Very nice falls however the site is very commercial with zip lines & elephant rides. Best to get here very early to beat the crowds. You can also hike a bit further up to some more secluded areas

My afternoon there I was amazing and the place is not too crowded. I walked up to the 3rd fall and was totally alone there.

The 20,000 kip boat ride (5 minutes) to the waterfall was quite a weak hearted one, as it seems the boat can belly up any moment, if one is not familiar with small boat ride. However, one will be rewarded thereafter. with the beauty of...More

Admit it, if you have seen many waterfalls, you just don't need to see many more. We though decided to come to this one once more and were surprised. It's been a journey to get there, nice adventure on a boat, but then you also...More

Don't get me wrong, this place is quite nice and worth a visit. However bear in mind that it's quite a tourist trap as well. First of all, the arrival - you pay 5.000 KIP for parking, 10.000 KIP for a boat ride and then...More

By arriving before lunch you avoid the madding coach crowds. Walk from the top down . Can see bear sanctuary at bottom.

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
