        KANCHANABURI  INFORMATION


  

      According to most historians, the ancient town of Kanchanaburi was located near Ban Lat Ya,   a   small village situated approximately 16 kilometers north of the present town. The site was   repeatedly recorded in Thai history as an invasion route which the Burmese used to enter Thai   Kingdoms.

     Kanchanaburi, which has mostly mountainous terrain, covers an area of approximately 19,473   square   kilometers and is the third largest province in Thailand after Chiang Mai and Nakhon   Ratchasima.   Situated approximately 129 kilometres west of Bangkok, Kanchanaburi shares a   border with Myanmar   to the west, Tak and Uthai Thani Provinces to the north, Suphan Buri and   Nakhon Pathom Provinces   to the east, and Ratchaburi Province to the south.

  In north and west Kanchanaburi, the terrain is comprised mainly of   mountains and high plains, with the Thanon Thongchai Range acting as   a  natural border between Thailand and Myanmar. The range is the   source of   Kanchanaburi's two most important rivers Maenam Khwae   Noi and   Maenam Khwae Yai, which form the famous Maenam Mae   Klong. As a   result, several of Thailand's largest Namtok (waterfalls)   and most extensive   wildlife sanctuaries are found in this area.

     The magnificent landscape and charming beauty of Kanchanaburi have resulted in major   tourist   attractions including several well-known waterfalls, caves which were once inhabited by   Neolithic   man,   pristine national parks, tranquil rivers, virgin forests, and reservoir. Together,   they offer an   intriguing   experience for first-time or repeat visitors. Whether its fishing, rafting,   canoeing,   mountain biking,   bird- watching, star-gazing, golfing, elephant and jungle trekking,   or even living   in bamboo rafts,   Kanchanaburi takes pride in offering them all.

    The city of Kanchanaburi is located at the point where two   tributaries,   the Khwae Noi and Khwae Yai meet and form the   Maenam Mae Klong.   This is the location of the notorious Death   Railway and the Bridge on   the River Khwae one of the worlds   famous World War II sites which   have been immortalized in print   and film.

    In economic terms, Kanchanaburi has been doing well on a national   scale, with over 10 per cent growth annually. Important industries   include sugar, agricultural   products and jewelry. Tourism is also a main source of income for the   locals as the provinces   high tourism potential has made Kanchanaburi number one among the   west provinces in   having the highest number of visitors each year.

    Residents of Kanchanaburi are engaged in agricultural activities. Most of the locals are of Thai   ancestry with notable Mon and Karen minorities. Rural dwellers enjoy living simply and   respecting   nature. Moreover folk music and dances dating back at least 500 years are still   performed today.

During   the Japanese occupation of Thailand in World War II, the Japanese Imperial Army brought the   iron   bridge from Java. It was then resembled by Allied Prisoners of War (POW) under Japanese   supervision. The bridge was part of a strategic railway route to Myanmar in which the Japanese   aimed to secure supplies with which to conquer other western Asian countries. It was 415   kilometers long (about 303 kilometers in Thailand and about 112 kilometers in Burma) and   passed   through the Three Pagoda Pass in Sangkhlaburi District, the northern most part of   Kanchanaburi   province.

It is estimated that over 16,000 POWs from England, Australia, Holland and   America died while building the bridge which was a target of bombing raids in 1945. In addition   to   this, approximate 90,000 laborers from Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia and Indonesia died   during its   construction.

     Pha Tat Waterfall (Namtok Pha Tat)

     A large waterfall within the area of Khuean Srinagarindra National Park located 140 km. from   Kanchanaburi. The picturesque
  3–tiered waterfall originates from a small creek on the Kala Range. Each of its 3 tiers is wide and   breathtakingly high, with a lot of water in the late rainy season. It has serene and verdant   surroundings. To get there, take Highway 323 and turn between Km. 105 – 106 toward the   same   direction as Hin Dat Hot Spring and continue for some 10 km. further.

     Pilok
     This village is located approximately 70 kilometers west of Thong Pha Phum on Route 3272. At   present, temperate fruits and decorative winter plants can be seen and bought at Pilok and the   villages en route. Only four-wheeled cars are recommended. Attractions include several   waterfalls   set in lush forests which adventurous visitors can explore on foot.
