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.
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
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.
