When being in Luang Prabang every Tuk-Tuk driver offers to bring you to this spot, which is a few kilometres from town. Tad Sae is not the kind of waterfall I would have anticipated, because the water falls in several steps, the highest of which is just a few metres. Moreover they are not perennial that means from Feb/March on they are completely dried out. Therefore its most fun to visit them right after the rainy season.
I've visited the falls in the morning (9 a.m.), when there were no crowds of people. There are few bathing spots and several bamboo footbridges leading over the waters. The air is pretty wet and hot, so that going into the water is very refreshing. Changing cubicles are avaiable. One of the elephant camps is right at the falls so that bathing with them might be a great thing to do. When I've been there in the end of September the stream was really strong, so that swimming was a hard job. Apart from that there is also kind of a ropeway through the treetops. Unfortunately I didn't have time to try it.
