A cave with a giant reclining Buddha, plus various other statues. Very scenic setting, the dark cave with the shiny giant Buddha. At the back is also a really funny (and basic) prophecy machine: donate a coin and it will tell you a number. Next...More

Wat Suwannakhuna is often called the Monkey Temple or the Golden Cave and it is about 10 minutes before Phang Nga. The monkeys are a bit savage here due to the busloads of naive tourists who are feeding them. Once inside the cave for some...More

Such a beautiful place! Gorgeous cave with some really amazing photography opportunities. Side note; the monkeys can be very aggressive and will absolutely bite you. I was bitten after a kid threw peanuts everywhere. They absolutely swarmed. 40 minutes is plenty of time to see...More

This was our stop on James Bond island tour. Ugly, agressive monkeys, annoying sellers, Buddha cave is for 5 minutes. Really nothing special to see.
