For a trip that will always exceed expectations, head to the bijou northern town of Kanchanaburi - ever a revelation for passing visitors. Pitched at the confluence of Kwai Noi and Kwai Yai, Kanchanaburi is most famous for its notorious rail route and bridge, built by Allied prisoners under the direction of the Japanese during World War II. For a thorough chronicling, don’t miss the two museums and memorials paying tribute to its dark history.
That said, Kanchanaburi holidays don’t focus solely on its past. Head to Erawan National Park and you’ll find something else entirely: thick rainforest, pounding waterfalls, dreamy lagoons and subterranean treks winding past stalactites.
