If you do nothing else go and see these caves. Mind blowingingly amazing. Surely one of the wonders of the world. Not busy when we went on Wednesday lunchtime even though its a holiday.

I was absolutely amazed by the caves. An absolute wonder, the caves are mesmerizing. I do recommend you go first thing in the morning as it does get very busy. They open at 9 am. Do both the upper and lower caves.
