Probably the main draw to Kanchanburi is the "Bridge over the River Kwai". I've been to Kancahaburi a couple times and have always enjoyed my visits. Walks along the river are nice and cool although recent development is changing the face of the rivers edge.

At the JEATH War Museum you can learn of the cruelties suffered during the building of the railway line from Thailand into Burma.
