Peace in the Day!

This city is pretty close to Bangkok. I stayed here for around one and a half days. It’s a small city when compared with Bangkok but to look at the places of interest you would at least need a bike or a car.
The thing which first comes to mind is the River Kwai, inspired by the movie the bridge over the river kwai. The scene especially to watch is inspiring at evening time over the calm waters and if one needs to get away from all the hassles then I think this city is worth to go for a day or two. The colonial railway is a place of interest with a lot of Japanese tourists visiting it as well as the museum around it. Besides far from the city is the place where one can go to view the widest tree in the world; that’s what they say. The tree is very wide. I biked all over there and it was one long trip. Anyways there is also an elephant sanctuary to go to if one wants to see how they train these huge creatures but don’t get too near these behemoths, they can crumple you!!
The place I stayed in kanchanburi was the place where most of the small hotels are located and this area at night transforms into a great party place with a great jovial atmosphere as most of the travelers come here to escape the city life an laze till its night time.
