Tuk Tuk from Luang Prabang:
Negotiable price. For the tuk tuk to take us there and to take us home again, we paid around 25 US dollars. We were around eight people, which made it a lot cheaper per person.
How much time do you need there?
3-4 hours is enough. Then you have time to see everything, and also relax and swim in the waterfall.
When is the best time to go:
We were there in the end of February, and the temperature was great! But I think the best time to be there in general is around the end of March / April. When it comes to arriving to the waterfall, come early in the morning, before all of the tourist has arrived.
What should I do there:
You should definitely to go up the trail towards the top of the final waterfall to get a great view. Also relax and swim in the different pools of the lower part of the waterfall, and enjoy the (extremely) turquoise water. And take pictures!! It`s not every day you’re in such a beautiful place.
What should you not do:
Well, there is a «no sleeping in this area» sign, so I guess you should not do that.
Why should Kuang Si Waterfall be on my bucket list:
This is a place really worth visiting before you die, and it`s even more beautiful in real life. It`s one of those places you see on Tumblr and Instagram and you dont really believe it exists before you`re actually there.
