“Its ok but no where as interesting as the crystal caves.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Most of Kanchanaburis cave temples are worth a visit just to see a subterranean version of Buddhist iconography but this cave provides a more back to nature approach. It is considered one of the largest caves in the region. This in itself means a lot in a place that is littered with caves. The interior is spacious in places so if you are afraid of small places this place is for you. One day I will post about a very secret cave in Kanchaburi called the Crystal caves but not until someone else adds it.

“Kanchanaburi - Lawa Cave - Not worth the time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Personally, not worth visiting as most of the internal electrical lighting is broken and it is in a poor state of repair. If the lighting was fixed it certainly would have been worth the visit

“Lawa Cave next to Resotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

The Lawa Cave have many varieties of hidden Room - Crocodile room, Bat Room, and many other. This stones are looking like lawa come out from volcano and after cool become great diamonds or marbles. After visiting this we just find the place 100m to Resotel. A perfect place for night time with Mon Dance and many other activities.

“Something different”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Depending how many caves you have visited as to what you perceive. For me these caves were nothing extraordinary but interesting all the same.

“Well worth it”

All four members of our family enjoyed going through the cave. We weren't sure what to expect, but it was fun.
