If you want to go to a quiet place for a cool greenery-surrounded resort, head towards the resotel. It is just so pleasant to sit outside your room and do nothing but enjoy the birds chirping and the fresh air. It's refreshing for the soul.Quick Tips: Go in December or January. The weather then is very cool and nice, and the air is very refreshing, especially so in the resotel, which is built in the middle of the jungle.Best Way To Get Around: It is not easy to get to the resotel and they do not do land transfers. In order to get there, we had to hire our own local taxi (converted pick-up), which brought us to the resotel pier along the river Kwai. We also had somebody...Read More

If not for the pier at the "resotel," anybody going down the river will be hard-pressed to spot this resort so well camouflaged among the lush jungle along the river.

For some light action, we rented some bicycles and went of a biking trip in the surroundings areas of farmlands and mountains. The cool climate and pleasant scenery made it a peaceful biking experience. A side attraction would be a visit to the Lawa caves, entrance fees is 200 B per person, and you will be brought into quite a cave system full of stalactites and stalagmites which take thousands of years to form. The lawa cave also consists of large chambers that have various names, one of which is aptly called the music room. Strike the stalactites there, and you could actually make music out of it. Watch out also in the lawa cave for the “monkeys and the crocodile”. Not of the animal kingdom, but ...Read More
