Sangkhlaburi is a sleepy town of 15,000 people from many ethnic backgrounds. There are the Karen, the Mon, Thais, Chinese, Lao and even Arakanese and Bangladeshis. This ethnic diversity makes Sangkhlaburi district unique in Thailand. You will love to wander through the local markets, take a ride to Three Pagodas Pass or make a trek to remote villages outside the district town.
Sanglkhlaburi is also known for its 400m long wooden bridge that spans across the Vajiralongkorn Lake to connect the Mon village "Wang Kha" with the Thai and Karen parts of the town.
This bridge was constructed in 1993 and has even attracted Thai and foreign movie teams!
