Went to this place few years back with a friend when staying in Hua Hin (found the place on a map and wanted to explore it). Did not regret the effort to drive up all the way from Hua Hin to the 'Cave', which in my opinion is more a real spiritual place than anything else - and I liked it a lot !
We arrived in the late afternoon (almost at closing time), however, the daughter of the banana and drink seller near the entrance was nice enough to bring us down and around the huge caves.
On the way there we fed the waiting monkeys with the bananas, we bought from her father at the entrance and that way we could enter without being followed al the time by monkey hordes.
Arriving down there in the first cave (and it was empty, except us, due to the late arrival) it became a extreme calming and spiritual place, you were surrounded by plenty of Buddha statues in different shapes and sizes - and with different meanings - one of the biggest one is the reclining Buddha. As you stroll around in the different caves, seeing once in awhile daylight from above through some holes in the ceiling of the caves, you can feel the cool air as well as the quietness which automatically lets you forget, at least for the moment, the hustle and bustle of the outside world. The statues and the entire place are all well maintained.
Would always make a trip to this place again if in the Phetchaburi area. We tipped he daughter and we paid for the bananas but it was not expensive at all !
