The first thing that people say to do/ visit in Luang Prabang is to head to THE waterfall. Apparently there are 3 different types in Luang Prabang but Tat Kuang Si is the most famous and only a 20 minute tuk tuk ride from the town centre.
Once dropped off at the edge of the ‘park’ you pay the entrance fee and walk through the bear rescue centre before reaching the impressive tiered waterfall. There are a handful of clear blue pools on route to the main waterfall that you can swim in…if you brave the cold waters ( which is a must). The waterfall is 25m tall and to get the best views you can climb the steep steps to the top.
