Establishment
“One of Thailand’s most beautiful and certainly the most photographed one is the Phraya Nakhon cave in Prachuap Khiri Khan province, This impressive cave is located inside Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park and getting to the cave you will have some magnificent views of beaches, mountains and forests. The first thing you will see when entering the cave is a dry waterfall in the first chamber. This chamber also contains stalagmites and stalactites, as does the other chamber. The main chamber to the left of the entrance chamber contains the famous Kuha Karuhas pavilion. As the roof of the two chambers are open, rain and sun light come into the cave allowing bushes and trees to grow there. Late afternoon, it gets dark quickly inside the cave and you should make it back in time across the hill to catch the boat back.”

“This walk over the headland will delight you with some impressive views of the natural coastline. The walk is split into two sections, around 45 minutes each, divided by a beautiful, secluded beach. Stop at the beach to take it easy or otherwise brave the full distance. This is not for the weak of heart! It's quite tough in places! PLEASE WEAR APPROPRIATE WALKING SHOES, WEAR SUNSCREEN, A HAT AND PLENTY OF WATER. ”

Resort
“If you have your own transport and are in town for more than one week, it's worth the 50 minute drive South to Dolphin Bay - one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. Sit at the resort, or perhaps at Monkey Bar, and watch the tide roll in and away. A magical day out for all the family.”

Point of Interest
“The magnificent Phraya Nakhon Cave is one of the most mystical and mysterious landmarks of Thailand but only a few travellers get a chance to take a picture of it. The reason is simple: this gold and green pavilion is hidden inside a hard to reach cave and only a handful of dedicated visitors will do the effort to visit it. Those who do are rewarded with a stunning vision that looks like it's straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. ”

Place of Worship
“This Wat (Thai Temple) is a quiet peaceful place to visit. The smaller Wat to the North is a place to give offerings of incense, candles and flowers. Across the street is a pond area with pre-historic turtles and catfish. There is another secret surprise which I will tell you about if you come stay (I was asked not to tell too many people).”
