Kanchanaburi - Felix River Kwai Resort

Checking out this resort,always have wanted to visit The Bridge on the River Kwai and wondered if this is the sort of area to spend a couple of days or more before we head back to our very special treat of a week at the Sofitel Hua Hin. Really want to experience a different part of Thailand to our usual Bangkok stays. Is the taxi situation the same as to Hua Hin and finally would it be easy to get transport down to Hua Hin from Kanchanaburi or should we do the trip in reverse as we will be flying in from 5 days in Chiang Mai.

Youh hotel in Kanchanaburi can arrange a taxi / car with driver for you, it should take about 3 hours from there to Hua Hin, easy. You can also do by train but you have to change trains and it becomes a long journey, by car is the easiest. Remember also that around Hua hin especialy to the south of the town are lots of temples and old historical temples and the national park starts about 20 minutes south of town and that has peaks, temples, birdwatching, beaches, caves and the famous wetlands, so that is also interesting to visit for half a day, you can arrange that easily in HH. Felix is a good reliable choice.
