All reviews cave temple reclining buddha phang nga day trip james bond island fruit be careful worth a visit other places buy bananas the main road walk up hour drive en route very nice place tourist trap last stop
Went to see Wat Suwan Kuha (aka Cave Temple aka Monkey temple) as part of a tour that took in caves of Phang Nga, Khao Phing Kan aka James Bond Island and the fishing village of Ko Panyi.
As the aka suggests, this is a...More
This cave temple was really fascinating.
It had a small entrance fee (20b).
There are two caves to this temple, the first of which you enter through features a large reclining Buddha and other statues and shrines. The second cave is 'the dark cave' and...More
This place is on the main road between Phuket and Krabi. We took a short stop while travelling by car between the two cities. Due to location it's not crowded by tourists. Outside the cave were some 100 monkeys jumping around waiting for banana. Entrance...More
We visited here on the way back from James Bond island. Was really interesting and lovely to see the different Buddha around the caves.

That was an interesting visit. The temple itself is located inside a cave, and surrounded by a forest with a quite large monkey community. It is well kept and easy to visit. It is a half an hour tour, including the monkey's feeding.
It was our last stop after a long full day tour, it's the first time we see tens of monkeys from all sizes, they were everywhere. Once you buy banana or peanuts from a near stall, you will witness a big group of starving monkeys...More
I doubt if many would come here if it weren't for the monkeys. They are everywhere, and come up very close (too close...) asking for food. There is a reclining Buddha statue and some other statues, but those aren't special. The monkeys are...
