Waterfall · Hidden Gem · National Park
Sai Yok Noi is a waterfall, also known as Khao Phang Waterfall, in the Tenasserim Hills, Sai Yok District of Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand, near the town Nam Tok Sai Yok Noi. It is the most popular attraction of the Sai Yok National Park.

The waterfall consists of the limestone cliffs collapsing and that became the origin of the name "Khao Phang Waterfall”. The upstream falls from the mountain and flows along the limestone cliffs about 15-meter high. It is popular among domestic and foreign tourists alike, in part because it lies next to the province's trunk road alongside which there is ample parking space.

The Krasae Cave, a small Buddhist shrine next to a section of rail tracks of the Death Railway and the Dawadung Cave, a secluded collection of stalactites, are located near the waterfall. Hellfire Pass Memorial, a museum and tribute to those lost during the construction of the Death Railway's cuttings and trestle bridges, lies about 35 km to the west of Sai Yok Noi falls. A small market geared toward travelers is also nearby. Sai Yok Yai waterfall, some 40 km to the west lies offset from the valley's main road, adjacent to the Sai Yok National Park Headquarters. It comprises a 10-metre (32 ft) picturesque cascade which drops directly into the Kwae Noi River.

  • Not a big waterfall directly next to highway 323 with beautiful surrounding. Not far from the fall there is a quasi historic train locomotive to view. Though the waterfall is part of the Sai Yok Yai....  more »
  • I'll start by saying that the high admission price of 300b also includes the rest of the national park, which I have reviewed separately. This waterfall however is really nothing special. I visited...  more »
  • Almost on Rout 323 moderate size waterfall with creek in beautiful surrounding. There is a short trail that takes you to quasi historic train locomotive. You can easily park on the street and walk directly to the waterfall. There is no dedicated parking lot. Not must see waterfall but worth looking at if passing through the area.
  • A pleasant little waterfall that is a popular place for locals to go swimming. Many tour buses also stop here as there is a street market daily across the road for snacks, and it’s just a short and easy stroll to the waterfall - no mountains to climb. Worth a stop on a hot day on the way to attractions further out.
