Sprawling along the Myanmar border, Kanchanaburi Province encompasses dense jungles, stunning waterfalls and two ancient Khmer temples. It’s renowned for the Bridge on the River Kwai and the Thai-Burma “Death Railway”.
Walk across the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai, which formed part of the Thai-Burma “Death Railway”. At its northern edge lies the JEATH War Museum where you can gain insight into the conditions endured by Allied POWs and Asian labourers in a palm hut modelled on the buildings in which they would have slept.
Don’t miss the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre, where the exhibits detail the railway’s construction. After exploring the “Death Railway” museums, pay your respects to the thousands of Allied POWs at the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery.
Visit the stunning Erawan Falls to enjoy its shaded picnic areas and swimming hole at the base of its seven-tiered cascade. Equally as beautiful is Sai Yok Noi Falls, which tumbles 15 metres over a high limestone crag in a forested valley.
Nearby lies the Prasat Muang Singh Historical Park, which protects the remains of two Khmer temples dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries. Admire the Bayon-style architecture of the main temple and its central prang, then visit the small museum displaying artefacts and Buddha images uncovered at the site.
