A few more tips about a trip to Kanchanaburi. The bus to Kanchanaburi leaves every hour starting from 4 am until late at night from Southern Bus Terminal near Pinklao. You can take a bus there or more convemiently, by a taxi. Ask for Kanchanaburi ticket box to a guard as the terminal is a little confusing. You don’t need to book a ticket in advanced as it is very easy to get a ticket. It takes about two hours to Kanchanaburi. When you get there, you can hire a pick up near the bus station. You should visit the Hell Fire Pass Museum, and the Tiger Temple where they keep tigers and you can take photos with the tigers. Don’t worry. They won’t bite you. And from there, take a train back to Kanchanaburi. The train actually goes back to Bangkok, but the trip from Kanchanaburi to Bangkok is really boring. So take off at Kanchanaburi after taking photos at the Bridge over river Kwai.
Oh, by the way, don’t forget to visit the JEATH War Museum and Allied War Cemetry there too.
