    Kanchanaburi Pics

    Hereís some pics from Kanchanaburi.

    Bus from Southern bus station about 100baht pp - We were originally going to take the train there but the taxi man had other ideas so we missed the 7:50am train #OhWell
    Iíve been here before but missus has not. It was nice to re-visit some museums though and discover a couple of new places.

    300 baht fan loom on a raft. Clean inside with a electric shower, free water and an amazing view out front. I was surprised. They also supply a litle plastic boat

    Mallika village is worth a visit. Read more here - Mallika City - The tourist attraction in Kanchanaburi. The past Siamese lifestyle in the reign of King Chulalongkorn, Rama V (1873-1910 A.D.) (Official website) And no.. I couldnít be arsed to dress up

    Loft Bar & Restaurant is a decent place to have dinner near the river and get a sunset view. Bit more expensive than the famous places right next to the bridge rammed with tourists .... but its nicer and quiet.

    Loom & View









    Cemetery Near the Railway Museum



    Bridge









    Chinese style temple next to the bridge






    Chinese Soldier Tomb



    JEATH Museum









    Loft Bar & Restaurant









    Backpacker area in Kanch - A shot of 'Black Cock' only 10b

    Million dollar view from that 300 baht room, punter.

    Fair play.

    Nice pictures, Looks like I missed some cool sights when I was out there. That old JEATH museum was in pretty rough shape when I was out there, but had some cool stuff to look at.

    Sounds and looks like you went alone you sad fukker. Why didnt you just stay in the taxi if there was two of you. Its only about 1000 baht aint it?

    Pics of the Russkies arse or it didnt happen


    Great pics by the way. You seem to have a good eye for photography

    Very nice, cheers. The pics are great.


    I go on a bike ride up around there every month or two, lovely break from Bkk.

    Great mountain roads, rivers, greenery, nurses. The whole shabang.

    The WWII stuff ensures lots of tourists/backpackers which means interesting bookshops, and places catering to Western tastes.

    My family enjoy staying on those floating hotel things up there, which is a bit unique and exotic for them.


    Cheers Punty.

    I stayed on one of the islands a few years ago. The rooms are generally shite, but who cares when you've got views like that?

    Cool pics! I have a bunch of Kanchanaburi on my flicker page as well. Did some videos too. The place is so calm and relaxing. Taking the train is fun too.. they have a little tourist train you can take over the bridge.
