GadlingTV's Travel Talk - Thailand Part 10: Kanchanaburi


Gadling TV's Travel Talk, episode 40 – Click above to watch video after the jump

In the first half of Travel Talk's grand Thai expedition, we've tamed elephants, explored Bangkok's temples, eaten scorpions, taken in a Muay Thai match, and witnessed a train running directly through a bustling market. Now, we're taking you to explore a lesser known province of Thailand for a closer look at the culture and traditions of rural Thai life.

Kanchanaburi isn't the first place you might think to visit when planning your trip to Thailand- but in many ways, that's its charm. We explore this peaceful oasis just outside of Bangkok. The town promises to change dramatically with the recent reopening of the Three Pagodas Border Crossing to Myanmar, and we stayed in a massive 5-star resort that's anticipating this very change. Exploring the local landmarks, we got a chance to walk across the Bridge over River Kwai- of classic hollywood fame.
