These falls are truly beautiful. Very wide, they just keep on going even beyond what you can see at first. It is a very popular spot so you can expect crowds.

The frozen Pearl Shoal Waterfalls in December are amazing, they are like mini glaciers with water streaming through the ice that make the entire setpiece come alive. Loved it.

This was one of the highlights for me, in my visit to Jui Zhai Gou park, I can see why it is the most photographed attraction. Standing at the top of the waterfall you can feel the force and energy building as it releases the water down to the river below. A very pleasant walk down the steps next to... More

Only one public bus per day at 9 AM from the town to the airport. Taxi cost $60 CND. You have to fight hoards of Chinese nationals to take pictures and try to get on the buses. The multiple-bus system is not the most friendly. Thus, pushing and shoving is exasperated. Not many English signs. For these reasons, this natural... More

Stairs are well located just next to the waterfall for tourist to snap photos. So be very careful! The Waterfall is so refreshing and beautiful ! I love it better than the other waterfalls in the Reserve.
