Tham khao Yoi temple next to the cave is a must !! All in wood. It is just beautiful. The monks are very welcoming and helpful. Need to take the time to visit !!
A visiter sans hesiter, le temple tout en bois est magnifique et les moines tres acceuillants.

Chinese New Year trip

A temple inside a cave with a big Buddha statue. Outside is full of monkeys, but monkeys here are starving because people are scared to give them food. Monkeys near the cave temple are big monkeys that are not so afraid of people, they could steal food from you if they see it. However, the smaller ones, babies, pregnant ones and one with tiny baby hanging to it would all be around the toilet area. (Toilet here is clean!) These group of monkeys are not aggressive and are afraid of people. There’s a guy who sell corns in basket. If the monkey sees you coming with the food they would come surround you. The most they did to me was touch my legs. It was nice seeing them happy. Ps. Don’t forget to throw to the far ones too.

Worth a short stop

Khao Yoi is a rocky crag standing on its own just east of the main Petchkasem Road (the Bangkok highway to S Thailand) about 20 km North of Petchaburi town. I think it’s between the 130 and 135 km markers but it’s fairly easy to recognise as there’s nothing similar on that side of the road. It’s down a short lane to the left just past a Shell station if you are going South.

The main attraction apart from monkeys is the cave temple inside the rock. A series of progressively smaller and smellier (bats!) caves down into the rock, each rather surprisingly decorated like a temple building with shrines to the Buddha and holy men. It’s not heavily touristed, especially on weekdays.
There are undecorated caves a little further up but take care of your footing

There are many places to eat and of course buy souvenir snacks (a regional speciality) in the village. Be very careful crossing the highway though!
The Bangkok - Petchburi public minibuses stop in Khao Yoi if you ask the driver. Make sure you find out where to wait for the next minibus though so you can carry on your journey later. Otherwise, a car is of course easier
