About 2 years I was in Kanchanaburi for Songkran and had a lot of fun. I crossed the river on a wee ferry and stayed at a place pretty close to the ferry dock. I would like to do something similar, but have a notoriously poor memory, can't find anything about the ferry and where it is and can't remember the name of the guesthouse. Did I dream the whole thing up or is there a little ferry across the river in Kanchanaburi? It's not out of the question that I did all this in another town altogeth ...
