A Lovely Destination for Tourists

Prices vary, but are not cheap by Australian standards and there are caddy fees and tips on top.  I have heard that courses in Pattaya are cheaper, so that will be on the agenda for the future.

We took time out to do a quick tour of several places we were interested in, so spent a few days in Chang Mai in the north of Thailand, which was cooler but still green & tropical.  It is a former capital in a scenic area, quite close to the Burmese border on one side & North Vietnam & Laos on the other.  We will return there to explore further. 

We also went to Kanchanburi to see the Death Railway & Bridge on the River Kwae.  Whilst the Railway and cemetery were very moving and the stay in the floating hotel moored on the banks of the river was relaxing, we found the area quite arid compared to Chang Mai and considerably less scenic.

It was now time to cross the famous river Kwai Bridge, high up above the water walking along the train tracks with gaps สล็อต on each side this isn’t for someone whose scared of heights although its quite safe if your careful and if a train comes there’s plenty of time to get out of the way and wait safely on one of the waiting areas.

After crossing the bridge we settled down in a floating restaurant under bridge for some delicious Thai food and then set off on the bikes. We rode back through the town and to the death railway museum which is full artifacts, models and stories from the Thai Burmer railway during ww2. After a quick cup of tea at the museum it was a short ride back to the car and we headed off to the famous Wang Pho Viaduct.

It took us just 45 minutes to get there and the short drive is well worth it, this place is picturesque and the size of the Viaduct is fascinating. It gave us a great opportunity for some photos especially when the train came past. It was now time to head home after along day. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see most of popular places in kanchanaburi but by different means, bicycle. The guide (Pakkard) was excellent and did everything she could for us. We finished the day feeling good and happy to have done the trip.
