Heritage Walking Street

Area in Kanchanaburi

A stroll along this enchanting street offers a glimpse of a bygone Kanchanaburi. Many buildings date to the interwar period. Though worn by the passage of time, their Sino-Portuguese, Thai, Vietnamese and Chinese styles have been preserved; yellow signs reveal their history, architecture and current owners. The walk begins at the restored City Gate.

Highlights include the elegant parapets of Sirichumsang Shophouse (1932), the gold-flecked former jewellery shop Chansiri House (1927) and the Chinese-style Kanchanaburi Hotel (1937), which retains its original coloured glass.
