American magazine Travel+Leisure has included Ban Gioc in Cao Bang Province on the border with China in its list of 21 most beautiful waterfalls in the world.

"In a stunning show of power and grandeur, water flows endlessly through pools, down tiers, and over cliffs in a unique horseshoe shape," it said.

Ban Gioc encompasses a series of waterfalls on the Quay Son River in Trung Khanh District.

Surrounded by limestone karst mountains and rice fields, it is part of the UNESCO-recognized Non Nuoc Cao Bang geopark whose fossils, sediments, volcanic rocks, and karst landscapes are believed to be 500 million years old.

The best way to approach the cascade is by bamboo boat for around VND50,000 ($2.19) per person.

Other famous Asia falls to make the list were Kawasan in the Philippines, Jog in India, Kuang Si in Laos, and Tegenungan in Indonesia.
