Must-visits in Kanchanaburi

River Kwai Bridge Kanchanaburi

River Kwai Bridge

สะพานข้ามแม่น้ำแคว
My opinion :
or Death Railway Bridge which reputation comes from the movie The Bridge over the Kwai River
Erawan National Park Kanchanaburi

Erawan National Park

สวนชาติเอราวัณ
My opinion :
with its magnificent waterfalls, it is one of the most beautiful national parks in Thailand. Probably the most beautiful one.
Wat Tham Sua Kanchanaburi

Wat Tham Sua

วัดถ้ำเสือ
My opinion :
Temple on a small hill located about twenty kilometers from Kanchanaburi, it has a gigantic Buddha and offers a 360 degrees view over the countryside
Death Railway Kanchanaburi
My opinion :
Train line from Thonburi (Bangkok) to Nam Tok, sadly famous for the conditions of its construction during World War II
Wat Ban Tham Kanchanaburi

Wat Ban Tham

วัดบ้านถ้ำ
My opinion :
or Dragon Temple with its big stairs leading to a big dragon mouth
Elephant Haven Kanchanaburi
My opinion :
It is one of the elephant sanctuaries in Thailand where tou can be sure that the animals are very well treated and pampered. Here, no elephant ride, no shows, tricks nor tours, no bullhook (sticks ended with a sharp hook), no chain... You get a respectful meeting with the elephants of Thailand.
