1. Dai Yem Waterfall (Son La)

Dai Yem Waterfall is located at village road 43, Muong La commune, Moc Chau district, Son La province. This place is considered a symbol of the Moc Chau plateau and has a beautiful natural setting. This waterfall is also known as "Nang Waterfall" and "Ban Vat Waterfall". The reason the waterfall is named Dai Yen is because, according to legend, the waterfall is the bib of a girl who saved a boy from the flood.

It is located on the Vat stream, originating from two streams, Bo Co Lam and Bo Ta Con, in Vat Village. This is a Thai village with a very long history. Vat stream flows about 5km, then combines with a large stream starting from Bo Sap village (bordering Vietnam and Laos). At the confluence of these two streams, the water meets a limestone mountain flowing down to form Dai waterfall's magnificent overalls.

This waterfall is over 100 meters high and is divided into two parts. The upper waterfall is more than 70 meters wide and has nine floors (like the "9 steps of love" in the legend). The waterfall below has only five floors, about 20mm away. Separating the two parts of the waterfall is a flat area that is extremely convenient for sightseeing.

2. May Waterfall (Thanh Hoa)

May Waterfall is located in Thach Lam commune, Thach Thanh district, Thanh Hoa province (about 50km from the city center). May Waterfall has a length of about 100m and nine cascades, large and small, created from the limestone mountain system in the North Truong Son. This is the most beautiful waterfall in Thanh Hoa.

Cloud Falls is also known as "Nine Levels of Love". According to legend, in the past, there were nine fairies on a trip to the lower world who accidentally came across a beautiful waterfall. Because they could not resist the beauty of this waterfall, nine fairies came down here to bathe.

The best time to go to May Waterfall is in the summer, especially from June to August every year. This is the time when it rains a lot, and the water will billow violently, splashing white, cool foam.
