The waterfall was beautiful, pristine turquoise pools and fewer tourists than I imagined - would recommend visiting in the morning. Worth climbing up to the top for an excellent view, and the bear sanctuary is not to be missed

If you are the first to arrive to the falls you will enjoy an incredible experience. The falls are great. Don't forget the swimming clothes!

I didn't think this place could live up to its reputation, be I was sure wrong! The falls were absolutely breathtaking... best I've seen in south east Asia! A must see in Laos.

Get there early so you can beat most crowds that arrive around 11. Try not to take the hotel buses or you will be stuck there most of the day which is way too long. The attached bear rescue sanctuary is amazing and the bears are so fluffy.

It is the most beautiful waterfalls ever seen, clean, easy to swim, and just gorgeous! Easy one hour trip. We were there in wet season, and lots of people! But still easy to Swim! P.s the bear enclosure was a delight!

The place is rather photogenic, but above that, it's something else and not that overrated. Kuang Si Falls is included in my booked tour, in which I have 2-3 hours to spend here. Don't make the same mistake. Hire a private tuk-tuk at around USD20 or less, and spend the entire day here - meditate, hanging around or whatever.
