Caves You Must Not Visit in Thailand during the Rainy Season

Caves are the products of nature which are formed through historical precipitation and time changes. The stalagmites, stalactites, stone pillars, grottoes and waterfalls in the cave are mysterious and desirable! Going to cave exploration is an activity to appreciate the wonders and have a relax, but there are dangers hidden in the beautiful caves. Especially during the rainy season, you cannot go to the following caves during your travel in Thailand:

Maeusu Cave

Maeusu Cave is a huge limestone cave that is located in Mae Moe National Park, Tak. The Maeusu River flows through the mouth of the cave, then surrounds the cave, and finally flows into the Wadi Moi. There are 3 grottoes in the cave with many beautiful stalagmites and stalactites. During the day, the sun shines on the sandstone through the cave mouth, making it very shining and very beautiful. Maeusu Cave is only open during the cool and hot seasons, that is, from December to April of the following year. The water level in the cave increases during the rainy season, making it unsuitable for play.

Kaew Komol cave

Kaew Komol cave is considered to be one of the most beautiful caves in Thailand and one of the calcite crystal caves. There are only three calcite crystal caves in the world. Kaew Komol Cave is a closed cave with only one entrance and it is very hot inside. There are 5 holes inside the cave, each with beautiful calcite crystals, and it is pure white like snowflakes. There are also strange-shaped stalagmites and stalactites. Kaew Komol Cave is open to visitors from 08:30-16:30 every day, and it is closed during the rainy season from June to September.

Exploring caves has a unique charm, which can give people a sense of mystery, freshness and excitement. In the rainy season, the water level in the cave rises and there are many dangers. People who visit Thailand should pay attention to safety!

Ayutthaya SAY Gallery Café

SAY Gallery is located diagonally opposite the most famous Wat Maha That in Ayutthaya. This is a super large-scale gallery cafe. In the most core area of Ayutthaya, the Say Gallery team integrated the four old townhouses which faced the street, while preserving the basic building structure, and they used dark floors and cement walls to create a contemporary rest space.

If you are not interested in art, it is also a good decision to taste food at SAY Gallery. The signature Smoothie is added with traditional sugar shreds, any one is very beautiful, and the creative sugar shreds spring rolls are not only good-looking, they are perfect with ice cream. The beef noodle soup is clear and tender, with good color and taste. Most of the menu is available for 100 baht. Finding a good place to sit and appreciate the Wat Mahathat is definitely one of the most serious decisions in the afternoon.

If you are interested, Ayutthaya Retreat is also a good choice. Ayutthaya Retreat is the standard configuration of a large Thai home. The lotus pond is the courtyard feature, which is perfectly matched with the two-story traditional teak wood house. The design of the dwellings in the courtyard is even more eye-catching. A tree grows from the inside of the house to the outside. The sparse sunlight through the treetops scattered on the rustic furniture and mottled red walls makes people intoxicated. The Ayutthaya Retreat restaurant is very large, like a large antique furniture store. It is very relaxing to enjoy the food while enjoying the scenery here.
