8 Bird’s Nest Cave on Phi Phi Ley, Thailand

The Chinese consider soup made from a swiftlet nest to be an aphrodisiac and medicinal so Thais have built this bamboo scaffolding at Viking Cave to harvest the high-priced delicacies. Colonies of these small birds, which resemble swallows, breed in this cliff on Phi Phi Ley and make their nests from saliva. These fragile platforms are carefully guarded 24/7.
