Khao Sam Roi Yot
Dec 2020 • Family
Perhaps the most unique feature of Khao Sam Roi Yot is the Sai and Kaeo stalagmite/stalactite caves. You’ll need a head torch or a flashlight to venture into these massively haunting caves. Once you climb down past the entrance, it becomes almost pitch black. For those of you who don’t bring your own headtorch, you can rent a flashlight for 40 THB at the entrance.

Visit to catch the golden hour for the Phraya Nakhon Cave
Nov 2020
Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park is stunning.

At the base, there is a lovely beach area (where people can also camp with permits) and there is a hike up the mountain to see the Phraya Nakhon Cave. We organised a guided tour just through our hotel concierge, and we ended up being the only two on the trip and it was great!

There were two ways to make it Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park when we visited. You could either hike, or catch a boat road. We were able to catch the boat ride over; which was pretty pain free and easy but is also only open depending on tides. Otherwise, you can hike there.

We did visit prior to COVID (November 2019) too, and understand the cave is closed currently. When it is opened, it is a must see.

You need to time your visit too to make the Phraya Nakhon Cave during that magical hour when the sunlight hits the temple. Morning tours are the time to catch the sunlight. We arrived just on about 11AM and it was almost over (in November).

The hike uphill was a bit of effort, and was very hot with the humidity. There were rangers along the track, who checked in on us and our guide a few times. When we reached the cave though, it was so inspiring. We even had it to ourselves for a while.

When we returned back down, we had lunch and cold drinks waiting. Then got to enjoy a few hours on the beach. There are seats you purchase, and from memory were very cheap.

Hike Up the Hill to this Beautiful Site
Jan 2020
We visited the Phraya Nakhon Cave with its royal pavilion and monkeys standing guard. We took a boat from the park entrance to the beach then hiked up the hill/mountain to the cave itself.
It is a steep climb, but not too long (about 30 minutes I think); better to have some good solid shoes. Once inside, you have some nice views of the royal pavilion and while hiking up you do have some nice views of the surroundings. There is a semi-covered restaurant where you can get food or drinks near the beach and it was quite handy because just as we were climbing back down, we had a tropical downpour! Once you take the boat back to the park entrance, there are several restaurants on the beach. We had a nice lunch at the one on the far left when you are facing inland with your back to the beach.

Stunning and peaceful marsh, wonderful conservation
Jan 2020
We only visited the huge marsh area in this park. Lovely day, a weekday, and very few other visitors in the park. We were able to hire a wooden rowboat and skipper. Accessibility note: boats were pulled up out of the water and could be accessed by stepping right in on stable ground. Quite safe and secure. Boat had a small motor, which was only used on occassion. Spectacularly beautiful landscape - huge mountains right up to the edge of the marsh. Was concerned about mosquitoes, but they were not an issue. Marsh is huge, and largely undeveloped/natural. Many birds, many types. Also, lotus were in bloom, which is very lovely. Very peaceful and relaxing ride through the marsh, observing amazing birdlife. A special place.

Wow 🤩 ! It took a long time to reach it as it is not an easy path (be aware if any medical condition) but really worth it!

Its a wonderful place. We did all the way by foot. We are normally trained an we had 40min to the cave. Don’t take the boat if you can. Really expensive and you win 10min and loose a nice view over the dolphin-bay.

MUST DO in Hua Hin
Jan 2020
am not exactly the intrepid traveller and my endurance isn't exactly the best when it comes to scaling heights.

however, would recommend going to the park, taking the shuttle boat service (costs 400 baht) and taking the 'easier' route to visit the Phraya Nakhon Cave if you are as unfit as I am. for those prone to motion sickness like I am, don't worry. it's a short 5-10 minute ride by very experienced/helpful boatmen.

do ensure that you are in proper footwear though I did observe a few female tourists in platform sandals/flip flops scaling the path to the cave. be careful because if you do step on the smooth rocks (you might slip) - the path is quite steep. the view is worth the effort. do try to go at about 9-10 am so that you can see the light streaming into the cave(takes about 30minutes to get in). beautiful.

don't feel pressured to bounce up the hill like those extremely fit and agile tourists I met along the way. I mean, as long as you get there in one piece, you've accomplished enough and you should be proud of yourself.

We really loved the hiking, but our favorite part was the boat ride! So relaxing with beautiful views! Some of our favorite photos of our Thailand trip are from this boat ride, I highly recommend it!

Various attractions
Dec 2019
Visited Phraya Nakhon Cave, Laem Sala Beach, Khao Daeng Canal, Thung Sam Roi Yot Freshwater Marsh and Bueng Bua Boardwalk.

At the canal, you can get a boat ride for 500 baht (6 persons pax). The marsh and boardwalk is located together, but take note the boardwalk is not completely repaired yet but it has been opened now as part of it has been restored. Nice place to visit as there are huts along which provide good shade and to rest.

For reviews on Phraya Nakhon Cave and Laem Sala Beach, go to its individual attraction name at tripadvisor. More details can be found there.
