If you are in Kanchanaburi you'll want to stay here. If you are in Thailand go to Kanchanaburi just to stay here.
Noi and Apple are the most loveliest, genuine, funny Thai's you'll ever meet. The food is Amazing too! Noi's English is SUPURB.
They have a variety of day or part day tours (small minivan) to all the sightseeing sites. Including great advice if you wish to do it yourself. But i RECOMMEND you do the tours with them as there is no way you'll do more than one sightseeing/experience in a day.
!!! Noi even decided to take us herself (as the tour guide) with great advice and management like getting to the Erawan waterfalls early in the morning before the 100's of coachloads of tourists arrive (not exaggerating). With her humour, big smile and laugh we had a great day out and a great stay in general!!!
You can also walk to the Death bridge on the Kwai, walk over it, shop and walk back again in no more than a couple hours. When we arrived late afternoon this is what we did with no trouble. We then did the day tour the day after.
THE BEST PLACE I STAYED IN THAILAND.
