Detian Falls

At the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa we have 8 incredible pools where we can relax, but today we have chosen a different place in the Asian continent to cool ourselves off: the Detian Falls.

Ban Gioc Detian Falls or Detian Falls are a natural border betweenChina and Vietnam. Administratively they belong to China, although they arejust 272 kilometres far from Hanoi. Its stunning beauty has made them become one of Asia´s main tourist destinations.

They emerge from the course of the river that is born in Guangxi, which goes up to the Guichun River, in Vietnam, and comes back to China.

The Detian Waterfall is Asia´s largest waterfall and the fourth largest transnational waterfall in the world, behind Iguazu Falls, Victoria Falls and Niagara Falls. It goes through three tiers, which are said to be over 70 metres high and 200 metres wide. Its main waterfall is Tongling Gorge. Tourists can only access to it through a contiguous cave.

The waterfall ends in a deep pool, which reaches a depth of over 30 metres and offers a perfect view of Detian Falls.

The Detian Falls are one of the most incredible natural wonders you can find in Asia. Due to humidity the environment around the falls has become one of the greenest and lushest ones in the world.

The best time to visit the falls is summer, when the water reaches its highest level and the cascade is larger. Depending on theseason you visit Detian the landscape completely changes. In spring the scenery is much more colourful,while in autumn brownish and reddish tonalities flood the falls.

If you would like to spend some fantastic days, we suggest coming to Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa. Dive into the turquoise water of our Asian-style design pools. We are looking forward to seeing you!
