This is one of the best examples of why the americans were defeated in the fight against Communism. The caves were a refuge to thousands during the horrific 9 year bombing campaign in the US secret war against the Pathet Lao and communism in general. The brilliant audioguide is very clear in its facts and it was a very sobering experience. We are very glad we made the 2 day journey over to Vieng Xai as it was well worth it. We really enjoyed staying in Vieng Xai rather than Sam Neua as it is a lovely town in a beautiful setting. The locals aren't so used to westerners so seemed friendlier than anywhere else we have been in Laos. Nashi 2 is rather run down but OK for an overnight stay. We ate breakfast and lunch at a nice family restaurant nearly opposite Nashi 1.We think it was called Sawfen.
