    We had a great experience at Elephant Haven. Patrick and Pook were excellent guides and representatives of the haven. There are now 6 elephants on site as 2 passed away in the spring. We learned a great deal about elephant lifestyle and habitats. The elephants were happy and content…we spent the day preparing their food, feeding the elephants (they eat 10% of their body weight every day), taking them on a walk through the jungle area, watching them swim, waiting patiently while they ate trees and bushes, (elephants eat 20 out of 24 hours), taking them back to the camp while we had our lunch (which was varied and good), then walked with the elephants again to the mud pool where they played in the mud, and finally back to the River again where we got to swim with the elephants. Shower facilities are on site so visitors can clean-up before hitting the road. All in all, it was a fantastic experience. Thank you Elephant Haven!

    This is the death bridge of Tham Krasae. It is a historical place in Kanchanaburi that has been around for a long time. This place is very beautiful and natural. Besides, I took the train too, I really liked it and would like to go again.

    Mallika City, throwback to Assoc. 124, with Thai costumes for rent There is a 30 baht rickshaw service at the end of the city. Walk back up and travel around the city by yourself. The atmosphere is beautiful in retro, drinks, food, antiques are available for tasting, shopping, beautiful and clean.

    The place tries to be nice to the animals so it has canceled commercial shows and rides on the elephants, unlike some other elephant parks. In this case, you can clean the elephant using soap and brush. Clothes and shoes that you can use for bathing are also provided. What is missing a little is proper place where to change the clothes. I use bathroom that is few meters away from the entrance to the river so I needed to rush to make it on time with my group.
    Elephants are cute. The whole bathing thing is just a show for tourists and the elephants threw some sand from river's side on themselves right after bathing. Another activity done with the elephants is feeding. There were buckets with watermelon that you can give to the elephant - he will grab the watermelon with his trunk and eat it.

    Very informative museum with clear information in both Thai and English. Very safe and built with the safety of visitors in mind. 600 meter walk from the museum to Hellfire Pass. The walking path is in excellent condition.

    Visits to Daowadueng Cave are quite an informal affair. The turnoff from the main highway (323) going to the cave is well marked although the road is a bit narrow. Upon reaching a small park ranger station, visitors are guided to proceed up the less-developed road for another 400 or 500 meters. The ranger will follow on motorbike. From the end of the road, the cave is up the mountain another 400 or 500 meters, hiking up a mostly gentle trail that passes through very nice bamboo and dipterocarp forest. The cave has old electric lighting installed, which the ranger will turn on and guide people through the cave. The lighting is not great though, so visitors would be advised to bring their torch to be able to see the cave formations better. The entrance is sloping and a few of the passages require visitors to squat to squeeze through but generally the cave is not difficult to manuever. The ranger "guide" is somewhat unsystematic about where he takes visitors and the amount of time spent in the cave, but seems to aim for about 30 minutes in the cave. There are a few bats and some very good speleothems, including some impressive curtain stalactites. Visitors are shown only a small part of the cave. There is no formal charge for entrance or the guide service. We gave the ranger 200 baht, as noted by other reviewers and he seems quite content with that.

    Not a big waterfall directly next to highway 323 with beautiful surrounding. Not far from the fall there is a quasi historic train locomotive to view.
    Though the waterfall is part of the Sai Yok Yai National Park you do not need entry ticket to see this fall. It is free to visit. You can easily park on side of the street. There is no dedicated parking lot and typically no crowd.
    It is not worth driving to see it but worth a stop if driving by.

    This is not a surprise to find more than 50 excellent comments. What else to add … it was an amazing time ! We were a couple with our 4 years old daughter and we took a kayak tour and a bath with elephants. Dave and team were focused on Safety, kind with young children and fun with older. An excellent way to discover more from Thailand nature. We particularly appreciated the bath with elephants and kayak in the wild river. Thank you so much Dave and team.

    This place is paradise. I met with Tong, one of the most amazing person i met in Thailand. She organised this trip from Bangkok to Sai Yok. She is very detailed oriented, friendly, polite, customer oriented, honest and most importantly she looks after the elephants as her own babies. The elephants are so happy, playful and well looked after.

    My wife and myself enjoyed the elephants interaction and the mahouts. We did all activities as a donation to the sanctuary. Tong shares part of the amount to the mahouts and most of them to the elephants. She will explain you more about the daily life when you get over there.

    We will visit and support the sanctuary again.

    Photos attached speak for themselves.

    Nice place, gave 4 stars as tried to charge for kids initially

    It’s not a place for kids but called here on passing by - they did enjoy it but more an adults place

    Not sure about all of the properties they claim to do from each pool etc but great concept

    Excellent activity. Safe, enjoyable and challenging. 9 year old loved it. 7 year old was scared and only managed 50%. Probably most enjoyable for ages 9+

    During my cycling trip in Thailand, I bypassed Baan Ricky, an Restaurant and Guesthouse, and stopped for lunch and break. I can recommend the very good meal. After some time, Rick, the owner, came to me and we talked maybe one hour about cycling, motocrossing and countryside things. Only the near street was a bit loud.

    I can't say anything about the guesthouse or the motocross training, because I used only the restaurant.
