See the Incredible Kuang Si Falls
Just an hour away from the city of the ancient city of Luang Prabang, the impressive Kuang Si Falls with its impish fairy pools and jewel-toned waters is a popular tourist attraction and a must-see for anyone visiting the country. Don’t forget your swimsuit, so you can splash in pure turquoise and get a shoulder massage from the pouring waters.
En route to the falls, you’ll also pass a bear sanctuary. Many of the creatures here are victims of poaching; sun and moon bears in the region are caught and have their hands cut off – these are then sold in China as traditional medicine. The bears are unable to fend for themselves in the wild, and so the sanctuary takes care of them.
