City Pillar directions
Kanchanaburi is the capital of Kanchanaburi Province. The town of Kanchanaburi is about 129km (81mi) west of Bangkok (over a good road, approximately 2 hours by bus or slightly longer by car) at the point two tributaries, the Kwai Noi and Kwai Yai (which have their source in the Ta Now Sri Range) meet and form the Mae Klong River. The present provincial capital is a relatively new town built by King Rama III (reigned 1824-1851) in 1833. The old town was 18km (11mi) away.
The City Pillar in the Kanchanaburi town attracts people due to its artistic carvings and colourful painting.
