I went into the first one, which isn't very deep - more of a grotto than a cave, really - but didn't climb up to a higher, deeper one. The interesting thing about this one, apart from the view over the river, is that it is full of Buddha statues, and functions as a buddhist temple. I enjoyed watching a member of our group get her fortune told after shaking something like I-Ching sticks to get a number, but I didn't do it myself as I would have been annoyed if it had told me something I didn't like (no matter how much I say I don't believe these things)!
