    15 minutes with tuktuk, the temple in the cave is a nice getaway for a short while. It's a 15 minutes walk in the cave, and you see bats, statues, and a really nice cave with many rooms in it. Outside...  more »

    Is enshrined the Buddha cave interior is surprisingly spacious inside the cave so cool a little and the claustrophobic person is impossible. So go back to narrow as it is.

    Tours are not absolutely go on a bike. Bicycle with Globe-Trotter in the spirit that was written very irresponsible and far and mess up the Hill, so involved in life in Thailand! Is essential here, but honestly, lined with Golden Buddha a beautiful cave alone, Oh yes, I was. Sultry, spooky, so went out in one minute. 30 baht admission is a donation. The view from the observation tower is located just in the same premises off climbing the steep ride was great. It might be less visited because it was not at all equipped off the beaten path. Or tourist destinations including this view.

    Weekday low season you have the caves to yourself. If your obese(fat) then forget these caves not for the faint hearted. Some of the best caves around

    After visiting the cave walk along to the end of the track. There are excellent views over the river.

    This temple and cave is less than half an hour on a bicycle from Kanchanaburi town, and you can rent them in town for 50 baht a day, or you could get a scooter, motorbike or taxi if you prefer. It would take about an hour to walk. The entry is 30 baht, plus any donations. It's very professional, with a leaflet telling you about each room of the cave. The cave itself is amazing. There are Buddhist statues and shrines throughout, a room with a hole in the roof and the roots of a willow tree hanging down inches from your face, a huge golden Buddha and bats everywhere. The monks are very friendly and can answer any questions you have, and you can take pictures throughout the whole cave and surrounding area. At the exit of the cave there is a bamboo hut with photos from the construction of the Death Railway, along with facts and information about each photo, all of which was very informative. Nearby, the other direction from the road, up a small incline is a large golden Buddha overlooking the railway line, worth walking an extra two minutes for the view.

    My favorite cave in the area. Sometimes you have to hold your breath to get through the next small chamber but thats also a bit exciting. Not adviced for people who dont like small spaces.

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.
