Drag yourself by a rope while floating in a tube and exploring Tham Nam (Water cave). The 500 m (1,640 ft) long ride winds through dark corners and pristine refreshing waters, with only the light of your headlamp illuminating the narrow passages. Although the conditions are completely safe and the fixed ropes ensure you don’t wander off, you can hire a guide to assist you and give you some background information about the cave. Finish your adventure with a meal in the nearby restaurant. Keep in mind that the tube floating experience is possible only during the wet season, while in the dry season visitors explore the cave by foot.

Decent attraction for 10.000 Kip. Going into the cave on the tube is fun, but needless since it's not deep and you can walk on the water. The headlights they give you are very bad, so you'll want to go as a group of at least 3 people to get enough light. Actually I consider bigger groups even a plus in this cave and I enjoyed having s Chinese group there the first time in my life. I didn't go very deep so I can't say how far it actually is.
It's a pretty fun experience going tubing in a cave. Down side to this place is that it's overcrowded with big tour groups, and it might take very long to just wait for your turn to go in.
