We left for Kanchanaburi late, around noon, and caught a public bus (first class so it was pretty nice) for the two-hour ride to Kanchan. We arrived at like 5 and caught a taxi to the hotel (it was more of a bed and breakfast and only cost 5$ a night!) and found out that most of the attractions were closed. We decided to eat dinner at the hotel and …
Tim had booked us into City Lodge, Bangkok and the following morning, after a lovely sleep in an oh so comfortable bed, Tim and Pensri came to pick us up around 10am and we left Bangkok, heading for Kanchanaburi.
Both my brother and I had been there before. Our father had fought in World War II, been captured at the fall of Singapore and …
We left Bangkok in a pleasant mini-bus with 9 other people and set out for the more-than-a-little touristy town of Kanchanaburi, made famous by the movie "A bridge over the river Kwai" and infamous for it's "Death Railway". I didn't really think about it, but we arrived in Kaan on December 7... D-day.
D day. A day that will live in infamy …
The day we left Bangkok for here was hot! We opted to get the train the short hop toKanchanaburi.For a couple of reasons, primarily we were sick of stuffy buses, we thought we'd rock it with the locals, plus it was the beginning of the historic railway built under the horrendous Japanese regime.
We had to take a taxi to Thonburi …
Jag har varit i Thailand i 1½ dag nu och jag tycker verkligen att dom gjort sig förtjänta av sitt namn "The land of smiles".

How has this hotel rated in the past?
this is a review for Apple's Retreat over the bridge from the main road - there is another closer in town.
The staff at Apples Retreat are wonderful and the Restaurant serves lovely food. The rooms are adequate, if not a little uncomfortable - very firm beds and they only clean the rooms every 3 days (which meant they didn't clean our room or change our towels once during our stay). They are environmentally conscience, but really? Don't bother there for breakfast as a cup of tea will put you back 85 baht instead of 20 baht down the street.
I think they are just getting used to the ropes in their new expanded place, so this is a mixed review, but I would try them again.
