Surrounded by lush tropical jungle, Kuang Si Waterfall feature a series of travertine cascades and turquoise pools. The three-tiered waterfall--the largest in the area--spills from the shallow pools on the top of a sheer hillside and then drops 60 m (200 ft) into a cluster of natural pools. Put on some sturdy shoes and climb the slippery trails on the side of the cascades to get to the top. Amenities include well-kept pathways and bridges, picnic tables, and wooden huts near the entrance where you can change into a swimsuit. The scenic journey to the waterfall, leading across paddy fields and past farming villages, is an attraction in its own right.

Absolutely beautiful falls. I recommended also hiking up to the top of the falls, away from all the tourists. A few nice places to swim. Best to get their earlier, however the water will be colder. Beautiful, clean and well maintained park.
Great views of the waterfall and the pools where you can dip in. There is also a hike up. Make sure that you enter via the left side especially in the wet season, it is worth to see few viewpoints along the way. There is also a bear sanctuary which is great to visit and see the little cute moon bears.
