The amount of things to see in Hpa-An are limited and not far away. So check this cave out! But it won’t be the best cave you see. That being said the carvings and statues are a sight to see

Nothing very special, it's quite small. We spent barely 5 minutes inside. We expected it to be bigger and impressive.
