The Hottest Men in Vang Vieng


When you’re the top party destination in Southeast Asia, you attract a lot of people. Specifically, young and very hot twenty-somethings.

After leaving Vang Vieng, I realized, with laughter, that most of my pictures were of me with various hot guys from around the world.

With no further ado…here are the hottest guys in Vang Vieng!

On my first day, I was floating in the river and screamed when I was hit with a flying plastic bottle.

It came from this hot Danish guy, and he hauled me into Jungle Bar.

He later told me that he asked the Lao guys if he could throw the bottle at me and bring me in.  Just me.

Some things about boys never change.  Couldn’t this have happened to all of us in middle school?

Colonol Vuvuzela, as my friend Chris and I called him, aka Hot South African Guy, was one of my favorites.  His nickname came from the instrument, which he brought to the river every day.

Not only was it a horn to announce his arrival wherever he went, it also served as a beer bong for everybody on the river.

Love how he kept his money.  Everyone should accept tips into their Muay Thai shorts!

Hot Aussie guy represented all that his country has to offer — hot guys who love to party, love their beer, and are incredibly adept at making fun of you.

Plus, he had a tongue ring.


…No idea how this guy got in here.

This hot Swedish guy had “Birthday Boy” written across his back.  I snuck up behind him, gave him a kiss on the cheek, and wished him a happy birthday.

“So, how old are you today?” I asked.

“I’m twenty.”


This dude was born in 1991!!!

What a cutie, though.

Now, THAT is how you rock a Speedo without irony!  It helps when your abs can cut glass.  YUM.

And just when it can’t possibly get better…twins*.  Hot Israeli twins. (And believe it or not, they chose the above pose, not me!)

They spoke just barely enough English to make everything they said sound hilarious – “Kate!  We can sleep like spoons!”

*Not really twins, but they might as well have been.

So if you really like attractive people, get yourself to Vang Vieng.  The hottness is overwhelming!

    Holy cow, this is one sexy post. I will enjoy Vang Vieng for sure. I think you found the mecca for hotties! 🙂

  2. Dude, it sounds like Vang Vieng is the present day San Francisco in the 70’s…everyone’s all free love and kissing each other and shit. Love it! Hot Danish Guy is my favorite. My husband and I lived in Denmark together, though unfortunately there were no trysts with hot Scandinavians of any kind for me, given that we were newly dating and living together and all =)

    Hey Kate!

    I love this post! Looks like quite the smorgasbord of hot men! Glad to see someone had a good time! 😉

    I will continue to live vicariously through your excellent posts! Glad that you are rockin’ the single life! 🙂 Keep the hot boys coming! 😀


    • Thanks, Jessica! It was most definitely a smorgasbord! Whatever your type was, it was represented! (Mostly white, though. There was one black guy there and my friend Chris called him Seal all night.)

  7. Michelle says:

    wow, what a hot post! must buy a ticket to van vieng right away!

    strangely, hot australian guy looks really similar to my Aussie ex-boyfriend!

    “Kate! We can sleep like spoons!”
    hahahahaha LOVE IT!

  9. Candice says:

    I am ALL OVER that dancing Speedo guy. DAMN.

  10. Amanda says:

    DAMN. This is one delicious-looking post! (With the exception of that guy on the table…).

    And I almost died at the “We can sleep like spoons!” line. Amazing.

  11. Hilarious round up, Kate! I’d have to say that the Aussie guy kind of scares me (the photo perhaps!), and I just can’t like a guy in a speedo no matter how much his abs rock. 😉

    Out of all of ’em I think I’d go with the Israeli twins because sweetness + hotness wins in my book! 😀

  12. Priyank says:

    LOL, I vote for the guy in speedo, if my vote counts. ^_^

  13. colinf says:

  14. Annie says:

    Such a great post! My favorite is the one standing on the beer pong table… KIDDING! hehe, way to go on the hotties!

  15. Rebecca says:

    O.M.G. That is all.

  16. Claire says:

    HOLY MOLY, I had no idea men “in real life” looked like this! GORGEOUS! No wonder you were getting so much attention, you look tan and beautiful yourself.

    Back to my suburban life with husband and child…
