There was plenty of water at the falls as I came to the right time. We took a boat trip to come closer to the falls for a better experience. Interestingly one side is China and the other side is Vietnam. Great opportunities for taking...More

We paid a short visit here (approximately 1 hour) to explore the hidden gem of the North. This waterfall has its beauty all year around, especially rainy season. Be careful with the tourist trap outside of ticket station. There are some dirty toilets, and you...More

This was well worth the trip. The waterfall is amazing, but at times it can be quite crowded. Early morning and late afternoon is the best time to be there. If you're adventurous you could try going to the top of the waterfall. There is...More

It takes pretty much time. We made it from Hanoi to Cao Bang in about 7 hours and 30 min by local vietnam bus. The distance is not that far, however, because of the curvy mountain roads, ups and downs, it takes a time. We... More

Yes I think so. You can do it there and back in one day but I sincerely suggest you don't. Roads are mostly simple and primitively. Off any highway your average speed will be less than 30 mph. Be warned of nearby homestay... More
