Phra Nang (Princess) Cave, Railay

The cave above is one of the more unusual sights in Railay…


What’s amazing about Thailand is how ancient practices blend with the present from animistic to ritualistic. There are fresh flowers and incense is burning in this cave.

In my Chiang Dao cave adventure, our native guide stopped to kneel at the shrine of the hermit who had died in the cave generations ago. And there too, fresh flowers and food offerings.
