Easy walk from city centre or hire a bike relaxing spot away from the mad backpacker crowd. The walk up the stairs to the caves is invigorating

Neither Blue nor a Lagoon This is a glorified swimming hole with a Zip Line and Buddhist Shrine in a cave, and row after row of souvenir shops. The "Lagoon" is a river that flows along the base of a cliff, that has dammed and...More
