This is my first review about Kanchanaburi... let's go^^
First day, I drive from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi and heading to my first destination which is Giant Monky Pod Tree located in Veterinary and Remount Department
Then heading to Sangkhlaburi District...
The white Buddha image at Wat Tha Kanun
Next station is Pom Pee at Khao Laem National Park...
It is really beautiful and I really want to wait for sunset but I do not want to be late when arriving to Sangkhlaburi District.
PS. Next time I will come here for camping
Here we are Mon Bridge
Enough photo and go to the resort that we have booked "Cat and Oil Home" https://www.facebook.com/CatandOilhome/ Room rate 1,500-2,000 Baht
Inside the room
View from the balcony
Wake up in an early morning and prepare to go to take photo at Song Kalia River Bridge. I take the monk food set as per resort owner suggestion.
Make a merit and give food to monk
Then I go to find something to eat near by Mon Bridge
Today I plan to go to temples and warship to Buddha
1. Wat Wangwiwakaram (Wat Luang Por Utama)
2. Phuttakaya Pagoda (under renovation)
Then come back to check out from the resort and head to Three Pagoda Pass
I park my car and take a rental van to Myanmar temples which is about 300 baht. In order to cross the border, you only new your ID card for Thai citizen.
1. Wat Sao Roi Ton Muent Payatongsoo
There are 120 Buddha images beside the temple which they expect to have 500 images here (the driver told me)
2. Wat Chedee Thong
3. Wat Phra Non
4. Wat Tong Wai
Before go back....it is "Thai"
Come back to Thailand, tonight I stay at Oh Dee Hostel https://www.facebook.com/OhDeeHostel
590 baht/night (mixed bedroom) which is only 50 metre away from walking street.
I would like to go to Wat Tai Nam (Under water temple), but I come by myself so the hostel helps me to join with another group this evening. So I only pay 150 baht for that trip. ^^
After that go to walking street and go back to the room.
I go to give food to monk at Mon Bridge in the morning and go to Baan E-Tong later.
Passing by Wachiralongkorn Dam
Arriving to Baan E-Tong in the afternoon and check-in to Love Pilok Homestay https://www.facebook.com/Banthantawanhomestaypilok/ Due to they give me discount from 1,000 baht to 800 baht.
Sunset at Nern Chang Suek
(I will come back again for sunrise)
The atmosphere in the village is quiet and peaceful. Feeling so relax with cold weather
Here we are...Sunrise at Nern Chang Suek
Say Good Bye to Baan E-Tong and prepare myself to waterfall
Heading to Srisawad District, and go to check in at Phufa Ing Nam Lake Resort https://www.facebook.com/pufalakeresort/ 1,500 baht/night. The resort is quiet and peaceful and there are not too many people.
Next destination Tha Tung Na Dam
Heading to Tha Tung Na Dam and check in at Baan Kok Kod https://www.facebook.com/baankokkodpage/
Resort beside the dam at 1,300 baht...I really like it here...
Just want to stop the time and be here -_-zZ
The room with shared bathroom
Around Baan Kok Kod
The highlight is bamboo wood bridge that passes along Kok Field to the dam which is the relaxing area and photo point that I really like.
Night atmosphere... million stars on the clear sky
If I do not come...I might not see
Good morning Baan Kok Kod I might not be able to express all of my feeling and the atmosphere that I have been in touch...please see on the short VDO below.
