Staying at River Kwai Jungle Rafts Floatel in Kanchanaburi province

Accommodation in Thailand

In July 2015 I did stay at The River Kwai Jungle Rafts, a simple accommodation but at a more as stunning location floating on the Kwai Noi River about 70 km north of Kanchanaburi town. After a 20-min boat trip in a long-tail boat you arrive at the wooden & bamboo floating hotel. The rooms are simple and basic but clean and the beds are comfortable. All rooms have a private bathroom with shower. But .... no electricity, no internet, no telephone signal .... and no warm water! Back to the basics of life .... and I loved it! Just sit, relax and enjoy the great hospitality of the Mon people working at this hotel. We stayed for 2 days and breakfast, lunch and dinner was all good (Thai food only). It is a great place to just relax, swim in the river and visit the nearby Mon Village. Web-site : River Kwai Jungle Rafts KAN

I loved it but I have some recommendations :
  • Take a flash light with you
  • If there is special food / drink you like ... buy it at the last 7/11 at Sai Yok Noi

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
