This cave has been used by hundreds of people to escape the atrocities of war. Many stayed in here during the Vietnam war. The cave is easy enough to visit, just walk up the steps and wander in. The walkways are concrete and the lighting...More

Beautiful setting along the riverside and steep set of steps deliver you to the cave entrance. Once inside, the walkways are all concrete, with lighting along the way. Ok to view but not the most beautiful or exciting cave in the area.

The orange bridge gave nice photos. After crossing it, we walked on a very nice green grass area. Saw blue water with small bridges for people to pose for photos. Water was so clear. We didn't climb up the cave as we thought it was...More

Whilst visiting Tham Chang we were reluctant to pay the 15,000 kip per person to enter the cave, however I am glad we did! The cave was spectacular, lots of different walkways, lighting was good enough that you could see but still left it fairly...More

We walked from town, it took about 30mins. Very easy walk there. It costs 2000 to get through the gate and an additional 15000 to go to the caves. If you just want to go for a swim (a good alternative to blue lagoons if...More

It's a really pretty walk to this cave, beautiful resort gardens and a nicely developed water area at the foot of the steps to the caves. This is an easier cave than most to visit. Stairs are an OK climb and there are well developed...More

The Tham Chang cave is approached via the red suspension bridge. One arrives in a park and at the entrance there are several food stalls. The gardens are beautiful with lovely water features and bridges. There are washrooms (bring tissues and handwash) but no washbasins....More

We walked to this cave from our hotel via the little orange bridge which is quite scenic. The cave is quite a few steps up, but once you are in, the caverns are big and not claustrophobic like some. Some of the stalactites / stalagmites...More

Climbing the stairs over the Orange Bridge I had no idea what to expect. The caves were lit up with stairs easily set in to allow you to walk around and discover them. Really quite amazing inside. Worth a walk through.
