As one of the country’s largest western provinces, Kanchanaburi is a destination that has become synonymous
with history and natural beauty.
There are abundant museums, landmarks, rolling plains, tropical jungles and towering waterfalls. Located approximately a three-hour drive from Bangkok, the province can be easily reached by private vehicles and public transport that includes frequent buses and trains that run from central Bangkok. This convenience has made it a popular choice for both local and international visitors who enjoy exploring the area’s many attractions, including the Bridge on the River Kwai, world-famous Burma Railway and the museums that chronicle its complex history.
In addition, the area boosts an array of national parks, such as Sai Yok National Park that is famous for its limestone formations, and Erawan National Park that features emerald green lagoons and stunning waterfalls.
As a result of the area’s increased popularity, there have been significant developments in its MICE presence. Some of these developments include the establishment of well-equipped venues and hotels that are capable of hosting of varied sizes. An example is the Felix River Kwai Resort Kanchanaburi, situated on pristine riverfront land, offering 255 guestrooms and suites. The property is also equipped with a range of amenities, like stunning garden views, large swimming pools, a fitness centre and a versatile pillarless ballroom that can host up to 800 guests in theatre-style.
