You can still hear birds calling and see King Fishers on the river. The vegetation is lush and tropical. This is a place to go to get away from crowds. It's just far enough away to discourage loud obnoxious tourists.

3/5 - Okay

This area has a lot to offer and is only about three hours northwest of Bangkok. A lot of history, things to do and visit. Can recommend both as a day trip and stay overnight. Early dry season I would say is the best time to visit.
