Viking Cave, Ko Phi Phi Don

(2.4/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • The locals are doing their best in order to get from everything and sell you everything, there is nothing to see there apart from a cave 100meters away which they say it belongs to vikings. Yes ok it ...  more »
  • Viking cave is a recess in the stone of the mountain in relation to the sea, beautiful. Part of the route of the parade riding in this place to a note and photos.

  • Closed to tourists so don't waste you time. If it is mentioned in a tour, they will just take to a hundred or so meters away from it, which is pointless

  • 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.
