Phraya Nakhon Cave

Thailand's most photographed cave

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 4 stars



Phraya Nakhon, located a 45-minute climb from Laem Sala Beach, must be one of Thailand's most photographed caves. It's actually two collapsed sinkholes, with the main attraction a small, quite lovely little pavilion made for King Rama V. At mid-morning when the sun peeks through it's particularly photogenic. Look out as well for a crocodile shaped rock and poisonous plants.

How to get there: Follow the steep path running up from the left of the restaurant, when looking away from the beach. It is well sign-posted. Good footware is recommended as the trail is very rocky and slippery after rain. On the other hand, Thai women have been spotted doing it in high heels.
