Beyond the compact provincial capital, some 130 kms and a comfortable two-hour drive from Bangkok, where the Kwai Yai and Kwai Noi Rivers unite to form the Mae Klong River, Kanchanaburi unfolds in progressively arresting scenic beauty in a landscape characterised by several waterfalls, cave once inhabited by Neolithic man, national parks, and tranquil riverside and reservior settings.
