This is a pretty little waterfall with well organised pathways and bridges to take you on a nice scenic route to the foot of the falls

The waterfalls are not very high and they do extend over a fair area with more than one waterfall. Easy to walk around and enjoy the experience. Everyone swimming during the hottest parts of the day.

This is a lovely little area with nice walkways and paths. Worth a visit if you are in the area. They are more like cascades than waterfalls though.

Kids loved the place but it was way too crowded because we went on a weekend. Local shops are lined up and offers a variety of interesting items to buy

The waterfall is not too high. But really beautiful and it look cool. Triditional wines are very around the waterfall. We brought and enjoy tonight.

Pleasant enough area but spoilt by rubbish and an enormous number of stalls selling the local brew. We only spent 30 minutes there which was enough

I saw many kinds of wine were quite cheap and very good place for taking photo. We were there almost dark and we can't make too many area look around. But, it was enough for us to see waterfall and photo shooting.

A typical dirty SE Asian tourist stop, with a huge car park, locals bathing in dirty water, rubbish strewn all over the place, and loads of stalls lining the roads and selling stacks of Myanmar wine. The only interesting thing that I saw was a...More

The site consists of several plateaus and small waterfalls. Very crowded with locals. Hardly worth visiting. It doesn't compare to Anisakan Falls which is amazing!
