    This cave was bigger than I anticipated! We really enjoyed exploring and wandering around. We were the only ones around! There are bats and hidey holes to see so keep your eyes peeled.  more »

    This visit to the cave temple was very interesting. We enjoyed going through the cave complex, although some of the passages are quite narrow and low. It's probably not suitable for anyone too frail o...  more »

    Wat Tham Khao cement Located on the road-the old House This cave is located within the temple, and the smaller cave within the cave. Separate multiple cave is named after the stone caves found within the Sub.

    Weekday low season you have the caves to yourself. If your obese(fat) then forget these caves not for the faint hearted. Some of the best caves around

    This temple and cave is less than half an hour on a bicycle from Kanchanaburi town, and you can rent them in town for 50 baht a day, or you could get a scooter, motorbike or taxi if you prefer. It would take about an hour to walk. The entry is 30 baht, plus any donations. It's very professional, with a leaflet telling you about each room of the cave. The cave itself is amazing. There are Buddhist statues and shrines throughout, a room with a hole in the roof and the roots of a willow tree hanging down inches from your face, a huge golden Buddha and bats everywhere. The monks are very friendly and can answer any questions you have, and you can take pictures throughout the whole cave and surrounding area. At the exit of the cave there is a bamboo hut with photos from the construction of the Death Railway, along with facts and information about each photo, all of which was very informative. Nearby, the other direction from the road, up a small incline is a large golden Buddha overlooking the railway line, worth walking an extra two minutes for the view.

    After visiting the cave walk along to the end of the track. There are excellent views over the river.

    My favorite cave in the area. Sometimes you have to hold your breath to get through the next small chamber but thats also a bit exciting. Not adviced for people who dont like small spaces.

Where to stay in Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi town center offers plenty of comfortable hotels, with pricier ones located right on the banks of the River Kwai. Move away from the river to take advantage of a drastic drop in prices for rooms offering much the same level of comfort and facilities provided by the city's riverside alternatives. Explore the rural areas for budget hotels, quirky rental apartments, and guesthouses making use of their scenic surroundings.
