Wow...we only chose to go to the River Kwai as a last minute decision when booking our honeymoon holiday...I'm glad that we did! We didn't actually stay in Kanchanaburi, we were about 70 kms north on the River Kwai...in a great 'resort' there. We got to ride an elephant, pat tigers, bamboo raft down the river etc...very nice! :)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet, friendly, so much to see...
  • Cons:Even more humid than Bangkok
  • In a nutshell:Definitely worth the trip!

    Thanks for the info. The tiger temple looks wonderful. I have seen the movie and been to the bridge before once. Great tips and page.
