Kien Luong District in Ha Tien in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang in the Gulf of Thailand is famous for its stunning landscapes such as Mui Nai Beach, Thon Van Stone Cave and Chong Islet, and for its many historical and cultural relics.

Crocodile-shaped-caveBut there is another place of interest which tourists should drop by when they are in Kien Luong; that is the fossilized Hang Ca Sau (crocodile-shaped cave).

From Hon T-junction, about five kilometers from Kien Luong town, tourists turn left and travel about 18 kilometers in the direction towards Hang Pagoda-Phu Tu Islet tourism site in Binh An Commune. Halfway there, they will see a complex of low limestone mounts which include one where the cave is located.

There are signs indicating the mount was fossilized millions of years ago. The cave has sloping holes that are connected. Seen from afar, the cave looks like a giant crocodile that opens its mouth.
