Typical tourist spot. But if you claim up to the cave and then take a ladder to the top of the hill after few hundred metres you will find a real beauty there.

We came to Tad Sae as part of the Elephant Village Tour (great BTW, separate review) and enjoyed our visit. As we visited Kuang Si the day before, the comparison is inevitable: not as scenic and lower water flow (at least end of July, they...More

It is not as large and impressive as the Kuang Si Waterfall. We were lucky to go there when there was water. I was more impressed with the way to reach it by sitting on the boat around 10mins. It is such a great experience...More

Very relaxing waterfall with multiple turquoise watered tiers. Small restaurant, more of a locals waterfall than Kuang Si. When I was there in July there was plenty of water and the swimming was great.

Not very high, but rather extensive in width, these falls seem to envelop you with water cascading from many directions. They can only be reached by boat out of Elephant Village.

It took 20 mins. (one-way) boat ride to visit the Tad Si Fall, nothing in comparison to Kuang Si Fall; just like a swimming pool to chill out under the hot weather. It was especially so when we went there at the beginning of rainy...More

I'd read negative reviews and didn't expect much, but we loved our visit to these falls! Yes, the falls aren't as good as Kuang Si, but worth it for a swim and an explore if you're in the area.

Sad thing about Tad Sae is it's dry during hottest season like April or May. But still have some water runing down... you may feel a bit disappointed seeing a dry waterfall.

We stayed in the downtown, just next to the main streets. There is no other place close to the Tad Sea Waterfall which is out of the downtown. It takes 45 minutes - 1 hour to Tad Sea by tuk tuk. But the road is quite good... More
