Wat Tham Manrong

Our rating:

The cave temple is well signposted and conveniently not all that far off the main road between Bang Saphan Yai and the main beach area.

Photo of Wat Tham Manrong

It contains several impressive chambers, lined with dozens of seated Buddha images under neon light.

The wat is at the foot of the hill and the monks will turn on the lighting system as you arrive after you pay a requested 20 baht donation.

This is a simple cave to reach and well worth the effort should you need a break from the beach.
