We stopped here on our way to the "James Bond Island", and we were not expecting too much to be honest. When we arrived I decided to buy some food for them outside (nuts and bananas) and then go inside the cave. At the end of it you can go out to a forest full of monkeys, all together there... More

Very nice place to go, just rent some bicycles and go there. They will ask you to leave your bikes down the hill, and try to force you to take the tuktuk uphill 50THB, but I would advice to walk - it is not a long way to the cave entrance. There are some monkeys also, feeding them is prohibited... More

Among caves in Phetchaburi province, Khao Luang is a must to visit, because of the large number of Buddha images found inside the cave, including a meters high Buddha image cast by order of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V). The atmosphere inside the cave is serene and quiet, Buddhist people will pay respect to the Buddha images burning candles and incense... More

it was very heavy rain the night before and in the morning but we decided to chance the trip. We arrived about 10.30am and took the Tuk Tuk to the top and a return ticket cost 60baht each. The caves are free. We were kindly warned by a nice Thai lady at the top that we must be very careful... More

On Sunday my friend and I went to Phetchaburi, a town about 2.5 hours southwest of Bangkok (170 Km/105 miles) We were headed to the Khao Luang Cave and hopefully see the supposedly omnipresent native monkeys. First of all, we were inundated with monkeys!!!!!!!!!!!! These wild monkeys are all over the place and all over town. They are not real... More

20 minute tips review is right! It is a beautiful spot and an interesting ride up to the top in a tuk tuk. Short walk up maybe 50 steps to the top and then a fairly steep descent down. There is a handrail and the steps are mostly even. If you take it steady most people can make it down... More

We loved our visit to the Tham Khao Luang Cave. I wasn't expecting much when I came here but I was extremely impressed. The cave itself isn't that extensive but the main floor of the cave is amazing with the large beam of sun light shining down on the main floor next to the Buddha shrine. Despite the weekend tourists,... More

We went early in the morning arriving around 8am by self drive motorbike. A can will take you up the steep hill for 15 baht a person...and bring you back down.... this will mean no walking past the dozens of monkeys waiting on the road. Free entrance, great cave with a lying Buddha amongst many other Buddhist icons. It's not... More
