3 nights in Kanchanaburi

Hiya guys,

I have been planning my trip for the last few weeks, however I struggle a bit to get info of how to get around in Kanchaburi region.

My partner and myself will be staying in Kanchanaburi from the 14th of March until the 17th of March. On the 14th we will take the earliest train from Bangkok and make our way to the Kanchanburi Train Station.

Then I booked this accommodation for our stay (note it's free to cancel until the end of next week, so if you have any others suggestions please don't hesitate).

-> Stay in Princess River Kwai for 1 night from 14h of March until 15th for $65NZD.

-> Stay in Ploy Resort/Ploy Guesthouse for 2 nights from 15th of March until 17th $98NZD.

Below are all attractions that I wanna see, I do understand they are far away to each other. I am wondering if the best option would be to hire a car. What do you think ? Have you done it ? I am looking for information on Google but can not get anything quite clear of how to do it.

Would it be better to rent a car while we will be there than trying to rent it from NZ ?

Day : option 1

- Death Railway Bridge

- Wat Tham Sua and Wat Tham Khao Noi

- Wat Ban Tham

Day : option 2

- Hellfire Pass

Day : option 3

- Erawan Falls

Befoer I wanted to stay around the Erawan Falls for a night but after reading this forum, I do have the impression that it's better to do it on a day trip (to get there enough early to enjoy without too much crowds)

Looking forward to hear from you.

Have a good day.

Hi Neil,

Aside from the advice given above I can only add that you should check out the vehicle before driving off into the wilderness of Kanchanaburi Province.
