Ban Gioc is an impressive multi tier waterfall in the east of Cao Bang province. It is located in a beautiful surrounding with an interesting fact – half of the falls belong to Vietnam, the other half to China. The pond between is actually the border. It is one of the main attractions of the province for a reason. You should certainly not miss it when doing a motorbike trip of the Cao Bang Loop. Exploring the north east of Vietnam is certainly something unique when visiting the country.
How to get there
From Cao Bang it is around 90km to Ban Gioc if you do the Cao Bang Loop. I saw a few buses going that way, but you might need to change buses in Quang Nguyen first. Check at the bus station if direct buses are going. Some might stop at the village nearby, which is 15 minutes away from the falls.
