I picked up the minibus from the Ratanacosin hotel. It actually had the Royal hotel written on it which led to me wandering around in the rain for half an hour because I had been told to look for the Ratanacosin. I gave this dodgy looking bloke 120 Baht (he was literally just sitting on a stool under an umbrella next to a sign written in marker pen …

After a crazy night in Kan Chan with Shaun, one of the Tiger Temple volunteers who has been travelling for 15 months straight and has effectively ran out of money so is stranded here! we got up early for another back-of-the-van taxi trip, this time to Erawan Waterfalls about 65km away in the mountains.

    Very cheap, 75 TB for a single room, shared bathroom. Awesome right on the river, great for a swim, it is so hot here. Cheapest restaurant in town, food is nice, great value for money. Sugar member bar is close by, jolly frog is a great place to make friends and chill out. BE VERY CAREFUL, YOU CAN EASILY GET STUCK HERE FOR LONGER THEN PLANNED, great place.

    Good clean,nice accomodation and very reasonable. It's right on the river with amazing views and awesome garden. Staff weren't too friendly though and service in the restaurant was poor.

    Jolly Frog was definitely one of the place in Kanchanaburi with the best value for the money. Good rooms, great view of the water, nice surroundings and garden at the back and close to all the fun stuff on the strip. Highly recommended.
