Caves in Thailand

Thailand is a country that is so geographically and biologically rich with natural attractions scattered across the country. The country also has some beautiful naturally formed caves that are breath-taking.


Here is the list of 5 Caves in Thailand

1. Tham Phra Nang Cave, Rai-leh


This is an interesting cave with large wooden phalluses. Also known as the Princess Cave or penis cave, this is named after the Phra Nang princess. Here, the fishermen and other visitors make offerings to the symbolic phallus of Shiva to help with fertility. They also believe that the sea-princess will help them bring good results in fishing.
