It takes roughly an hour from Luang Prabang's Tourist Street to cycle to Tad Thong Waterfalls. We rented bikes for 15,000 kip each — you need to leave your passport as a deposit.
The admission to Tad Thong Waterfalls is 20,000 kip. Make sure you have some water, sunscreen, and insect repellent before you set out on this half-day trip!
|The first 50 minutes we slowly cycled out of the beautiful Old City of Luang Prabang. Once we got out of the UNESCO World Heritage Town, it wasn't as pleasant anymore — dusty roads, local shops, and of course, ugly construction. The air wasn't even fresh because people were burning stuff. Well, if you want "real" or "authentic" Southeast Asia, there you have it. It's still fairly nice though. There wasn't much traffic so it wasn't stressful to ride. Quite an easy ride, actually.|
