Khao Yoi Cave Temple, Ratchaburi Province, Thailand.

Khao Yoi is a rocky mountainous region standing on its own just east of the town of Ratchaburi. It's down a short lane to the left just past a Shell station if you are going South and the Mae Luan rice and curry restaurant. The main attraction apart from monkeys is the cave temple inside the caves in these very high rock faces and a  rather surprisingly well decorated  temple building with shrines ( within the caves ) . It's not heavily visited during the week days.There are undecorated caves a little further up but take care of your footing and the steep climb is exhausting in the fierce heat. There are many places to eat and of course buy souvenirs and snacks in the village. The Bangkok - Petchaburi public minibuses will 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 or taxi is of course much easier.
