It is a standard practice and stall holders have learnt the art of assembling and reassembling their wares at a moment’s notice!
Continue to Kanchanaburi and head towards a local train station for a one hour train ride along the famous Death Railway passing the breathtaking view of Kwai Noi gorge. Head to Kanchanaburi town and visit the famous Bridge over River Kwai featuring the history of World War II. Then stroll through the historical lanes in the Pak Preak community, lined with charming shop houses built during the reign of King Rama V. Guests are then driven to their hotel.
