place to stay

by chris5153

i am staying 2 nights in Kanchanaburi in february. can i just turn up & get a good deal on a guesthouse or should i book ahead. i hear apple guesthouse is recommended would i have to book ahead at this place

RE: place to stay

by NoomNoi

If you stay during weekends or long holidays (11-13 Feb), I would recommend you to book the accommodation ahead.

kanchanaburi has lot's of guest houses and you can generally always find a place.
when i was there is stayed in a couple of very cheap guesthouses.
i quite liked c&c guesthouse and it was also very cheap at only 60 baht per night for a single room.

I stayed at the Jolly Frog, and I liked it a lot. It's right by the river, not the floating rooms, but it's very cosy. It's got a nice lawn by the river where you can relax. I heard that Apple GH is also good, but you definitely need to book ahead.

the jolly frog is also good if you wanna practise your hebrew.
it's one of the main hangout for istaeli backpackers in thailand.

cachaseiro: is that true? I met only a couple of Isralis while I was there.

RE: RE: place to stay

by cachaseiro

it might have something to do with the time a year you are there.
i was there in november and there were at least 100 israelis staying there at that time.

The VN Guesthouse is lovely. Clean air con rooms, or fan floatinf raft rooms. Good value and the pineapple pancakes are ace!

TIP: Don't eat at The Apple Guesthouse I had two meals there, both of whcih were edible, but the service was awaful, food was late or didn't turn up and they were very laissez fare, if you ask me the recommendation in the Lonely Planet has sent them downhill.

Travel Tips for Kanchanaburi

Where's the best place to meet other farangs

by astro_kerryn

...........................or are they best avoided?
The best place is along the main guest house road leading to the bridge, here they will gather at the local bars like "Bernes" and "No name bar" to drink, play pool etc..but it's easy to avoid all westerner's by going to the numerous Thai establishments. In other words : Kanch is big enough to be enjoyed by all without stepping on anyone's toes.

Western Thailand nature tourism

by Aphro

If visiting tourist trail of Kanchanaburi, get the bus north to Thon Pha Phum (3 hours approx & 35 bht approx) for an area of forested (and some deforested) mountains on the Burma border. You can also visit hill tribe villages.
National parks offer opportunities for either camping or trekking along nature trails. Camping facilities with cold running water and simple toilet facilities, are available at Chaloem Rattanakosin, Sai Yok and Erawan national parks. Trekking along either well-defined waterfall trails, or nature trails, to visit caves or appreciate local flora and fauna, is a popular activity.
Erawan waterfall can get busy, as can Sai Yok Noi & Sai Yok Yai but they are beautiful.
4x4 and elephant tours in and along streams/rivers to reach remote waterfalls and more rugged areas are great fun too.
There is much wildlife but it is shy and/or nocturnal and you aren't likely to see much of it other than great birds, insects and flora.

"Get sh*t faced on a shoe string"!

by Willettsworld about No Name Bar

This is one of many bars along the road that goes from the Allied War Cemetery to the Bridge over the River Kwai. It has the slogan "Get sh*t faced on a shoe string" painted high-up on the outside so as to entice the large number of backpackers that come here. I came here to eat one evening and had a very good Thai green chicken curry which I recommend plus, of course, a beer! There are more "hostess" bars along the bend of the road near the cemetery.

Feed the tigers!

by paula_p

Tiger Temple - This was amazing. Feed the tigers right out of your hand. I could feel its teeth and tongue and I almost freaked out. The tigers aren't tied up but are very tame (or heavily sedated). Buddhist monks took these tigers in when the gov't said that all private owners had to give up their pet tigers. The cost is 120 BHT + 150 BHT donation. Help them out... there are a bunch of animals there that these guys are taking care of.

I highly recommend that you put this on the list of things to see.

Hellfire Pass Museum

by nattybabe

Hellfire pass museum is a must see while in Kanchanaburi. Yes, it is a little bit depressing but it is important to know the history of the area which also affected many other Nationalities. As an Australian I was drawn to the area where so many Australians had died in the Second World War. The Museum was opened in the 1990's by an Australian who wanted to let the world know what the POW's went through. With free entry the museum is extremely well done. It portrays an unbiased view of what actually happened and displays original photos and documents from the Second World War.

We got lost in the past there and were surprised that we actually spent 3 hours in there! If you go to Hellfire pass, don't just do the walk, check out the museum as well.

There is an audio guide for both the museum and the walk. It is definitely worth getting. All you need is some ID and some money to leave as a deposit. It has loads of useful information as well as first hand accounts from POW's.
