Bat Cave near Cha Am

Post by MikeM2 » Wed Nov 22, 2017 6:56 pm

Best way to travel here from Hwa Hin ? (and return !!)

Is there a tour operator in Hwa Hin that could do this trip for me ?

Many thanks

You'd probably be better off getting a taxi. When you get there, just before dusk, you sit on somebody's roof to watch the spectacle - nothing special apart from the sight of 2 million bats flying out of the cave, which is actually amazing. When we went, we were the only ones there. The owner of the house will hold his hand out for a tip as you leave (I think we gave 100 Baht each).

:laugh: Actually, without GPS it is very hard to find. My GPS took me across a dirt track through the middle of a field. This was particularly spectacular on the way home, when it was dark. Bats everywhere swooping down grabbing the bugs in my headlights. A shame I didn't have a dashcam back then - it would have been a great movie.
