Thanks to tripadvisor, we made it to Kanchanburi - primarily because the reviews of Oriental Kwai were so inviting, and we wanted to experience it. And it was well worth the detour. We spent just 3 nites here, and though out of town a bit, after a grueling day of travel from Bangkok, it was great to arrive in this calm, serene oasis on the River Kwai. We relaxed and swam, ate at the Inn where the food was great and reasonably priced, took a day trip to see the sights, and visited the local massage "temple" that Evelyn had recommended. The individual bungalows were lovely, decorated simply but with attention to detail; The resort is relatively new. Every detail had been taken care of by owners Evelyn and Joe, and we appreciated it all. We'll be back when we visit Thailand next!
