Tad Yuang Waterfall

We’ve seen Engrish writing before, one of my all time favorites is Chinglish, but I don’t know if this would qualify as Laogrish, or they just write English with a Lao Pakse accent…Tai Tai Engrish.

Tad Yuang

We visited Tad Yuang on November 20, 2008 and it’s located about 40 kms from Pakse and 8 kms from Paksong.

This picture below is right at the face of the fall, the waterfall mist is very much like a drizzle and I would imagine that you could see rainbows on a clear day.

The place is very serene with beautiful landscape, and many romantic little gazebos to sit and relax.

Since this is not too far from Paksong, the Lao coffee capital, I’m not surprised to see coffee crops planting as part of their landscape.  I was hoping to visit Paksong because my cousin has a small coffee farm there, but due to our short stay at Pakse, we didn’t have time but seeing the coffee trees at Tad Yuang and Tad E-Tou more than made up for it.

Souvenir shop is nothing like the one in the US, here you’d find dried beef (deer) jerky hanging on rings of bamboo robes, peppers dried in the open, and much more.
