Sharing twinkies

Tuasan Falls, Catarman, Camiguin by badboymarbss 
Chasing Waterfalls! #twink #adventure #travel #asian #Cebuano #skinnydipping
As usual in this neck of the woods, there's precious little to report on. Waterfalls are so great, how on earth can these make headlines, let alone in Southeast Asia?

Unless for associated negatives ..., see previous posts. Or not. 
But let's just present the beauty of Southeast Asia waterfalls and their users / admirers ...

We started off with the Philippines (above), the following is an oft-reproduced picture from Laos, I believe, even more accurately Kuang Si falls south of Luang Prabang town.

Sage Stephens is the @jess.wandering to my @everchanginghorizon ...….............................................................................. Tag a few friends you'd like to share this pool with!!
Laos has some superb falls, too many to mention but only a few more or less accessible ones which of course attract large numbers of tourists. 
So it's no wonder that local authorities are seeking to promote their own waterholes to attract more visitors. 
Oudomxai province, bordering China, wants more Chinese visitors and the beautiful and once lonely Nam Kat waterfall is part of this attraction. Vientiane Times (Dec. 20):
'Mr Somchith added that there were several places of interest in the province- one of which is Nam Kat waterfall. This beautiful spot is popular with locals and foreigners alike and receives about 100 visitors a day'. 
 The Nam Kat waterfall is a popular spot with visitors to Oudomxay province.
Cheeky

 Because Instagram are a bunch of prudes... #freethenipple Thanks @acaciahoy for this amazing photo at Pongour Waterfall in Vietnam.

Well, momentarily the world's source of pictures is instagram, so expectingly there's little freshness / cheekiness allowed though it reeks of double standards. 
Above the half natural look from Vietnam. Power to u, ms Acaciahoy!

Below more mischievousness from the Philippines

Possible bad news, TTR Weekly (Dec. 6) reports on Tripadvisor jotting down the leading trends for trips in the region:
“The Attractions Trend Index reveals the diverse mix of sites and activities in Southeast Asia that are rising with travellers when they move around the region,” said TripAdvisor Asia Pacific communications director, Janice Lee Fang'.
Two waterfalls make the list, the first:
'Tegenungan Waterfall, Ubud, Indonesia
Make the most out of your visit to Ubud with a private guided tour, where one of the stops is the spectacular Tegenungan Waterfalls. Described as a “must-visit” in Ubud by TripAdvisor users, the 20 metre falls are best known for its natural scenery, clean waters and huge waterfall pool which is ideal for swimming'.

Note here how society encourages sexiness, though nudity seems to be too much sexiness (?). And this on an island where naked bathing is quite common, at least in rural areas with a surplus of nature ...

The other waterfall on Tripadvisors radar:
'Kawasan Falls, Moalboal, Visayas, Philippines
Known for its clear waters and natural beauty, Kawasan Falls is best explored with a local guide: trek through surrounding local villages, cross abandoned bridges and hop on a wooden raft for a ‘hydro massage’ under the falls'.
Not Kawasan, but still a good Filipino fall:

September saw some heavy rains in the north of Thailand leading to bans on visits to some of Chiang Mai's waterfalls. The Bangkok Post (Sep. 13)
'Four waterfalls in two national parks in Chiang Mai have been closed to tourists after heavy rain and subsequent run-off made the areas too dangerous for visitors'.
Not included was Mork Fa falls:

Other Thai news, this nice article on heading for a "secret" waterfall (Bangkok Post, Dec. 22):
'These days, it wouldn't be a surprise if a 24-hour convenience store, or even a community mall, pops up in your neighbourhood. But what if it's a waterfall, a big natural waterfall? That would be a different story. In October, I was amazed when I heard the news about people flocking to Namtok Hin Lat, a newly-discovered waterfall in Tha Yang district of Phetchaburi province'.
Author explores getting there by bike, not a common feature in Southeast Asia alas. Interesting read as well.

Bangkok Post (Nov. 20) posts a vdo on a natural fish spa located at Huai Luang waterfall, Ubon Ratchathani province. 
Never experienced this? Quite common, does put a damper on skinnydips though! 

Finishing off with a different sort of waterfall, from Sihanoukville province's K'bal Chay waterfall:

Amazing place in Cambodia! #kbalchay#waterfall#cambodia#rain#nature#sihanoukville#beautiful
