It's not worth the trip. The three "pagodas" are quite insignificant; there are a few souvenir stands and most Thais who go there go only to cross the border into Burma for another rip-off market. Better to stop at one of the waterfalls on the way and return to Sangkhlaburi.

As we were nearby I chose to visit there. A high army presence but they were entirely friendly to me and my driver. The chance to stand on the place where the ancient invasion of Burma against Thailand took place was historically worthwhile. The change around now of the bustling and efficient Thailand against the divided and racially divided Myanmar... More

I've visited this area several times over the years as my wife and her family are Thai, they are able to walk (or drive) across the border but I need a visa which is available at the crossing. There are replicas of the three Pagodas on the Thai side of the crossing to show tourists what they are like, it's... More

The border crossing used to be a major crossing in/ out of Myanmar. It's a historic site as its believed that this is where Buddhism entered into Thailand from India . The site also marks the point where the Japanese death railway ended in Thailand. The visit here wont be long . A few snaps, a look through the small... More

We figured we weren't likely to get this close to the border again so we detoured from Sangkhlaburi and drove another 20 minutes to the border at Three Pagodas Pass. It's not really very exciting and if you do not have a Thai Passport you can't cross into Myanmar. We took a couple of photos, got back in the car... More

If you going to wooden mon bridge, on the way can stop by three pagodas. It's the border between Myanmar and Thailand. Outside the border lots of shops available for some shopping, you will see many products of Myanmar! That's the immigration border, if you want to visit Myanmar few tour agent available there too

I was a little disappointed with the Three Pagodas. I have a book with a description of a visit to the Pass in 1979. Then it was remote place difficult to reach. It is not like that today. The road there is excellent, It is just over 200 kms from Kachenaburi winding with many steep gradients but through spectacular scenery,... More

When you come to Sangklaburi the wooden bridge should not be the only thing to see. Make your trip more interesting and hire a boat for 400-500 THB and take a round trip to the 3 pagodas. It's worth to see and to climb the 63 steps to one of those three. You will feel like in a different world.

Three Pagoda Pass is the nearest western travellers can get to the peoples democratic repiblic of Myanmar. You can not go across the border but ypu can look across. The three pagoda stupa's are a little disappointing due to their small size. Usual aray of tourist offering.
