Viking Cave, Ko Phi Phi Don
(2.4/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a place of passage in most (or all) tours. 1 minute we stopped to take pictures and that's it. With it's landscapes spectacular that there is in Phi Phi, is a pity that we do lose the time with this... Not is can enter and the scaffolding of bamboo I seemed to rubble.

  • This cave is highlighted as one of the attractions on most Phi Phi island tour packages. It is mostly a waste of time... There is nothing much to see here. The boat stops near the caves and they show ...  more »

  • Can't go into cave but scenery is beautiful and looks interesting inside. "Birds Nest Soup" harvest site.
  • You can't go inside but, at least, thats because tey're protecting the cave
  • Bird nest desert collectors stop here. From your boat you just pass by. Delicious delight thought
  • Nothing special about this place, just a short drive by. The structures inside look interesting though
  • Drive by looking, nothing to fancy but ok on my way. I guess. Birds nest harvesting.
