Kanchanaburi Information

Travel and Local Information Guide

Kanchanaburi is very easy to navigate around in. From the city centre, Highway 323 (Saeng Chuto Road) runs straight through the province to the westernmost border at the Three Pagodas Pass, where it continues on into Burma, totaling more than 250km.

Kanchanaburi’s history is so intertwined with railroads that you might want to consider embarking a train from Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong, as it allows you to ‘relive’ part of history through a journey along a section of the Death Railway and the infamous Bridge over the River Kwae (Kwai). Once in the city area, you can hire a motorcycle, bicycle, tuk-tuk, songtaew (passenger-carrying truck) or even rickshaw to get from one attraction to the next. To explore the natural attractions further out, though, you will need to rent a car, hire a chauffeured taxi or contact a local travel agent for packaged tours.
