Bangkok is a thriving metropolis and one of the most popular destinations for travellers from around the globe. A melting pot of palaces, temples, markets, street vendors, huge shopping centres and its well-known dynamic nightlife, Bangkok is a city you could stay in for days and not even see half of the sights. But, despite that, I'm going to recommend that you get out of Bangkok and see some of the amazing sights that are close enough for a day trip.One of these unmissable places is Kanchanaburi, a hugely important city north-west of Bangkok and less than 70km from the Thai-Burmese border. A lot of people wonder whether Kanchanaburi is worth visiting - read on to find out why I say YES!
