Phung Chang Cave

Our rating:

It’s pricey at 500B for just over an hour and taking photographs is not allowed, but it is spectacular.


No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

Only reachable by tour, visitors are led through the cave partly on foot and partly by canoe, and at times wading through knee deep water. Best known for several rock formations that resemble elephants (they really do look like elephants too), the cave also boasts some magnificent gold and red coloured walls, massive stalagmites and stalactites, cavernous rooms and a few tight pinches as well.

Tours of the cave may be booked through the tour companies in Phang Nga town, which would cost a little more but include a ride there and back from your hotel.

If visiting independently simply head south on Phet Kasem Rd and look for the sign on the right. The cave entrance and visitor centre is located behind a temple.
