Giant Tree Kanchanaburi, Kanchanaburi

4.2
#6 of 15 in Parks in Kanchanaburi
With the canopy at a height of 20 m (65 ft) and a trunk large enough to be encircled by ten people, Giant Tree Kanchanaburi awes visitors with nature’s understated grandness and beauty. This tree, which is over 100 years old, is not hard to reach and sits just outside the city, but it can be difficult to find, so seek out help from the locals. Relax under the huge, shady canopy while you watch cows and horses graze in the distance. Giant Tree Kanchanaburi is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Kanchanaburi Edition.

    If you are in this part of town and have access to a scooter/private car I would definitely recommend a visit. It is indeed giant, and provides a great place for photos.  more »

    Peaceful. Locals tell me the tree is 735 yes old...But I would believe any number over 200.

    It is not far away from the city, yet in a countryside. It is also not a long detour if you go to see the waterfalls and historic places.

Where to stay in Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi town center offers plenty of comfortable hotels, with pricier ones located right on the banks of the River Kwai. Move away from the river to take advantage of a drastic drop in prices for rooms offering much the same level of comfort and facilities provided by the city's riverside alternatives. Explore the rural areas for budget hotels, quirky rental apartments, and guesthouses making use of their scenic surroundings.
