Vang Vieng is not exactly famous for it’s healthy living culture. The place where you sit in a rubber ring, drink all afternoon and then party all night, with free drinks, every day. That said, sometimes the best cure for a hangover is to get moving and sweat it out. Not to mention if you are a gym bod, you don’t like to get out of the routine – I know I don’t!
Unfortunately, there is not a gym in Vang Vieng at the time of writing (and I doubt anybody will build one any time soon).
I did some research online and a couple of message boards said that there was a gym in Vang Vieng at the Vansana hotel, overlooking the river. I went to check it out, and I suppose there was technically a gym there, but it consisted only of one treadmill and one exercise bike. Nothing else. Not exactly what I would call a gym myself.
I wanted to write this post in the hope that you find this information and don’t waste your time going to look for the hotel gym. You will be pleased to know, when you move on there are gyms in both Luang Prabang and Vientiane so you can get back to training as soon as you escape the party!
Information correct on 09/03/15. Please be aware that this may change over time. If something does change please leave a comment and I will update the article.
