We visited Erawan falls in April so it was hot and there wasn't too much water going over the falls, but enough to make it interesting. We went with two six year olds. We had a good, inexpensive lunch at one of the restaurants located near the entrance to the falls. Overall, the falls are well worth seeing and swimming... More

We took a bus from Kanchanaburi that left at 8 am- our Guesthouse owner explained which one, and it was easy to flag down from the side of the road. Takes about an hour and 3/4 to get up there. We went in April so it was HOT walking-take water. You don't need boots, but we were glad to be... More

Beautiful park, great climbs, well worth a visit. We managed until the last level (7) even with two small kids. Make sure you are there as early as possible, but latest at 9, as later there are lots of tourists and the atmosphere is not as peaceful as in the morning. Also it's cooler and easier to walk then. Bring... More

Had a lovely day at Erawan Waterfall. One of the "must see" things in Kanchanaburi. The waterfall hase seven levels, the first 4 are easy to get up to along the path but after that gets a little tricky walking up if you've got young kids. Best thing to do is leave them with Mum swimming in the shallow ,pools... More

Beautiful waterfalls. Should go to the seventh waterfall. Do not forget to put your feet in the water and get a fish spa!

Nice trek to do, but a little bit too crowded. Pools are full of skin-eating fishes, which can seems fun but it's in fact really hard to stay in the water (try the fish foot massage in Kao San road before, and imagine that in all your body, with bigger fishes). Be careful of snakes and monkeys

If you don't want to pay too much to get there, take the bus at 8am from Kanchanaburi bus station, you will arrive there at about 9.45. After a 10mn walk you arrive to the first level. The number 3 is the first interesting one in the middle of the jungle. Monkeys appeared at number 5 trying to still some... More
