Valuables at Kuang Si Falls

Hi, can someone please tell me if there is somewhere to leave valuables such as wallets or cameras while swimming at the falls?

As we travel as an independent couple we don't have anyone to 'watch our belongings' as such. Not sure I would want to leave things with the TukTuk driver really

Thanks in advance

i am very security focused (maybe too much) since someone tried to pickpocket me in Barcelona

I have bought the below but yet to try out this for swimming with valuables:

Aquapac 608 Keymaster Transparent Waterproof Case.

amazon.co.uk/gp/…

hope it helps, or gives you an alternative idea

let me know how you get on, as i am heading there in February

have a good and safe trip

Mark

As far as I remember there was no where to lock things while swimming. We were in a group of 4, so one of us stayed with the stuff while we were swimming/using the rope swing.

You will definitely want to bring a camera because it's so beautiful... sorry I can't be of much help with suggestions.

Thanks for you help and response, at least we now know there is nowhere to lock anything and can plan accordingly.

Thanks again

If you use something like the waterproof lock thing would be keen to know your experience.

I have something very similar in design to the aquapack. However it is for my small digital camera. It works a treat and I have never had a waterlogged camera so will probably invest in one

If you went there by scooter/motorbike you could store the things in the basket under the seat.

I was lucky enough to meet some other travellers to share a tuk tuk (you can always spot a group checking for tuk tuks). This meant there was always someone looking for my gear while I was in the water.

Another alternative organising a tuk tuk via your guest house. These drivers would not risk losing business with a guesthouse, and they might go the falls as well for a refreshing swim, and can then look after your valueables (obviously try to keep the valueables you take with you to a minimum)
