|This is fairly large and impressive cave with a reclining Buddha as its centrepiece. With only a stiff 10-minute climb from the Blue Lagoon, you’d be mad not to visit the both together. With a torch you can explore the second cavern which is just as large as the first, but that little bit creepier and more adventurous.|

|Solid sandals should be enough to explore this cave. The floor isn’t too slippery or wet, although it is quite uneven in places thanks to the water erosion.|
|It is possible to rent a flashlight here if you’ve forgotten yours. You can go about 50-100m inside Poukham Cave without one, though – although it would make things a lot easier if you did!|
|Make sure you pack your swimwear so that you can visit the Blue Lagoon at the same time. They’re both included in the same LAK10,000 ticket.|
|If you time your visit right, you could have a peaceful experience here. Otherwise, watch out for the large groups of Korean tourists that just love Vang Vieng.|
