Welcome to Vieng Thong
The original name of Vieng Thong (ວຽງທອງ) was Muang Hiam, a Tai Daeng word meaning 'Watch Out' and this name still appears on most road markers. Back when tigers roamed the surrounding forests it was relevant, but these days only a handful may survive in the enormous Nam Et/Phou Louey National Park, on whose vast doorstep Vieng Thong sits. While the town is highly forgettable, the park is not and should be visited through the Nam Et/Phou Louey National Park office at Vieng Thong Visitor's Center.
