Beautiful falls. A little ways out of town, but a beautiful drive. I recommend you get there early for it gets crowded. The water is refreshing on a hot day. I found behind some of the falls the rock is cut out and you can...More

Little bit further from Luang Prabang, but certainly worthwhile. Less crowded than Kuang Si, but great for people who want to see more. We went by motorbike, parked it, went by boat and went up for a climb. We walked further but the path up...More

We took a tour which included the elephant riding and a visit to the falls. Set in a rural area about an hour from the town the entrance has many small wooden shops and food stalls to browse. The falls are small but tranquil as...More

This waterfall is smaller than Kuang Si. They said it is dry from January till June.. Very beatifull and not as crowdy as Kuang Si. Large area to swim in. You can see elephants in the water. Not sure if they like it as much..

I think it's worth doing the falls both here and at Kuang Si. And if you're pressed for time and it's a good time of year to visit the falls, I might even pick this place over Kuang Si. Beautiful in a different way, and...More

The height of this waterfalls was not high but large, some part you can swim and relaxe as in the swimmingpool specially good is the sun shines on the falls and there is a large place you lied down for sun barth after the swimming.

We didn't know about this until a Korean guy we met in Vientiane told us about it the day before. We knew we had to see it. We booked a tuktuk for 190,000 kip from our guesthouse and we left at around 1:30 PM. There...More

I preferred the Tad Sae Waterfall to the Kuang Si Falls (although not as impressive) as the swimming pools were a lot nicer to swim in. We had a very enjoyable day here which included a little sunbathing and very tasty Laotian lunch in the...More

So beautiful and many less tourists if you hike along the river. Lots of great swimming spots! Elephant riding in the main area if you're into that. I would go here over kuang si if your time is limited.

Sad thing about Tad Sae is it's dry during hottest season like April or May. But still have some water runing down... you may feel a bit disappointed seeing a dry waterfall.
