Has anyone taken the train/ bus from Damnoen Saduak to Kanchanaburi in the same day? I would prefer to stay as far away from Bangkok as possible, but was wondering if this is even doable? Any advice?

Hmmm, unless you rent a car, looks like you will have to go to Bangkok...

Wikitravel says that you can get there by bus from a few places, but not in the area you want to go there from...

TripAdvisor recommends leaving from Bangkok as well.

Not sure I understand the question. If you're talking about going direct and keeping clear of Bangkok I can't see why not. I actually can't remember if I took the bus or train but I went from Kanchanaburi to Damnoen Saduak and back to Kanchanaburi in the same day..

Ok I've just checked the blog. It took four modes of transport to get there. But I still can't remember getting there (was in transit a lot around that time). Hope this helps..

We hired a cap from bangkok for 2000 Baht and went to the floating market then to kanchanbur then to the tiger temple and back to bangkok we were 4 people so it was worth the deal.

Damnernsaduak is a district in Ratchburee so if you want to connect to Kanchanaburee you have to go to Ratchburee bus station from Damnernsaduak by songtaew or etc.then take the local bus or slow bus without aircon between Ratburee-Kanchanaburee ,it 's terreible way for traveller.

By the way , perhaps there are vans between there to Kan.
