    This place was the excursion program on quay of aneksa, not the big waterfall, swim, not cold, water became ❄. Liked nature, vegetation, the first time I was in Thailand, like never before seen. Who will be the first time in Thailand, and who have never been to Asia, it will be very interesting and informative.

Where to stay in Kanchanaburi
