In A Day?

by TaniaBeard

I have one day to travel from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi & return. We arrive in Bangkok at 0910 (via train from Ayuthaya) and would catch the next available bus to Kanchanaburi & would like to see:
Thailand Burma Railway Centre Museum
Kanchanaburi Allied War Cemetary
Kwai River Bridge
World War II Museum
Jeath War Museum
Tiger Temple
Is all this do able or are there places you suggest over the others? What it the best way to see all this in the time that we have?
I understand the last bus runs back to Bangkok at 8pm however we have a train to catch at 1050pm from Bangkok to Surat Thani so would need to leave Kanchanaburi by I'd say 6.30pm at the latest?
Thank you for your help!!

It would be a push but if you hired a driver at Kanchanaburi you might just get quick visits in at all places. Most are close together.

The Tiger temple is about 30 min's out of town from memory, and you would need at least 45 min there depending on the crowd and if you want to touch the tigers, so that would be a bit of time taken up.

Be careful of bus timetables, we didn't have problems - except that we got on the wrong bus heading back to Bangkok and ended up at the Southern bus station instead of the northern so a hassle then to get to where we neeed to be. The bus was very slow once it hit the city traffic too.

Have a good day

That seems to be a lot for a day! Im afraid that with the traffic and all you might not get to see it all. Best you narrow it down to 2 or 3 so you wont be dissapointed

Re: In A Day?

by switzerlandman

i think it's not possible in one day.
you need the bus from bangkok ( southern- bus station) .
Train station-southern bus station 1 houre )
the bus from southern-bus station to kanchanabury (start all 20 minutes.)2.1/2 -3 hour .
you arrive in kanchanbury 1-2 pm
to the river quai bridge is a privat taxi faster. (stop for one houre)
next to the tiger temple .
you can touch the tigers betwen 3 and 5 pm.
back to kanchanabury ( bus station)
d'ont go back to bangkok
go to nakhon-pathom.
the train from bangkok to the south stop in nakhon- pathom

Thank you very much for all your help! I didn't consider the south/north bus station situation with any of my planned itinerary, so I will have to do a bit more research!

I think I will narrow it down to three things to do and hope for the best in fitting them in...

Many thanks once again!

Re: In A Day?

Ok I have been working on my itinerary and was wondering if I catch the 0719 train from Ayuthaya to Bangkok (arriving 0910) I can then transfer from Hualamphong Station to the Southern Bus Terminal*
* Is it better to transfer by train for this to Thonburi Station from Hualamphong or catch a bus or taxi? (Aparently the southern bus terminal is next to the train station?)
When I get to the southern bus terminal I will catch a bus to Kanchanaburi. I will then go to Bridge of River Kwai & Tiger Temple (hopefully more if time permits)
At approx 6pm I will leave Kanchanaburi & catch a bus to Nakhon Pathom*
* How long does this trip take?
As I would then like to catch the 8.54pm train to Surat Thani

I look forward to hearing your advise.

This is not directly related to your question, but I think this report from Care for the Wild International is worthwhile to have a look before you visit the Tiger Temple. http://www.careforthewild.org/default_detail.asp?detail=true&I_ID=578§ion=Home

Travel Tips for Kanchanaburi

Beautiful views down by the river

by herzog63

The area around Kanchanaburi is quite mountainous so there are so many wonderful veiws. There are many waterfalls in the area too. They are best seen during the rainy season. I have been to many of them but there has never been much water in them on my visits. I have never been to Thailand during the rainy season.

Attempt to walk the Death Railway Trail

by genie47

Only attempt this if you are staying at Hin Tok River Camp @ Hellfire Pass. The trail is just outside the camp. There are two ways of getting up to the trail. The moment you walk out the camp's main gate, cross the field and over the barbed wire fence. There are bamboo railings that help you go up to the trail. Incidently the trail is where the Death Railway stood before it is torn up after the war.

The other way is to turn left after the main gate, walk along the road and take the first turn right into this banana plantation. You will walk past temple of sorts with a rather large seated Buddha. Climb up the knoll. There are no bamboo railings and it will be tough.

Bring lots of insect repellant but I don't think it will work. Your sweat will wash it all off. It is that tough and makes you realize how these men actually found the courage to go through it in those dark times. The trail is around 4.5km long and will take you through from the Compressor Cutting to Hellfire Pass itself.

The map of the route can be found on the official website of Hin Tok River Camp @Hellfire Pass and this direct link Office of Australian War Graves site. On this map, Hin Tok River Camp is at the lower bend of the curve of Kwai Noi river.

If you are lucky, you may find some war relics. Helmets, broken tools and hopefully not unexploded ordnance. ;>

Bus from Bangkok

by Willettsworld

BKS public buses (line 81) leave from Bangkok's Southern Bus Terminal (Sai Tai Taling Chan). In Kanchanaburi, there are two separate but nearby bus terminals, with 1st class buses departing from an office off Thanon Saengchuto, and 2nd class buses from the larger terminal one block east.

1st class buses should leave Bangkok every 15 minutes from 05:00 to 22:30, take about 2 hours, and cost 106 baht, including a bottle of water.

Arrive at the Bridge James Bond Style

by thedouglas

These fast little boats can be hired either at the bridge or at the museum, for the excitingly fast ride in the James Bond tradition, from either destination. Just a short trip, but worth the adrenalin rush!

Allied War Cemetary

by Jez79

In addition to being an interesting destination in itself, Kanchanaburi has a significance for some Westerners because of its role in World War 2. The Allied War Cemetary is one of two in Kanchanaburi, and is located in the north of the town. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the area very peaceful. The Australian plaques are at the front left, the Dutch behind that, and other Allied nations on the right. I wouldn't necessarily say this is a must see activity, and it certainly won't be for everyone. We found it a good way to acknowledge the huge sacrafices many of the soldiers made in the war.
