  • Tham Khao Luang Cave in Phetchaburi Province Thailand is very attractions, impressive cave housing lots of Buddha staues. The cave is located about 4-5 km outside of Phetchaburi town not so far from s...  read more »
  • We visited the caves with the many Buddhas on the road from Hua Hin to Bangkok-really a good and beautiful experience-running tuk-tuk for 15 baht per person from the parking lot up to the cave entrance, which sits monkeys and looking at you, there is a little stairs to get down in the Grotto. It costs nothing to enter.

  • On the way from Bangkok to Phuket we planned a cave the Khao Luang as a stopover. The cave is in Phetchaburi and about 130 kilometres (depending on the traffic about 1,5-2,5 hrs) away from Bangkok. We could park our car 400 meters before the "caves"forecourt for free, however you should buy a little something for the shop owners in this parking lot in Exchange for the free parking. Overpriced drinking water we would advise against, but for 50 THB we bought a handful of feed for the many monkeys and the old lady in the shop seemed to be satisfied. Directly at the car park, there is a taxi service that wants to drive visitors to the cave entrance. However we would discourage more, to pay approximately 400 metres Road 300 THB/person! On the way to the cave entrance we have can make definitely some nice photos of the monkey a chance to collect nice memories. The entrance into the cave is free and we have mastered the entire visit with our "crocks". Sturdy footwear is not imperative. The cave itself is worth a visit in any case! We could not determine the best time of day to visit because through the open roof of the caves more rain fell as the Sun's rays. A steep stone staircase to get to a kind of anteroom, where in addition to a bat colony on the ceiling already numerous Buddha statues can be seen. We were lucky and hardly any other visitors were present at the time of our visit. In the large main cave is the Buddha statue known by photos as well as the lying Buddha. Through a narrow gate enters a sinus, which also has a stairwell and includes several small and big Buddha statue. Further back in the cave, you will find further access, which is reached via a steep staircase and was closed during our visit at the top of the stairs. The "stairs" is more like a "ladder" and for anxious people probably tend not to recommend. In addition to the statues of Buddha, also many stalactites and stalagmites are worth a few photos. We have spent about an hour in the cave, because we were really overwhelmed by the sight. Maybe enough for a few quick photos only a quarter or half an hour, if you want to enjoy visiting but really, you should allow about an hour. Conclusion: Positive: - free sight of statues and stalactite cave of overwhelming entrance and parking - negative:-completely overpriced offer of the taxi driver
