What people are saying about Kanchanaburi

A magical day from our arrival. We gave food to the elephants, we prepared their meal for them, we washed them in the river. We learn a lot about the lives of elephants and we see that they are happy. Everything was great. I recommend 200%. The excellent midday meal. Lots of choices and a snack at the end of the day. The Mahouts are all very nice. And a special mention for our CHANG guide. Anyway, go for it !!!

We spent 1 Night and 2 days. Nothing to say about the activity, the meals are very good and the guide perfect. Only downside on the 1st day, everything stops at 3pm? And dinner is at 6 p.m. We found it a bit long for our liking.
