I went to this national park on a weekday, and took a local bus from Kanchanaburi town. The one-way fare for the trip was only 50 baht. The buses from the Kanchanaburi train station runs a hour apart, ranging from 15’ to 10’ to each hour.
The entry fee was 300 baht for (adult) foreigners.
It was a horrific experience as the NP was overrun with tourists, making their way up and down the 7 tiers of the Erawan Falls.
It was all a very unpleasant experience for me, and needless to say, watching birds was out of the question.
Perhaps, for serious birders, they should hire a ranger to guide them away from the beaten paths. I managed to sight one racket-tailed drongo.
To date, this is the worst NP experience ever, and I will never return.
I can imagine the place during weekends.
Personally, I feel it does not deserve the NP listing, and feels more like a theme park than anything else.
Even though the falls were interesting enough, and quite worth a visit.

Beautiful place and the drive there was also enjoyable with some coffee shops and fruit stands along the way.

It’s 300baht entrance for tourists ($10)
There is parking, restrooms, souvenirs, and places to buy/eat/food/drinks.

Be forewarned they DO NOT allow smoking, drinking, pets, BBQ’s, bottles, plastics or food beyond the checkpoints into the park. This is to ensure the park stays as natural as possible, since humans are so irresponsible with their trash and feeding animals they shouldn’t.

Other than saying you’ve been to the top, the 7th falls was probably the least enjoyable. Falls 2, 4, 5 and 6.5... that’s right stray away from the herd and find your own private pool, without all the foot traffic and selfies takers.

Recommend coming earlier in the day, it does get hot and it’s a lot of walking/hiking/steps, and often muddy and slippery, so bring comfortable shoes & the APPROPRIATE bathing suits... Erawan is a sacred place and not for 2 piece bikinis and fat guys floating around in their speedos (see photos) and read the signs!

The park is amazing and kept very well by the rangers. It is very far from the main city and there is a fee for the entrance, but it is really woth it, great value. If you decide to go, put your snickers on and be ready to do trekking. The park is surrounded by incredible nature and animals. There are many natural swimmingpools in different levels, it is up to you how high would like to arrive. If you decide to swim be aware that this water is full of fish (big Garra rufa) that will pickel your feets, some people likes it, others cannot resist the weirdness. Must visit!

The seven waterfalls are amazing. The first four are easy to navigate. Getting to five thru seven is challenging. There are lots of slippery, sharp rocks and you have to wade through water. (I didn't have the correct shoes, and I ended up hiking the last four falls barefoot. It was harder, but seeing the amazing falls was worth it.)

If you do this as a day trip/tour, make sure you go with a tour company that will take good care of you, give you background and info and most of all give you plenty of time to hike the falls, frolick in the water and enjoy the natural beauty. Wish I'd done more research before selecting the company I went with.

Give yourself time to make it to the top because the seventh waterfall will blow you away with its beauty.
