Getting to Kanchanaburi
Kanchanaburi, known for the Bridge over the River Kwai, is the town to be in if you want to explore Thailand's wild west. Presently the town is bustling and alive but the many war museums and cemeteries take you back to the darker times. The historical museums and cemeteries depict the events of World War II. On the other hand, the lively national parks and roaring waterfalls can be explored by train or by rafting tours. For in-town attractions, one can rent a motor bike or bicycle. The streets of Kanchanaburi are a 10-minute walk away from the train station. Most accommodation is on or around the river and is available at various price ranges.
