It is quite a climb over two hilltops, but what a great reward awaits you at the end. A small temple in the cave is lit through a big hole in the cave dome. Around 11:00 am the sunlight through the roof is topmost.

We were unsure whether to do this as was about an hours taxi ride from Hua Hin and read that it was a steep climb etc to temple . All I can say it is well worth it ! The temple is breath taking !...More

A previous review entitled "Spectacular" pretty much summarises this day out. Take the short boat ride around the bluff to the beach and enjoy. The climb up to the cave entrance is not TOO strenuous, just pace yourself and you get there in no time....More

The walk to the grotto from the parking lot is tremendously varied. Do not go for the rip off boat offers the walk to the grotto is easy. First you climb a gentle slope then go down hill. You end up on a beach amid...More

We left Hua Hin at about 8am which meant we arrived in the car park at about 9am. Very few people were about at this time and it meant that we were able to easily buy our tickets and then get on the boat which...More

There are two ways to get to the temple/cave. You can take the path from the parking lot, which apparently takes around 2 hours. Or you can take a boat around to the other path (the one we took) and it takes about an hour... More

No crawling necessary. It's a fairly steep path up the hill but plenty of older people and children manage without problems (just regular trainers / walking shoes are fine). Once you reach the caves, they are large caverns... More

Hi guys, My husband and I are travelling to Thailand this Nov end. We are planning to hire a car in Bangkok nd then head to erawan National Park, to Phraya nakhon Cave the next day and then to Phuket and Krabi. We are planning to drop the car in Krabi. For Indian drivers, is it important to have an international driving permit or can we drive with the Indian driving license? Thanks in advance!

Yes, you need an IDP, since the police doesnt read hindi. And in case of a crash your insurance might not pay out. Thai police love to stop you! Hope you have adequate driving experience for safe rravel.
Phraya Nakhon Cave: best option to get from HH to Bang Pu? (5 Replies)
We are looking at various options on how to get from HH to Bang Pu. Are there any tour operators that go there? How about a recommended private driver to hire to take us to Bang Pu and back to HH? We are looking at either going on a Saturday or Sunday since we arrive in HH on a Fri evening and we leave Mon mid morning.

Phraya Nakhon Cave is south of Hua Hin , plenty of drivers around central area in Hua Hin will have sign boards and you show them here you want to go. Where does Bang Pu come into it or are you going there after Hua Hin ?

Hi Guys..back again. Its been awhile but life has been crazy over here and had no time but really looking forward to holiday...only 10 weeks to go. So today's question is regarding day trip.

Like above many years ago :) But I think "same wooden bridge walk that is in Khao Sam Roi Yot Park " might be the boardwalk over the swamp area popular for birdwatching. Maybe someone can suggest a good specific driver , but as said above this is very popular and the drivers will know where to go , Dolphin Bay area is a good spot for lunch / comfort stop (!) Have photos available for where you want to go so drivers are 'clear' I am sure you have seen about Vana Nava and Black...More
