    We sat with my young man in the evening at the hotel and thought plan trips in your holiday, when suddenly I remembered my mother's words about the Temple of heaven and hell in Thailand and we decided to sit on his moped and go with Phuket to Wat Tham Ta Pan Bureau of the Monks. Of course on a moped this trip was heavy, first we drove through memory, we didn't have no Internet on the road, no maps, but we focused on the signs in the direction of Pattaya. Journey time about 2 hours with a stop at a café. and once we got to the place we were surprised. It was the feeling of an abandoned place, but the tourists met us along the way. Admission is free, live there and contain Temple monks on donations. And so ... The temple is divided into heaven and hell. Paradise is full of positive energy and various statuettes of Buddha and animals (12 signs of the Chinese zodiac calendar). Just as there are stairs in the monastery the monk. Going up to visit him, monk very kindly taking home, and we got to the observation deck, it provided a view of the mountains and the whole complex of the temple. that would get in the hell ...

    I recommend to climb the scary stairs, peacefully, to the monk's home and enjoy the great views. Calm and enjoyable place.  more »

    Heaven & Hell it is. Walk through the dragons mouth and into the creepy cool cave that goes on with a stream that runs through it. A mynah bird flew in and guided us part of the way. We were blessed by the monk who protects the cave. Then exit as you came and walk down the stairs to hell. Someones imagination went wild. Please donate as they need it for electricity and repairs.

    Paradise and hell museum. Temple on top. Cave with Monk. Strange place with sculptures of people punishment and tortures violence. Not for children. Good viewpoint on rooftop temple.

    Not a must see, the cave was too dark to go as it was heavily raining. What is shown here by the sculptures are the penalties for various sins committed in life

    Strange place with sculptures... Didnt like it too much, but its worth visiting if you are travelling nearby. Viewpoint upstairs. Spectacular views! But need some energy to climb the steps...

    Go through the dragon mouth to the cave and macabre statues park. Climb up the stairs to view platform. Walk around to explore other statues. Wat itself is not interesting.

Where to stay in Phang Nga

Phang Nga does not offer luxurious resorts and features just a handful of budget and mid-range accommodation choices. If you must stay on the main street, ask for a room in the back, or you probably won't be able to sleep from the music and noise blasting throughout the night. Although generally clean, many of the town's old hotels do not all offer hot water, air conditioning, or dependable Wi-Fi. Mid-range hotels, located away from the main street, provide better accommodations with ocean views.
