Perfect break from the heat. Tons of activity collocated for an hour, half or full day although we just did an hour after lunch. Zip line, cave, elephant riding, swimming, falls & wading. Clean water but can be dangerous if you're not careful. It's fast...More

I went there in January so the water level was low and it was cold so no one would dare swim. I think getting there is nicer than the falls itself. While at the falls, I got an elephant ride and boy that was fun....More

Definitely recommend a visit to the falls. Very picturesque and the swimming pools were clean and refreshingly cool. The only blemish was the elephant rides on offer-saddened to see these beautiful creatures being used in such a way.

Wow! A great place and not at all hard to get to if you rent a motorbike or take a taxi. There are a number of fees to pay on your way in (parking, boat, entry) but the falls are so worth it. I recommend...More

I biked to the waterfall with a guide. It took me about 2 hours each way. The road is very smooth and you see beautiful countryside of Laos. To get to the waterfall you need to take a short boat ride across Nam Khan River....More

Smaller waterfall compare to Kuang Si falls. But still a beautiful one. We saw elephant bathing in the waterfalls. We need to take a short boat ride to reach this place, about 5 minutes, without wearing any life jacket.

The waterfall was spectacular after crossing the river I a long tail boat. Everything we did needed a ticket. We swam in the lower pond for around 1/2 hour after we hiked to the third waterfall. Good change rooms and great fruit smoothies. Watched the...More

U need to pay 10k kip for boat riding to go into the village (the tad sae waterfall place) and 15k kip for the entrance fees. Nothing much at this place, but u may want to ride on an elephant (I didn't do this, though).

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.

We stayed in the downtown, just next to the main streets. There is no other place close to the Tad Sea Waterfall which is out of the downtown. It takes 45 minutes - 1 hour to Tad Sea by tuk tuk. But the road is quite good... More
