Viking Cave, Ko Phi Phi Don

2.5
#7 of 10 in Parks in Ko Phi Phi Don
Cave Geologic Formation
The old cave paintings of Viking Cave remain a mystery even today, as depictions of old European boats and Arabic iconography raise the questions of how and why they got there. Due to the population of nesting swallows in the cave, the locals now gather the valuable commodity of bird nests (made out of the swallows' saliva) from the walls. The abundance of scaffolding, people, and birds in the area mean that entrance into the cave is rarely permitted. Most likely, you’ll by passing by via boat and your guide will recount the history of the cave.

  • Nice to see, but nothing special. Clear water.
  • Interesting site but you cannot enter. Locals live in the cave and harvest bird nest materials for making the famous birds nest soup. Interesting and very dangerous looking bamboo scaffolding structures can be seen which are used by the harvesters to gather the material. Unsure to what extent the presence of humans and the harvesting practices are detrimental to the nesting birds though.
  • Just like every other cave, nothing special. Locals live inside for farming. Cannot enter. Just a short drive by yo appreciate it's formation.
  • Beautiful, crystal clear deep blue sea!! I had a nice swim with the fish 😂😂😂😂
  • Nice to drive past, though you cannot access it.

Where to stay in Ko Phi Phi Don

The harbor area in Ko Phi Phi Don offers the greatest variety of accommodations on the island. Mid-range and high-priced beach resorts and simple hotels remain the norm here, though backpacker-aimed accommodations remain available, often with decent facilities at fair prices. Away from the main tourist areas, accommodations become a little more isolated, a little more exclusive, and a little pricier.
