy and Joey, they entertained us all with their repitoaries of different songs from different eras! Very funny!
