  • What are places in Kanchanaburi that would be interesting for farangs?

    Any farang bars, pubs or activities for foreigners out that way? I am going there for 6 weeks and I am worried I will be bored.

    There is the Jeath war museum that is quite interesting to visit as well as the war museum by the bridge. Visiting the war cemetary is historical. There is a art museum next to the war museum near the river Kwai.
    You can also take a train over the Bridge over the River Kwai (known as the death railway). This is what I did when I was there.

      Why are you going to Kanchanaburi for six weeks?

      Work?

      The Erawan waterfall is worth a visit and there'a an elephant sanctuary which I could dig up on the internet if you're interested.

      A few caves to explore and you can hire a canoe for a day (no, not in the caves).

      You are going to need transport. Will you have access to a car or bike?

          There are plenty of farang venues- bars, restaurants, accomodation- clustered around the Kwai Bridge Rd and side soi's. Actual 'downtown' Kanchanburi has relatively few westerners- although that might make it a welcome change. I found eating out there to be pretty good, and cheap. Nice area too- plenty to see and do. I'd definitely organise some wheels, to get the best of it.

            Is this one of Willy King's multinics with the usual typo in the title?

            Can someone fix this please?

              Does or did that Captain Sensible own a bar there?

                I don't know, personally- Capt Sensible had already done the TD flounce before I became active there.

                    Funny you should ask. Yes.

                        I just did a two day trip with a pal on the our motorcycles. If you've never been there are plenty of war museums and memorials. Hell fire pass is worth a trip and their are plenty of falls to see. By bike is best for me as I'm impulsive and like to take a chance but you have to be cautious of the nutters in cars, buses and trucks. As for bars I'm not a drinker but when I do go out on the odd occasion I do like a drink. Met a decent bunch of folk from Germans to Americans with plenty of stories to tell at the 'Aussie Rules Bar' Decent pizza shop opposite as well!
