Ban Gioc, one of Vietnam’s best-known waterfalls, may bewitch any visitor coming to the far northern province of Cao Bang.
Ban Gioc is actually a collective name for two waterfalls on the Quay Son River that marks the border with China.
The falls are surrounded by a breathtaking landscape. The water is particularly thunderous in the wet season but is still beautiful during the dry season.
Tourists can take a raft out into the river to the base of the falls.
