How to get to Kanchanaburi from Bangkok

What about

Say ‘Kanchanaburi’, and inevitably the first thing to come to your mind is the bridge over the River Kwai. There are WWII memorable places all over the province, true, but Kanchanaburi is not at all just about the horrors of the war. It is arguably the greenest province of Thailand with lush jungles covering the greater part of it. Kanchanaburi is home to one of the most beautiful – though extremely touristy – waterfalls in the country, the Erawan waterfall, and Prasat Mueang Singh, now a historical park and an important monument of Khmer architecture in Thailand, is found there, too. The idyllic area along the River Kwai banks is dotted with luxury and boutique resorts but the budget digs do not lack, either. And if you venture further west to the little town of Sangkhlaburi sitting by the Thai-Myanmar border, you will be rewarded with unspoiled natural beauty, authentic Mon curries and that special otherworldly feeling which is getting a rare bird nowadays.

How to get from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi lies only 150 km to the west of Bangkok, but expect that your trip – by bus, by van, by taxi or by train – would take no less than 2½ hours. Private taxis offer the fastest and the most convenient ride; vans are great as far as a price-vs-quality ratio is concerned; and trains are cheap and not traffic-dependent.

From Bangkok to Kanchanaburi by bus or van

The overwhelming majority of Kanchanaburi bound buses leave from the Southern bus terminal in Bangkok, Sai Tai Mai. Some private companies, including Kwan Chee Vee Tour, operate vans from the Northern bus terminal, Morchit. The trip from Morchit is a bit longer and can take about three hours. Van tickets cost THB150, but note that the luggage space is rather limited – consider buying a separate ticket for your luggage unless you are travelling with a 20l backpack. There are hourly vans from Morchit to Kanchanaburi with the first one leaving Bangkok at 4am and arriving to Kanchanaburi at 7am and the last one departing at 6pm and reaching its destination at 9pm.

Morchit bus terminal is located in the northern part of the city and is an ideal starting point if you arrive to Don Mueang airport and intend to proceed immediately to Kanchanaburi (and vice versa – if you leave Kanchanaburi and are going to the airport next). To get there from the centre, get off at Morchit BTS stop and then take a taxi for a short ride to the bus terminal.

In Kanchanaburi, Kwan Chee Vee Tour vans bring passengers to Kanchanaburi bus terminal located between U-Thong Soi 4 and Soi 6 in the southern part of the city, about 2.5 km from the main guesthouse area. To get to your accommodation, take a songthaew (THB10 per person), or opt for a motorbike taxi (THB40).

Vans of Hanuman Tour Siam pick up passengers at Victory Monument in Bangkok. It is very handy if you stay in the central parts of Bangkok, in Sukhumvit Road, close to any of the BTS stations, or just arriving to Bangkok by van from any of the many destinations served by vans based in the Victory Monument area. Hanuman Tour Siam sells tickets at THB180 and goes to Kanchanaburi North at the intersection of Route 3199 (Lad Ya–Bo Ploy) and 3086 (Thanon Phra Kru Son) but pass through Kanchanaburi – tell the driver where you would like to get off. Vans leave every 40 minutes from 5am till 6.20pm.

There is direct service to Kanchanaburi from Khao San Road area in Bangkok, too, which is a sensible choice if you stay anywhere in the area as it saves you a trip to the bus station. Thai Sriram have four vans a day leaving from their office off Chakrabongse Road, close to Mayom junction, one block to the southwest of Khao San Road. In Kanchanaburi, vans disembark at Kanchanaburi bus station U-Thong Soi 4 and Soi 6. Tickets cost THB250.

Tip: If you have not booked your accommodation in Kanchanaburi in advance, try to arrive around noon the latest: rooms fill up quickly even in the low season, and during weekend it is always a full house. That said, you are unlikely to stay in the street for the night, but you may end up paying more than you expected to.

From Bangkok to Kanchanaburi by train

The Nam Tok branch of the Southern line of Thai railways (aka Western line) runs through Kanchanaburi, so technically you can get from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi by train. The line starts in Thonburi (you cannot catch a direct train to Kanchanaburi in Hua Lamphong!) and terminates in Nam Tok. The advantage of a train journey is that the train station in Kanchanaburi is located within walking distance (about 500 m) from the guesthouse area. The disadvantage is the third class fan only seats. Buy tickets on the spot.

From Bangkok to Kanchanaburi by taxi

PGS company offers private door-to-door transfer from any location in Bangkok to Kanchanaburi. Transit time is two and a half hours only, and you can choose between Toyota Camry for 3 passengers maximum (THB3,000) or Toyota Commuter which accommodates up to 9 travellers (THB3,400). The rates are ill-inclusive meaning no extra toll charges or additional fees for pickup or drop-off at specific locations.

There is a VIP transfer from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi offered by Bell Transport. Go to the River Kwai in style in a Mercedes S-Class (THB8,800 per vehicle) or Mercedes Vito Van (THB11,000 per vehicle). Well... There are people who appreciate German comfort and safety, right?

Getting around

All the main attractions of Kanchanaburi are located out of town, so the best way to explore them independently is to rent a bicycle, a motorbike or a car. Tour agencies along Mae Man Kwae Street offer a wide choice of tours at reasonable prices, so it may prove easier to go on a package. To cross Mae Khlong, board a river ferry which costs THB5.

Where to stay

The best choice of budget accommodation is found along Mae Nam Kwai Street, from Rong Hee Baoy 3 Road in the south to France Street in the north. The majority of riverfront options are raft houses right over the water. The setting in unbeatable, but be ready to fight with mosquitoes which are plentiful there. There are many services geared towards travellers in Mae Nam Kwai Street – from rent-a-bike shops (from about THB200 per day) and tour agencies to ATMs and 7/Eleven. If you are looking for a more up class choices, consider resorts in the Death Railway Bridge area.

Activities

Kanchanaburi province has something to offer to every traveller, and it is not an exaggeration. WWII related sights including Hellfire Pass or the notorious Death Railway are a must-see for history buffs; elephant trekking and bamboo rafting will appeal to adventurous types; astonishing waterfalls with crystal clear pools for swimming and hiking trails in Erawan national park are a great pastime for a whole family. Visit a floating market or meditate in a tranquil retreat; go fishing or canoeing; explore caves inhabited by rare animals in Sai Yok National Park or opt for bird-watching in Kroeng Kravia Swamp – whether you spend a couple of days or a month in Kanchanaburi, you are sure not to get bored.

Onward travel from Kanchanaburi: Find your Thai Myanmar in Sangkhlaburi

An elegant silhouette of a wooden Mon bridge is hardly visible behind a transparent veil of the morning mist. Young barefooted girls hurry from Wang Kha to the other side of the Khuean Khao Laem with piles of metal bowls balancing on their heads. The rattle of longtail boats over the water ushers the day in, and a golden chedi of Wat Mon glitters in the distance, surrounded by the sea of lush greenery.

The two things any visitor to Sangkhlaburi should do is to walk along the Mon bridge to Wang Khla to experience ‘Thai little Burma’ with men wearing traditional longyies, women and children with tanaka powder on their cheeks, flavoursome Mon curries in street cafes and a postcard perfect view of the bridge which will inevitably make you think of Amarapura – well, if you have ever ventured up there.

The second thing is a boat trip to the sunken temple which used to be the main wat of the Mon settlement before the dam was constructed in 1982. Even though the most part of the year you can walk inside the temple as the water level in Khao Laem reservoir remains relatively low, the whole place oozes tons of atmosphere. It is even more fun in summer when it often rains the whole day through, as both the bridge and the temple look especially mysterious. The boats are wonderfully affordable, too, and cost THB300 for the trip up to the temple.

For even a greater experience invest in a suit room at P Guesthouse on the Thai side of the bridge (THB900). Their suits are located on the second floor of the main building, are perfectly appointed and have balconies with jaw-dropping view over the bridge and Chedi Buddakhaya in Wang Khla. If you choose to stay on the Mon side, come to the restaurant in P Guesthouse for an affordable and tasty dinner at sunset.

Tip: There are local buses travelling between Kanchanaburi and Sangkhlaburi, but the route 323 which leads to the border town is best done on your own wheels. If you go by bus, you miss half the charm of your journey: you will be unable to make a stop at Thong Pha Phum and to go up the hill to Wat Tha Kha Nun for a picturesque view; you will not enjoy a cup of the best Thai coffee grown locally in one of those no-name coffee shops along the way; and you will not detour to Hin Tat hot springs, either.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that though we are closely monitoring services, we are still an agency marketplace - meaning we focus on ticketing service and route availability / coverage rather than on factual seat recline angle you got today ^_^

Very easy from Bangkok’s Sai Tai Mai bus station (Bangkok’s southern bus station). We arrived an hour early, checked in and were able to get on the earlier service which was great! Quite a long trip, around 2-3 hours (wasn’t taking note, sorry) so bring a travel pillow to catch up on sleep. Overall really good service.

The whole trip seemed really unorganized. We were late leaving from the tour depot then stopped at a bus station, where we were told to get off and wait for another hour and a half for another bus because we had missed ours by leaving late. The lady at the desk was really apologetic and did the best she could. We eventually got onto another van to kanchaniburi, which was cramped and the aircon didn't work. Overall very uncomfortable and hectic, but traffic was crazy on a Friday evening. The staff is great and will do what they can.

12go gave me a good service, they changed my date the day before my departure. The agency is very good. But we arrived more than 1 hour late at our destination, because we had to wait for local people to join, so the van is that full that all luggage is filling the floor between the seats. So every time a local passenger want to jump off somewhere, we used alot of time to move the luggage around so they could get out. I dont know why it's like that every time with the minivans. When you pay alot more than the locals, then we should sit comfortable, have space and get there in time.

It's so hard to find the van. And the driver just didn't stop at somewhere near the railway station. I had a hard time looking for taxi after I had a meal outside the bus terminal. Actually there are only tuk-tuks and they don't move around but wait at the terminal.

Left a little late but arrived on time nevertheless. The van wasn't the cleanest but was okay. The worst part of the journey was just how uncomfortable sitting in the van was! Every pothole, ditch or slight unevenness in the tarmac could be felt, even on roads that were fairly new and did not have any potholes. For a cheap journey it wasn't so bad, wouldn't be happy if I paid more.

Very pleasant drive. Took about 3,5h to get to the kanchanaburi bus station (I asked to drop me of at that point), because besides passengers, also packages had to be delivered.

It was so stressful finding the bus. There were no directions at the station and the information I was sent wasn’t helpful enough. The bus station is full of unhelpful people trying to scam you. However when I finally found the bus it was fine. The bus wasn’t in very good condition but the driver drove well and we got to Kanchanaburi in good time.

The only issue is finding where in the bus station to get the van. In our case, it was the third terminal in the station which means walking through two bus parks to the third bus car park. There's little signage to help. Leave some time to locate the right company and bus.

We were set to leave our hotel in Bangkok at 9am. When we checked out and went to the lobby at 8:55am, we were pleasantly surprised to see our driver already waiting for us. We rode in a newer clean Toyota Camry. We arrived a little later than expected in Kanchanaburi, but there was heavy traffic as we left Bangkok so no one's fault. The driver was also nice enough to stop at a gas station to allow us to use the restrooms halfway through the trip.

It was comfy and arrived on time. The only negative was we left late and then due to bad traffic in Bangkok the driver had to drive very fast and it felt a little uneasy for a westerner.

We came to the Sai Tai Mai and searched for the platform. It took us a long time to find it but luckily, we came 1 hour too early, so it wasn't that bad. When we came toh the right platform and showed the ticket on my phone, the woman first shoock her head and said no. Then I showed her every screenshot I took from the ticket booking. Then she said, we can take the bus, but it will leave half an hour earlier. So it wasn't organized very well, luckily we came earlier to the Bus terminal or maybe we had missed the bus.

I wasn't happy with the signs at the bus station (mai sai tai). On their voucher they told me I had to find a counter at platform 9, there are more platform 9's at the station. We departured earlier than scheduled --> +1 Trip was shorter than 3 hours (2 hours), but the taxi driver drove as if he wanted us death.

I bought tickets for myself and 2 others online 2 days before our trip. As I went up to the check in counter and showed the lady my phone tickets, she directed me to go down to the platform. I thought this odd, as I have booked with 12go.asia before and they always look at my phone and then print out physical copies of our tickets and give them to us. We went down to the platform, then were denied access to the bus and were directed to go back to the ticket counter. We then went back to the ticket counter, where we were directed to the Kanachanaburi counter specifically, only to find no one there. We continually asked around for help, everyone telling us to go the kanchanaburi ticket counter, but still no one was there. Finally we went back down to the platform and tried to explain to the ladies what had happened. But they simply shook their heads and demanded we pay for tickets. All in all we had to pay for another whole set of tickets, even though we had already purchased them.

Hard to find the place of departure. Need to ask it several times. The bus had a delay of half an hour. Stopped several times to drop or pick up people, it took Some time. The ride took more then 3 hours, but the price was low, so quite good value for the money. Bus was Oke. Don't forget to book an extra Seat for your luggage,; we had to sit on our backpack / suitcase which was not very comfortable!

The bus arrived on time and left about 15-20 minutes later which is completely reasonable for Thailand! AC worked just fine and the seats weren't bad compared to other vans I've been on, they even reclined a bit. Everyone was very friendly (and the driver was very kind when I had to ask for an emergency bathroom break!) The drive took longer than anticipated but I know that's because we left during rush hour on a Friday so keep that in mind.
