It's an Ok cave, not one of the most impressive we have seen, but is worth a visit. There's an interesting souvenir shop at the ticket office.

If you visit, expect to spend an hour maximum here. The caves are easy to stroll through and are interesting though not huge. There is a shop and cafe here too. It’s a cheap, quick trip. I think it has the potential to be improved...More
