    Hi all, sick of the boring ride from Kanchanaburi south to Hua Hin by Highway 4?

    Below is the route I have taken a few times to beat the boredom and danger.
    It may add up to an hour to your trip (say minimum 3 hours) but there is plenty to see along the way, it is all single lane country roads, flat with a few bends to keep you awake. (just follow the route in blue)


    Take road 18 just out of Kanchanaburi, this turns south and leads into a number of well marked rural roads (see map above) keep riding south until you are on road 3432 you will eventually come to a cross roads, turn right to KAENG KRACHEN National Park, there is also a race track on a turn off to the right along this road, which can be hired for 1000bht a day.
    Turn left and you will eventually get to THA YANG, just north of CHA AM.
    Keep going south and you will get to Highway 4, not far from HAU HIN.

    Good stuff! There are some fantastic roads around Kaeng Krachan National Park and Kaeng Krachan Circuit is a lot of fun too!
