“A bit dull”

Hampshire Falls and Caves (Pwe Kauk)
Reviewed January 28, 2014

There's not much sightseeing in the area. It's more a town to relax and enjoy the views. The falls and caves are part of any tour. Waterfalls are nothing spectacular compared to others in Asia. It's more a locals hangout. The caves are extensive so it's a good walk but feels like a Disney attraction with plastic monk statues and Buddhas.

I'm not sure whether we were meant to visit the falls as a legitimate part of our itinerary, or whether we were too early to check in to our hotel and our guide felt that a visit would help pass the time. Whatever the reason, and even though we spent a pleasant hour wandering around the falls and across a rickety bridge, they were mostly man-made and not the type of natural wonder that a tourist would be remotely interested in visiting.

It was great to watch locals bathing and enjoying themselves, but as a previous reviewer mentioned, the rows and rows of stalls selling identical jars of jams was a little bemusing.

Pleasant waterfalls and caves - booked a local taxi which was rickety, old and uncomfortable but the driver was amazing and couldn't have been more helpful and informative.

The cave soooooo many tourists.
People everywhere...
I don't like cave.

I see waterfalls pic now.
Maybe next time I coming only for waterfall.

佛洞超多遊客,讓人一點興緻都沒有;如果全家出遊,可以和小孩在佛洞前玩水。
現在才看到旁邊有瀑布,也許下次去看瀑布吧!

Great to see so many locals at both destinations and hardly any tourists! The caves were outstanding and the falls were worth a look, but wouldnt make a special trip for the falls only.
