Tham Khao Luang Cave is quite an accessible cave as compared to some i have come across that requires you to do some trekking and climbing a few flights of thousand steps - i am sure you know what i am talking about. After parking, visitors are required to buy a return ticket (i think it was 15baht or 30baht)... More

A ride up the hill to the entrance and back costs 15 thb (which is a fair price), but if you do not want to pay, you can walk – it is about 200 m at the most. The hill is infected with monkeys which sometimes behaved very agressively – we even had to give up the idea of visiting... More

Although we had a car, we had to park it at the start of the incline and take the short Jeep journey to the cave entrance (15B return). There are steep steps down into the cave (with a handrail in places) and the floors can be slippy - so care must be taken. However, it is worth the effort, especially... More

Definitely stop by if you are in the area - we loved it! It's quite spacious and lit up inside so you will get some beautiful pictures out of it. I would advice people who get claustrophobic or get short of breath easily.

Wonderful cave. Buddhist nun very welcoming. Very beautiful place to visit if in area. Monkeys not at all a problem unless you have stacks of food or drink with you! We went with a young family (6/9 years old) great tour guide - Nan

Interesting cave. Next to the main cave is a path that leads to to a very scenic clearing in the forest.

We stayed for some day at thai friends around Bangkok and did a trip to Hua Hin. On the way we went to Tham Khao Luang Cave. After arriving the parking lot a lady offered to take care about our car for 40 bath. Taking care? Yes! Monkeys are all around - jumping on the cars, breaking maybe mirrors or... More

This is the first place I take people when they come to visit my city. I love the little elephant trunk that has been carved out of the stalactites. Make sure to walk into the second chamber, if you go there at the right time in the afternoon, sunlight drifts in and it looks absolutely magical
