Such a beautiful place! Gorgeous cave with some really amazing photography opportunities. Side note; the monkeys can be very aggressive and will absolutely bite you. I was bitten after a kid threw peanuts everywhere. They absolutely swarmed. 40 minutes is plenty of time to see...More

This was our stop on James Bond island tour. Ugly, agressive monkeys, annoying sellers, Buddha cave is for 5 minutes. Really nothing special to see.

This was an experience that I am glad I had. The Cave Temple is something that has to be visited and is a very good exercise regime as there are so many steps to climb before you reach the cave.

This is a temple with a huge statue of lying Buddha and other statues in a very big cave. See the signatures of the Thai kings on a wall. And of course, monkeys.
