Sangkhlaburi is a small town located about 5 hours Northwest of Bangkok in the province of Kanchanaburi, only 25 km from the Burmese border. Home of the famous Three Pagodas Pass, the area has a strong Burmese cultural influence.

Sangkhlaburi has played an important role in the history between Thailand and Burma (Myanmar) and also has the longest wooden bridge in the country.

This is a haven of serenity and a superb place to unwind, relax, eat, and wander about.

Sangkhlaburi has a lot of natural attractions such as Karen and Mon villages, caves, waterfalls, the vast Thung Yai Naresuan wildlife reserve, Khao Lam National Park and the Khao Lam Dam which flooded a valley of Sangkhlaburi and also parts of the old city.

The old half sunken temple is a beautiful scenic area especially at sunset and sunrise. Local hill tribes (Mon) build most of their houses on the water as raft-houses. The people there impress with their charm and their natural kindness.
