After paying the entrance fee and climbing in the songtaew taking you to a staircase of twenty steps leading to the entrance of the cave, you will quickly arrive in the first room where a big sitting Buddha and a lot of other smaller statues stand blow a skylight where sometimes sunbeams venture making the scene very photogenic. Further on the left before the small porch of the second room, a reclining Buddha follows a Fat Buddha image. The second room has many statues and also a skylight. Then a set og galleries and a staircase leading outside (when we were there, the top was blocked). You will be as well impressed by the immensity of the cave as by its opening to the sky and statues.
