Lub Lae Cave
Lub Lae Cave, a 30-minute attraction from Hua Hin, is an iconic cave filled with marks of culture and tradition.
To reach the cave, you just need to follow the signs, head up a rock track and arrive at a small open hall with tables and chairs on it. As you arrive in the place, you’ll not see any boards or tarps of activities you can do and how much you’ll pay for, instead you’ll see a monk carrying some torches who will be your guide. A few steps after the entrance on the cave you will see a statue of Buddha, a lot of rock formations, stalactites, and stalagmites that will all fill your vision. Be careful of bats – they aren’t always very friendly.
Once out, the monks who guided you inside the cave will take back the torches and offer you water to drink. They don’t collect any fee but be sure to still give some donations before you leave.
Lub Lae Cave is located in Nong Phlap, Hua Hin District.
