    River-front accomodation at a good price!


    This guest house is a great time for those traveling to Kanchanaburi. It is located right on the River Kwae, and the majority of the rooms are built right over the river on rafts. While some rooms had gaps in the floorboards which would seem to allow mosquitoes in, it didn't seem to be very buggy at all. The restaurant that is coupled with the guest house serves delicious Thai food, and great breakfasts!! It was a very pleasurable stay.

    Unique Quality: The people who run Sam's are very friendly and helpful in finding treks, restaurants, transportation, and other traveler aid. Looking out over the river in the evening beautiful. You can even watch the bats emerge, flying low over the water as they skim the insects from the surface.

    Directions: Head west of the train station, and you'll find Oil Heep Rd. Continue along till you see the guest house.

    The most chill place.


    Floating cabins right on the River Kwai. The rooms were clean, cute, no complaints at all. It only cost 300 BHT a night and we had air con and hot shower. The views were phenomenal - from our room and from the restaurant up top. The food was great and the service was awesome. It seems like a little out of the way, but it's close to the "downtown" and super close to the War Museum and Memorial.

    I highly recommend this place.

    Unique Quality: So chill. So quiet. Amazing view.

    Directions: When you get off the bus in Kanchanaburi, there will be guys with bikes waiting to take you places, just ask around. We actually ignored this guy at first, I'm so glad he was persistent!
