3. Experience the sad history of Kanchanaburi
Kanchanaburi is a province filled with so much history and beauty. It’s mostly known for the Death Railway bridge that was built during World War 2, and the tragic deaths of the prisoners that were forced to build this bridge over the River Kwai. Even though this might put quite a damper on those romantic vibes, don’t overlook Kanchanaburi.
The reason why it made it onto the list of most romantic destinations in Thailand is because of the Erawan National Park and Sai Yok National Park. Erawan waterfalls is a 7 tier waterfall and it gets more romantic with every tier you climb up. We recommend visiting early to take the relaxing hike while avoiding the crowd and experience its incredible natural beauty. You are allowed to swim in some of the pools of water and what is more romantic than swimming under a waterfall. Sai Yok National Park is especially known for Sai Yok Yai and Sai Yok Lek waterfalls, Dao Wadung Cave, Khang Khao Cave, and Lawa Cave. If you want to make the best of your stay in Kanchanaburi, we would recommend renting a car or getting a personal tour guide that can take you to where you would like to go.
Best time to visit Kanchanaburi
The best time to visit Kanchanaburi would be right after the rainy season, so any time from November to February. Because it’s known for its beautiful waterfalls, you want to be there when the waterfalls have the most water. However, Kanchanaburi is beautiful all year round, and the waterfalls don’t dry out. We do, however, recommend avoiding Kanchanaburi during April because it’s the peak of summer.
