Came to Hua Hin over the Songkran weekend and decided to check out Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park (translation: 300 tips (or peaks) national park). We knew the caves were a highlight and decided to visit this first. We did not know about the costs: 200 baht for foreigners and 40 for Thais as well as a 20 baht... More

This was a truly amazing experience. I have lived in Thailand for several years but this was the first time I've been down to this area. It takes about 3.5 hours to get here from Bangkok. I recommend staying in the Sam Roi Yot beach area. (See my review of Lyndale Lodge.) Try to arrive at the park mid to... More

We are quite experienced hikers, yet after reading many dramatic reviews here on TA I was in doubts whether visiting this place is a good idea - especially as we were traveling with our 2 yo (in a babby carrier). Yet we did it and I must say it was absolutely fine and safe - quite demanding but not too... More

Quite the hike up to the top, but worth it! We took a boat from the ticket office and that is highly recommended.

This cave is impressive. Shouldn't miss this trip while in Hua Hin. Even after a tired hiking the view will leave you speechless....

Things I wish I knew before, but learned after... - The sun is best for photographs after 11AM, not 9AM, not 2PM. Time your visit. Bring wide angle lenses if you have them. Use a GoPro or something to make a cool time lapse as the sun moves across to illuminate the temple. I forgot mine... - Free for frugal... More

One of Thailand’s most beautiful and certainly the most photographed one is the Phraya Nakhon cave in Prachuap Khiri Khan province, about a 45 minutes drive South of Hua Hin. 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. As the... More

Be warned that if you are of below average fitness (as I am), this hike is TOUGH. Thais don't believe in evenly spaced, comfortable stairs of equal height - some of the steps were almost a foot high! Luckily there's plenty of rocks to hold onto to support yourself on the sides. I went with a group of quite fit... More

Lovely place in National Park. Great beaches, nice restaurant. You need to be fit for the climb up to the cave entrance & down in to the cave. It is spectacular, so worth the effort. Look out for the be-spectacled monkeys (Langur)
