Traveling in Kanchanaburi province

Traveling in Thailand

This is part 10 of the 48 (out of the 77) of all the provinces in Thailand I have stayed at least 1 night.  Kanchanaburi province is on the west-side of Central Thailand and bordering Myanmar. Kanchanaburi province is famous for the Bridge over the River Kwai, the infamous Death Railway and the Erawan Waterfalls. The capital town is of course Kanchanaburi town and can be reached by car, motorbike, bus or train.

Personally I did visit Kanchanaburi for the first time in 1998 and of course we did stay in a guesthouse along the Kwai River, walked over the Bridge over the River Kwai, visited the original War Museum, visited the War Cemetery in town, walked the Hell-Fire pass, made a train ride along the Kwai River and did swim at Sai Yok Noi Waterfall. In the years following I would return many times and also visit the famous Erawan Waterfalls and stay at the famous Jungle Rafts Flotel (highly recommended). But besides the area of Kanchanaburi town, the province has much more to offer. When living in Bangkok we did visit 2 times the beautiful Sangkhlaburi along a huge lake with Thailands longest Wooden Bridge. And of course the Tree Pagoda Pass on the border of Thailand and Myanmar. Another province that I should explore more!

It all began 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!
