I've seen these young ones on our way out in the Kanachanaburi Cemetery. They we're writing something..maybe they have some projects or assignments in school. I was hesitant to asked them as they were very serious of talking and writing things..So, I just assumed they're into something!
Rail trip on the "Death Railway"
Railway enthusiasts may travel along one of Southeast Asia's most historical tracks, namely the surviving stretch of the ‘Death Railway’, from the provincial capital to Namtok Railway Station near the Sai Yok Noi Waterfall. The winding track crosses the world famous bridge and provides a clear indication of how difficult constructing the original track (long since repaired and restored) must have been. One particularly exhilarating stretch sees the line parallel the curving Kwae Noi River on a wooden viaduct towering above the river and hugging a steep cave-ridden cliff.
Train Schedules & Fares Trains depart from Kanchanaburi Railway Station every day at 6.11 a.m., 11 p.m. and 4.35 p.m. to Nam Tok Railway Station. On return, trains leave Nam Tok station at 5.25 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3.15 p.m. Travelling time is about 2 hours. The fare is 17 baht.
Glad we didn't stay here
We had high hopes for this place, but there was no atmosphere. The music was rubbish, covers of Bryan Adams songs. The staff acted as if we were an inconvenience to them, I ended up doing their job for them when it came to paying the bill. Bad service. Food was okay. We originally were considering looking at this place for somewhere to stay. The guesthouse is laid out in such a way that you keep yourself to yourself. Much prefer the Jolly Frog. Don't come here
Floating Restaurant Along Kwai Noi River
Many Floating Restaurant found along the river, some restaurants situated permanently along the river line and some, floating along the river. The restaurants mainly provided by big resort s along the riverside. Last visiting, we had lunch in floating restaurant along the Kwai Noi River and after finished meal, they sent us at next tourist attraction so mainly all visitors take only one way as you can see in photo, another floating restaurant on the way back with only staff there.(The floating restaurant I took along the river provided by Sai Yok River View Resort)
Beautiful Jungle in Erawan
Erawan National Park is up the highway from Kanchanaburi, a beautiful respite set among the limestone hills. Named for the three-headed elephant god, Erawan is renowned for its aquamarine waterfalls, a set of 7 cascades that traverse the park. Each has its own pool associated with it, and is very tranquil. The water is warm, a perfect place to lie in the sun or splash around. (Beware the little fishies, they like to nibble... nothing painful, just funny feeling.)
The forest abounds with beautiful jungle vegetation and animals. The majority of it is mixed deciduous forest. Numerous species inhabit the area, including pythons, pheasants, flying squirrels, and even the Indian elephant. Don't get your hopes up, they are very rare in the park and not usually seen. There are often monkeys, though, playing through the trees and branches. There are also several caves around the area, due to the porosity of the limestone bedrock. They are fun to explore. Check out Phrathat, Mi, Wang Badan, Ruea, or Ta Duang caves scattered throughout the national park.
Many tours can be scheduled from Kanchanaburi, or you can rent a bike and head up the highway to explore it on your own. Bring a lunch and a camera and a swimsuit, and enjoy your time in the beautiful park.
