Beautiful cave
Jul 2020
Visited the cave on the way to the WFFT animal rescue center. It is a small detour from the main road near Petchaburi town.

Plenty of parking space available at the foot of the hill, although some other reviewers mentioned parking fee of 20 baht/hour, we weren't charged parking fee, the lady there just asked us to buy some drinks from the stalls nearby to support the cost of upkeep, which I think is quite reasonable and happily obliged.

The ticket is 25baht/person and includes a shuttle ride from the foot of the hill to the entrance of the cave and back. I believe there is no dual pricing as well, so foreigners pay the same price as Thais, which is a rarity in Thailand.

The cave is quite big and has three main chambers. There are buddha images throughout the cave and the atmosphere is serene and peaceful. Although if you're there alone, it might feel a bit creepy.

There is also a natural hole in the cave that let in some natural skylight, great place for some stunning photo.

In all, highly recommended if you are going to Hua Hin from Bangkok, it is a small detour for a great experience.

Hidden Gem in Petchaburi!
Aug 2020
On our way back to Bangkok after a weekend stay in Hua Hin, we decided to take the detour to this interesting temple sight in Petchaburi. Well sign posted from the main road (and with a little help from Google), it wasn't difficult to find. The 25 baht /pers cover charge gave us entry to the cave and a trip in the shuttle bus/tuk-tuk up to the cave entrance. (It would have been a 10 minute walk up a fairly steep hill otherwise with some aggressive monkeys to tend with). We used around 15-20 mins to visit all 3 different chambers and with some of the worshipers shaking their incense sticks it was quite atmospheric. Almost like a scene from an Indiana Jones movie.

PS: Plenty of space for parking - 20thb for the hour and a fresh coconut drink on our return.

Impressing
Jul 2020
Khao Tham Luang is a succession of caves, with the main caves around 50 meters high. All the caves are filled with Buddhasand othe rreligious artifacts. caveat the stairs are quite steep. The entrance fee is 25 baht and includes the round trip from the foot of the hill ( many monkeys there ) to the top in small songtheaws.

I feel very peaceful when you visit this cave. It's really amazing. Watch out for the monkey trying to grab your bag or clothes:)

Worth making the effort to visit.

Feeling a bit negative before making trip as travel literature do not do this justice. Climb down a few flights of steps to gain entry to main chamber. Features a number of Buddha images. Easy to access second chamber and then through archway to the final third chamber. Entry to this third chamber quite atmospheric.

Not sure if my taxi just did not have the horse power to get up the hill to the cave entrance, or wether it is protocol to change vehicles at bottom of hill.

Get there early to beat the crowds...

...more interested in selfies than history. I got a communal taxi to the gate but had to take a communal taxi from the gate to the area in front of the entrance to the cave. Not sure why that was the case...It is a bit out of town but the road is flat so very doable on bicycle.

Above Average Cave
Feb 2020
Easily accessible by tuk tuk from downtown Phetchaburi. Totally devoid of other tourists when we were there early in the morning. Several sections inside cave with a variety if buddha images. Stalactites and stalagmites aplenty! Worth the visit, but only about 20 mins max.

Worth a Visit
Dec 2019
I visit this cave often when I have visitors to Petchaburi. It is easy to do both the cave and visit Phra Nakhon Khiri as they are within a few minutes drive of each other. I would recommend going to the Phra Nakhon Khiri first as the afternoon heat can be unbearable. If you visit the cave at the right time of day, the light shining through the opening of the cave can make for incredible pictures. There are also many monkeys at both locations which are always entertaining to watch. There are several flights of stairs going down into the cave so not recommended for people with mobility issues. When you arrive near the cave you will have to park your car and buy an inexpensive ticket to have someone drive you up to the cave entrance. I usually walk back down the hill (10 minutes) to see the monkeys playing on the side of the road.
