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
Beautiful views out over the river. We couldn't walk around too far as there was a train there at that particular time but it looked to be a nice little walk.
There's a lovely shrine nestled into a cave at the start which was very...More
Having travelled by the tourist train from Kanchanaburi up to Tham Kra Sae and then heading up to Wang Pho, you cross the Tham Kra Sae Bridge. This is an engineering feat that came at a terrible cost in lives as it was constructed by...More
Beautiful scenery amidst the tragic history surrounding this place. Good walking across the track although the train still actively passes by on a schedule. Not for people afraid of heights to walk through. It is quite amazing to think how it was built. The train...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
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 train to fit it all in with the train schedule. Hope this helps and safe travels. Strangely i am currently watching the River Kwai movie at home. Lest we forget
I have no idea if there would be a bus from Mallika through to Krasae but even if there was it would probably still drop off on the main road (some way from the railway). Although I might be wrong your second option of going... More
I have no idea if there would be a bus from Mallika through to Krasae but even if there was it would probably still drop off on the main road (some way from the railway). Although I might be wrong your second option of going back to Kanchanaburi seems impractical.
I have little doubt there would be options available from local travel agents in Kanchanaburi that would take you on a minibus to these places, returning to Kanchanaburi on the train from Tham Krasae. If you are determined to use the local bus then the best option might be to get a taxi from Mallika to Tham Krasae station and catch the train back to Kanchanaburi.
