From Kanchanaburi downtown, may take Kanchanaburi Train Station or at Bridge over River Kwai Station. Cost is 100 Baht and takes not more than two hours travel.

Try to schedule your visit when the local train passes (twice a day) to enhance your experience and allow for interesting photography. Otherwise there is little to see except the wooden and concrete viaduct that was originally constructed by prisoners of war during World War...More

A short walk from Tham Krasae Station along the railway track past the Krasae Cave. Not for the faint hearted especially those with vertigo as one has a sheer drop to the river. Particularly dangerous if people come the other way with little space to...More

This section of railway is part of the whole tragic railway story and it should be remembered that way. The scenery is great, the structures also impressive, but it tragic story should not be forgotten in the midst of the tourist fanfare.

We went to this place around 10 a.m. in the morning. The cave full of fog for pest control (mosquitoes gas spray). We weren't able to hold up our breath that long to enjoy this place. Is that necessary to do this in the morning?...More

When you buy your ticket, ask for Nam Tok. You can only buy one way at the Kwai bridge ticket office. I think you can step off at Tham Kra Sae then jump back on the next train to Nam Tok. You may have to start on the early... More
