Thac Dong Cave Pagoda

Located four kilometres from Ha Tien and just three kilometres shy of the Cambodian border, Thach Dong cave pagoda is the only notable Buddhist pagoda in town that really deserves a visit – so why not stop and stretch your legs if you are on your way too/from the border? Enter the labyrinthine caverns to find cloistered altars and chambers concealing funerary tablets.

The echoing tunnels and dark stairs up to small grottos are strangely atmospheric, adding a solemnity to the simple shrines. Hike up one of the openings to enjoy a good view of rice fields and hills of Cambodia. The cavern is sometimes home to a colony of bats, so you decide whether to look directly up.

The entrance has a large gate adorned with the name, so you can’t miss it from the road.
