The Erawan Falls are located only a three hour drive from Bangkok and are a famous destination for day trips and tours from the Thai capital.
The Erawan Falls are arguably the most beautiful waterfalls in Thailand. They are named after the Erawan, a three-headed white elephant of Hindu mythology.
A trip over several days to the Erawan Falls might include many of the other memorable locations of Kanchanaburi, like the Bridge over the River Kwai and Hellsfire Pass. Although there are modern hotels in Kanchanaburi Town, the best way to experience the Erawan Falls and the beauty of the Kwai Noi river near the falls in Kanchanaburi is to stay on one of the floting bamboo rafts.

Around Bangkok: 3-day Erawan Jungle Trek If you love to get rugged and natural, the 3-day Erawan Jungle Trek is definitely for you. On the three-day camping trip, you can venture out into the deep jungles and forests of Erawan National Park, and don't worry, you won't have to do anything odd like sleep on the ground or anything like that. This attraction, like all others of Bangkok, just wouldn't be right if the tourist was the least bit uncomfortable. You will get sleeping tents that are very comfortable, and there is even a dining tent.
