3.2
#2 of 7 in Nature in Kanchanaburi
Filled with caves, teak trees, and exotic wildlife, Sai Yok National Park remains best known for its beautiful waterfalls. View the Sai Yok Yai waterfall from a rope suspension bridge across the Khwae Noi river. You can also exploring the park's large caverns, which reveal impressive stalactites and stalagmites. While you hike the trails, keep your eyes peeled for wildlife--inhabitants here include the Malayan porcupine, sambar deer, wild pigs, elephants, tigers, gibbons, and the red, white, and blue queen crab. Do not worry though: the more dangerous species on this list are quite shy. If you want to see the smallest mammal in the world, the Kitti's hog-nosed bat, visit the cave of Tham Khang Kow and take a flashlight.

  • In the park there are many waterfalls on the visit by local residents. The atmosphere is comfortable and clean. Across the road and in the area of the waterfall there is a lot of food outlets. For a muslim can find food in seven eleven. In front of seven eleven vending carts are also halal rotee.

  • With 300 baht admission not quite cheap for Thailand but hammer experiences there. It is beautiful to look at and a dream in cold water to dive. You should have but not afraid of the many small fish that nibble on the body. They quickly become accustomed and an unforgettable experience. Definitely a recommendation!

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.
