Kuang Si Falls is unlike most waterfalls which end in deep dark pools. This three-tiered waterfall in Laos has bright turquoise pools that rival the Caribbean sea. Tucked into a steep hillside, the shallow pools allow for the unusually bright color to shine through.
Just 29 kilometers south of Luang Prabang, it’s a favorite day trip for both tourists and locals. Walk around this city in north-central Laos for just a bit and it’s guaranteed you’ll have tuk-tuk drivers offering to take you to these marvelous falls.
