The tour only gave us a few hours at the falls which left just enough time to hike the steep hill to the top, take a dip, and climb back down. It was also home to many Asian black bears who have been saved and put in a large enclosed sanctuary with a ton of toys and custom made bear hammocks. With so much of this area to explore we decided to rent motorbikes in a couple days and return to spend the whole day walking through the jungle and swimming in the pools.
Today, we took another pair of dollar a day bicycles and explored further into the urban areas, crossed more bridges, and climbed the remaining temples we only previously saw from a distance. We finished the afternoon lounging on the edge of the river drinking BeerLao in the beach. All activities I speak of are buffered on each side by excellent food and drink.
