Kuang Si Falls is a very beautiful multi-level waterfall, the most beautiful in Laos and one of the most beautiful in all of Southeast Asia. Several Cascades at different levels formed pools in which you can swim. Some of the pools are marked with a "No Swimming" sign because they are dangerous. If you wish, you can climb to the top of the waterfall on a simple path and stairs. There is a view of the surrounding area, but the waterfall itself is poorly visible.
Near the waterfall there is an infrastructure for staying here at least all day: souvenir market, cafes and restaurants, parking. Also on the territory there is a mini-zoo of Himalayan bears, or rather, their rescue center. If time permits, you should really come here for a whole day for a picnic, swim in the pools, wander through the jungle. In general, this is a must-visit place from Luang Prabang.
