Kouang Si Waterfall in Luang Prabang

First of all, this post is my 100th post on my blog! Yay!  I couldn’t think of a better subject than the beautiful waterfall near Luang Prabang.

Even though Luang Prabang a smaller town without public transportation, it was easy to explore the surrounding areas on a day trip without the headaches of transferring buses and ever-changing time tables.

There are plenty of travel agencies near the major tourist sites that can set you up on a mini tour of the waterfalls.  I just picked the first one I saw, walked in, and said I wanted to see the waterfall the next day.  I gave them the money, they told me what time to show up.  Simple.

I signed up for a shared minivan with several other tourists from around the world and we arrived at our destination after an hour of bumpy roads and beautiful scenery.

We had a few hours at the waterfall and while there were plenty of people, I wasn’t bumped or shoved and people were on the best behavior, for the most part.  I did see some gentlemen smoking cigarettes.  Thanks a lot guys for ruining the beautiful nature with your huffing and puffing.  Now instead of flowers and trees, I only smell ashtrays.

The area was clean as far as I could see.  There were food stalls and small restaurants in the parking area, but I think people did their best not to litter.

I would definitely recommend going if you find yourself in Luang Prabang.  There’s a good reason why it’s on every postcard from Laos.
