    This outing was nothing short of fantastic! Everyone in our group put this experience at the top of our list of what we liked most on our trip.

    Gentle giants, for sure! They are well-cared for and are good with all the attention. Everything advertised was included (feeding the elephants throughout, walking with them, mudding and washing them in the river, and being in their graceful presence).

    The staff really show that they care for the elephants. Our guide was wonderful in explaining how they live and what they do to help the animals live peaceful lives. Thank you!

    The cemetery is opposite the Death Railway museum so allow half an hour for the cemetery and an hour for the museum. The cemetery is well maintained and has good signage.

    We walked over the bridge and at the time had not read about the history yet. You can walk all the way across the river and take stairs down tge other side to get a good view.
    Remarkable history! We read about it later and went to the war museum for additional information.

    Very good museum which sets out the background to the war in SE Asia and the reasons for the Japanese decision to build the railway before going into some harrowing detail about life for the POWs involved in constructing the railway.

    An alternative to an organised tour is simply to hire a car which can take 3 people for about 4,000 TB. This means you can leave when you want and not bother collecting people from hotels in Bangkok. The direct drive is just over two hours and if you do the cemetery, death museum and a walk on the bridge that is another two hours - so the whole trip can be done in 6-7 hours instead of 10 or more by tour groups.

    My trip to Hellfire Pass was amazing we did a private tour and our guide walked us through the area and then a short a/c car ride to a local Thai restaurant for lunch (included) then onto the train to go over the last wooden bridge then back into the car to Kwai River Bridge and the Australian cemetery then back to Bangkok total trip was about 12 hrs and cost us $120 each included lunch, as much water as we could drink car rides train ride the tour guide entry into Hellfire experience and return to motel. (seriously the best way to do this otherwise you are driving around in a bus picking up heaps of people and then rushed at the sites.

    This trip, I take my family and children to go to the zoo. But certify that the zoo that we will take this time will be different from other places, of course, because tourists who visit the zoo will be able to get close to the animals of that kind. "Hugging a giraffe's neck, taking a selfie walking the tiger Feed the tiger by hand, which if anyone who has come to visit here is guaranteed to have fun, excitement, smiles, laughter and there are many animal shows to see.

    Sai Yok National Park is a medium-sized park, but has lots of attractions, including many waterfalls, rivers, caves, forests, and historical features. Great place to find Thailand's natural attractions.

    Really unique temple, which is well worth the visit. Many stairs to climb, however the views at the top are spectacular.
    The temple design and painting is very unique. It's very beautiful.
    The entrance is free however please feel free to leave a donation.

    I went on a trip to the Giant Chamchuri Tree with my family. There is a fresh atmosphere, a beautiful place, can go and take pictures under the Chamchuri tree. It is a very nice place to visit, clean and good atmosphere.

    This market is principally for locals. Tourists are catered for, but there are very few souvenir and no handicraft stalls. The food sections are varied and plentiful, but it's all takeaway; hardly any seating. It is an authentic Thai night market, bustling and lively.

    Many reviewers have confused this war cemetery with the larger Kanchanaburi War Cemetery in the center of Kanchanaburi. The Chong Kai Allied War Cemetery is across the river from the main part of Kanchanaburi city. It has many fewer graves than the Kanchanaburi cemetery, with about 1400 Commonwealth soldiers and 300-400 Dutch soldiers interred. The site of the Chong Kai cemetery was actually a camp for workers on the Death Railway and a location where POWs had established a hospital and church. Many of the soldiers buried in this cemetery had been treated at the POW hospital on site. The cemetery is beautifully maintained and very peaceful.

    As we were stopping near to Kanchanaburi anyway, decided to have a drive here & check it out. Quite enjoyable & when we visited the place was almost deserted, so we could take our time & have a really good look around.
    It was built as a religious Temple containing many artefacts from the Bayon Khmer period, strongly resembling those in Angkor Wat in Cambodia.
    The Park consists of 4 monuments & also a small display room.
    We spent between 1-2 hours here & that is plenty of time to walk round & have a good look at everything.

    Even though it was raining during our visit, it is still an amazing waterfall. We walked around the site carrying umbrellas.

    The temple is a beautiful applied Khmer art. It is a forest temple in the midst. The hug of the mountain has a shady atmosphere. Quiet, suitable for introspection and peace of mind. Originally, this temple had a cave as a chapel. but has now been Restored to be beautiful and magnificent by building a sandstone chapel with delicate carvings around the chapel covering the cave When walking into the Ubosot, you will reach the entrance to the cave, which has beautiful natural stalagmites and stalactites with a chimney inside the cave to let the light shine down.
