Khao Luang Cave

Post by Big Boy » Thu Feb 06, 2014 8:36 pm

Not as grand or inaccessible as the Phraya Nakhon Cave, which I visited a few weeks ago, this cave is well worth a visit. It is situated on the Northern side of Petchaburi and easily accessed by road to within the last 100 yards or so. Even then, there is a good footpath leading up to it, and fairly good steps going down.

Big Boy, you must be exhausted after your first year in Thailand. :D

Thoroughly enjoying it actually. After the health scare with my leg, I realise I need to do it while I can. Things could have turned out differently, and I might have missed it all.

Great Pictures Big Boy!
As well as the pictures of the Wat and other places near Petchaburi.
I have stopped by there in Petchaburi town when travelling with my relatives, but we always seem to be headed elsewhere so don't usually get to see the sites. Maybe in the future, I too will have more time in Thailand, so hopefully I can stop and smell the flowers.

Impressive BB, you've probably seen more of Hua Hin and the surrounding area in one year than I did in 12 years of living there. :mrgreen:
