Day 02 Kanchanaburi

After breakfast, depart for Erawan Waterfall - a beautiful seven-tiered waterfall. Located in Erawan National Park, the best time to visit is during rainy season from May until September. Guests will be able to walk up to each tier of these picturesque falls, so it is best to bring good walking shoes. Also guests should remember to bring their swimming suit so they can cool off in the falls’ natural pools. Then continue by car through the national park area to Phra That Cave - a large mountain cave filled with stunning stalactites and stalagmites.

After lunch, take a short train ride along the infamous ‘death railway’ through Kwai Noi gorge.

After breakfast at the hotel, start a day trip to Elephant World, located just half an hour from the famous River Kwai Bridge. Elephant World is a sanctuary for elephants with nowhere else to go. Here, they can enjoy the natural jungle landscape in peace and harmony.

Following a warm welcome and introduction from the volunteers at Elephant World, it’s off to meet the elephants themselves. You will be introduced to each elephant and have the opportunity to work for them under guidance from the ‘mahout’ – the local elephant handler. This includes enjoyable activities like cutting sugar cane or banana plants to feed the elephants.

After a Thai lunch at the camp, you have the incredible opportunity to take a bath with the elephants in the Kwai Yai River! Help give them a good scrub, before walking the elephants back into the camp, and then on into the forest where they will spend the night.
