Historical Street sights in Kanchanaburi
- Sort by:
Set within the heart of the old town, more than 20 yellow signs tell the history and architecture of this fascinating street. Set aside at least an hour to stroll and note the variety of buildings, which include Sino-Portuguese, Thai and Chinese styles. Former residents include Boonpong Sirivejabhand, who helped POWs send messages back home during WWII using secret codes. Many shops date from the turn of the 20th century and are still owned by the same family. Look out for the erstwhile hotel that, back in the good old days, charged 1B per night.
