Only two hours from Bangkok, Kanchanaburi is accessible by road or rail, the latter of which includes sightseeing day trips that run on weekends and public holidays. These weekend special trains are reasonably priced and make hassle-free and enjoyable adventures. Even the climate of Kanchanaburi, cooled by the altitude, forest, and Rivers, is a welcome respite from the heat and congestion of the nearby capital city.
Kanchanaburi city, located at the point where the Khwae Noi and Khwae Yai rivers meet and form the Mae Klong River, is a popular resort town. Picturesque and worthy of a visit in its own right, it is frequently visited as base of operations for exploring the many cultural, natural, and Historical attractions in the surrounding countryside. Located at the confluence of the Kwae Noi and Kwae Yai rivers, Kanchanaburi lies at the source of the Mae Klong River, and these majestic bodies of water are defining characteristics of the town.
The town itself is a place to relax, watching the water from the banks of the river, inside a raft house, or from a riverside Restaurant. Many visitors like to rest along the river with a cold drink and a good book. Many of them come here just for a couple of days but stay for weeks in order to explore all of the attractions in the surrounding countryside. Along with visiting spectacular waterfalls, lush forest, and three of Thailand’s largest reservoirs, white water Rafting, elephant Trekking, and golfing are popular activities for visitors. Kanchanaburi is an excellent tourist destination for nature lovers.
