At the Kuang Si Falls, a pool of turquoise water eddies at the base of one large waterfall in a spectacular forest setting. The water then flows through a series of natural cascades that appear stepped like hillside rice paddies. Just outside Luang Prabang, the falls’ turquoise water flows pleasantly around you while you bathe in the shallow pools or swim in the deep. And for the game few, the rope swing over the lowest pool will bring out their inner Laotian Tarzan. And perhaps, after a walloping splash, a giddy smile or two. Great fun in a mesmerising setting.
