Phraya Nakhon Cave is in Kui Buri District. It is managed by Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. It is about 500 meters from Laem Sala beach and approximately 17 kilometers north of Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. Tourists can go to the cave by renting a boat or by walking across Tian Mountain. After that, there is a climb up the mountain about 430 meters to reach Phraya Nakhon Cave. There is a water well at the foot of the mountain known as Phraya Nakhon Well. It is made of baked clay bricks in a trapezoidal shape. Phraya Nakhon is a large cave which has a hole in the ceiling allowing sunlight to penetrate. At the top of the hole, there is a stone bridge known as "death bridge" because many wild animals have fallen to their deaths from it. Many kings of Thailand have come to see this cave and left evidence of their visit. The outstanding feature of Phraya Nakhon Cave is the "throne", a historic site built during King Rama V's (King Chulalongkorn) reign. The best time to see the throne is between 10:30 - 11:30 as the sun shines on the throne at that time. The throne has since become the symbol of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. Later kings also visited the cave. For the visit of King Chulalongkorn in 1890, the Kuha Karuhas pavilion was built inside the cave. Later, King Vajiravudh, as well as King Bhumibol Adulyadej visited the cave. The cave can be visited but requires a bit of legwork to reach it. The hike takes roughly 30 minutes.
Wat Tan Chet Yot is a life-like image of Somdet Phra Phutthachan (To Phrommarangsi), measuring 11 m. across the lap and 18 m. high, considered to be his largest cast image in the world. In front of this image, there are life-size statues of several other revered monk masters; such as, Phra Achan Man, Luangpu Thuat, Luangpu Suk, Luangpu Sot, and also Buddha images. Wat Tan Chet Yot is located in Salalai Sub-district and was named after the village Tan Chet Yot, whose name derived from the fact that there used to be a toddy palm tree or Tan with 7 tops-Chet Yot, which was cut during the construction of the southern railway line before 1957. The temple’s landscape has been improved to be shady and have a relaxing atmosphere to welcome visitors.
Framed by a vast expanse of limestone peaks, a long wooden walkway leads over mirror-like water where reeds and lotuses mix with fish and the colourful birds that feast on them. The freshwater wetlands known as Thung Sam Roi Yot should not be missed. Only a few places in Thailand are as peaceful as this beautiful place.
Thailand is a diverse country with many different types of destinations, though the nation is probably best known for its beaches. And why not? Some of the most beautiful and fun-filled stretches of sand in the world are located here. So even though most people have access to plenty of beaches closer to home, they still choose to fly for 12-15 hours – or longer – just to see Thailand’s sands. But when you live here? It is like paradise - This spot is popular with expats and long term travelers, as it’s quieter than other beaches.
Located in coast of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province, it is the first marine national park of Thailand. Khao Sam Roi Yot means "The mountain with three hundred peaks" and refers to a series of limestone hills along the Gulf of Thailand with highest one at 605m above the sea level. The northwest corner of the mountain range is called Thung Sam Roi Yot and is mainly freshwater marsh covering nearly 37% of the national park which makes it the largest wetlands area in Thailand.
The inaccessible forest areas on the mountains are home to some mammals such as dusky leaf monkey, crab-eating macaque, Malayan porcupine, mainland serow, slow loris, barking deer, fishing cat and Malayan pangolin. Dolphins are regularly seen on the coastline, although not guaranteed there is a good chance to spot some by boat trips that can be arranged form most hotels. Occationally Irrawaddy dolphins shows up near the coast. The wild elephant watching area in nearby Kui Buri National Park is approximately 45km from the Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park headquarters, which is the best place in Thailand to see herd of elephants and gaurs. The English speaking owner of Stella Resort does personally drive his customers to Kui Buri National Park on availability. The impressive Pala-U Waterfalls located in south side of the Kaeng Krachan National Park is also easily accessible.
