A nice way to spend an afternoon. Entrance was 40 thb and the lantern lady costs 200. Some pretty amazing caverns and a few tight squeezes. Ladies, modest dress but something light - it’s gets pretty warm and humid inside. Try the buttered corn and...More

Quieter when arrived in the earlier morning. Will enjoy and photo bomb more the beauty of nature. Still consider raw for my opinion. We have seen better caves. However definitely a potential with tourism support(I guess)
