I could not get the grin off the face of mine, when I got accustomed to the rocking feeling. The Mahout took the camera of mine and jumped down on the ground and also left the elephant to stroll together with us driving. It was...More

We spent aproximatelly 4 hours there in complete and it was amazing. Ziplining was probably the best but you have to spend eight dolars. Extremely costly.

Ok - shocked actually - Very ordinary waterfalls. But it was dry, no rain for awhile. Dirty pools of mozi’s. Very tacky setting. Wait - I’m sure in the rain it is spectacular !!!! Maybe ask ;) The walk was ok, muddy, certainly not easy...More

Tad Sae waterfall is convenient to Luang Prabang, but it has some fun in getting there, including a little boat ride. I chose to do the ZipLine which went through the trees above the falls and river flow. There was many runs and so it...More

You can ride on the elephants and splash some water. There are swim areas in the falls and water seemed cleaner than Kuang Si when I visited. This in enroute to the many kayaking tours that is offered at LPQ so it's worth a pit...More

I went to the elephant village and had an excursion there. Otherwise, it was not that special for me (not after having seen 4000 islands).

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.
