Review of Tara B&B in Kanchanabari, Thailand


Where We Slept is our hotel roundup from our time on the road. We hope it helps budget travelers see how far their dollar can go--even though sometimes, it's not far enough!

You can get a lot for your money in Kanchanaburi, and the best way to ensure you get what you're looking for is to get to town and walk around. We arrived hot and tired from Bangkok, so we settled for T&T Guesthouse, a simple room with a private bath and AC for 500B/night.

When we saw how hot it was the next morning, we set out in search of a pool. Even though Kanchanaburi is set on the banks of the infamous River Kwai, the river isn't swimmable, so a pool was a must. We settled on Tara B&B, although Ploy also looked quite nice. For 670B/night, we got a beautiful room with water bottles, AC, a really nice bathroom, and a pool set on the shore of the river. We ended up staying three nights, partially because of how nice the bed was.
