Thong Pha Phum

Getting there and away


The bus station is located just south off the main road through town, a five-minute walk south of the market. All buses and minibuses from Kanchanaburi to Sangkhlaburi stop in Thong Pha Phum for a five-minute break.

Regular buses from Kanchanaburi should take 2.5 hours, air-con buses should take two hours, and minibuses should take about 1.5 hours. When you're ready to leave, you can snag a minibus just north of KTB Bank, hop on a white and blue air-con or red local bus at the bus stop to the south of town, or catch one of the local buses at the market as they loop through to pick up passengers.

Yellow songthaews bound for Pilok also depart regularly from the market.
