Erawan National Park

Reviewed By Rattanak H

With 6 level of water fall about 1300 meter high from the ground, the place is very nice with the quality of water like pool and a lot of fishes in inside. It's about 90km from Kanchanaburi Town. And the entrance fee about 300 Bath for foreigners and 100 Bath for local people.

Erawan Falls

Reviewed By lauren2492 - Sunderland, United Kingdom

This is the most beautiful place i have ever been. It is much cooler than the centre of Kanchanaburi, where we were staying, and even if you get too hot you can swim in the falls at any level. We made the mistake of getting the 11am bus so by the time we got there it was peak heat over lunchtime. The falls are set over 7 levels and you can climb as many or as few as you want. We climbed all the way to the top, it wasnt as difficult as people make out, i wouldnt say i was particularly fit and i managed to go all the way to the top in flip flops! I would definitely say to go straight to the top as the top levels are the ones that get closed first by the rangers. You arent meant to take any food or drink past level 2 and if you want to take drinking water you need to pay a deposit and you get the money back when you show your empty bottle, which is an excellent way to combat litter, however it doesnt seem to be enforced. The fish in the water nibble at your feet which is such a strange feeling at first but you get used to it and have lovely soft skin afterwards!

Khuean Srinagarindra National Park

Waterfalls, hot Springs, caves, an island-studded Reservoir and abundant wildlife characterize this 1,532-square-kilometer park.

Reviewed By Raintree_Thailand - Bangkok, Thailand

Khuean Srinagarindra National Park has lots to offer: caves, Forests, a huge Reservoir, beautiful drives, mountain scenary, Waterfalls.... Pretty much everything that Erawan has to offer, but without the crowds.

Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum and Walking Trail

A memorial dedicated to the Asian labourers and Allied prisoners of war who suffered and died constructing and maintaining the Burma-Thailand railway during WW II.

Reviewed By Roberts69 - Northampton, United Kingdom

Firstly the museum is very good and very educational for anyone not knowing the full history and story of the Burma - Thailand Railway and the plight of the POW's and Civilians that were forced to build it. Made famous of late by the film "The Railway Man" this really is a museum and a piece of wartime history not to be missed. The Museum is open every day except Christmas Day from 9am until 4pm and admission is free. From the museum we took the trail down into Hellfire Pass. This was quite a climb down quite uneven steps and rather strenuous in the humid heat, but really made you think hard about the conditions the poor guys working to dig out this railway cutting had to endure. My Great Uncle was captured in Burma during WW2 and we are not sure if he was made to work the railway or not but he certainly endured being a PoW in this region and it just makes you think hard just how dreadful life must have been... Visit, remember and respect what went on in Hellfire Pass.

Huay Mae Khamin Waterfalls

Reviewed By boazsharon - .

We are a family of 4, and decides to have one day trip from Kanchanaburi the Waterfalls. We had 2 options: Erawan and Khamin as they have seven Waterfalls both, and in the same direction. We had recommendations to go for Khamin, and so we did. After passing the more popular Erawan Waterfalls, we continue another 45 minutes drive, and were not disappointed. The place is well organized and clean. The passes between the Waterfalls are very convenient. It is less crowded than Erawan, and as far as I remember Erawan (I visited there in the past), Khamin is even more attractive visually.
We were 2 adults with 2 children and a car and paid 1030 Bahts.

Phra That Cave

Reviewed By Calvin N - Boston, Massachusetts

The entrance fee is 300 baht that includes entrance to Erawan waterfall parks. Bring your sneakers and water. You will need it. It is about a mile hike to the cave. The amount of stairs are insane!! So take your time getting up there. Once you make it there is a tour guide that will lead you into the cave. The cave is really big and the guide used a lantern which will create awesome affect on the sculptures. Please tip the tour guide about 40 baht or so.

Chaloem Rattanakosin National Park

Reviewed By JPHStVincent - Singapore, Singapore

Chaloem Rattanakosin National Park is reported to be Thailand's smallest. Is this one reason it gets few visitors from other countries? The park preserves a beautiful slice of Thailand's jungle-karst country. There is an excellent trail that starts not far from the visitor centre. The trail goes through Than Lot Noi Cave - a 300 m natural tunnel with some nice rock formations and a stream. The cave is lit until 4 pm. The trail through the jungle is then fairly easy until Tri Treung waterfall, a pretty but not outstanding Thai jungle waterfall. After that the trail becomes quite a bit more strenuous until it reaches Than Lot Yai Cave. This is really a natural arch through a limestone wall. It is a spectacular sight indeed and makes all of the effort worthwhile. To hike from the visitor to Than Lot Yai Cave and back takes about three hours at a sensible pace. It is best to start in the morning as the lights in Than Lot Noi cave go out at 4 pm! It is about 80 km from Kanchanaburi to the Park, so it makes a good day trip. I saw only one other farrang while I was there, but there were a lot of Thai visitors, as it was a public holiday.
