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.
