About Travel to Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi is a popular tourist destination often visited as a day trip from Bangkok, however, the town is a pleasant place to stay and a good starting point for visiting other points of interest in the area. The part of Kanachanaburi that appeals most to visitors is the area by the scenic Khwae Yai River. The road which runs alongside, the Khwae River Road, is where most of the town’s tourist hotels, restaurants and bars are located, and at the top is the famous railway bridge which was the subject of the film, Bridge over the River Kwai.

Only the central part of the bridge, which as built by prisoners of war captured by Japanese Armed Force, was destroyed during World War II. Only 2 trains a day run over the bridge in either directions and for the rest of time its open for pedestrians to walk across and enjoy the views up and down the river. Kanchanaburi also has a number of cemeteries for Allied Soldiers who died in and around Kanchanaburi during the war, as well as some small privately funded museums telling the history of the prisoners and other forced labourers who worked on the bridge and the railway line.

Kanchanaburi Province has lots of points of interest, many of which can be accessed fairy cheaply by bus from Kanchanaburi Bus Terminal. The easiest two to reach are the Erawan National Park, famous for it 7 tiered waterfall, and Sangkhlaburi, which has a long wooden bridge built by the local people to connect the two halves of the town. Its more than 4 hours by minivan from Kanchanaburi to Sangkhlaburi but well worth the trip.

Other destinations worth visiting include the massive Sinakharin Lake and the Khao Laem National Park, although these are more difficult to reach, and travel around, by public transport so you would need to hire your own motorbike or car to make the most of a visit.
