“Invasion Route”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

The Three Pagodas are not large and impressive; but the place has historical significance. There is a difficult energetic feel to the area, it has been riddled with strife. Eat at any of the roadside stalls, the food is good. And the people! Such joy on their faces, especially if they have a baby around! Oh, and there are ladyboys here too...a little easier to spot than in Bangkok.

“What a disappointment after all these kilometers !!!”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

When you hear about the Three Pagodas Pass you think of history , mystic , drama in short worth the trip... Forget it, we drove all the way from Kanchanatburi ( more then 200km) and all you get to see are 3 tiny stupas , a big dusty square , a market with the "normal" tourist stuff and a closed border. Forget if and spend some time at other interesting sights

“Just the border of the country”
Reviewed 18 December 2012

When in Sangkhlaburi, you may invest the trip of 25 km to this place. There you can see the three white pagodas but as far as I am concerned, they are not more than three white plastered concrete elements. There are some shops in the surrounding with Birmese furniture, jewelry and food. The border is heavily protected by police.

End of the road for most travelers. Can do some shopping for nice wood products. Border post here but as of this writing Non Thai's cant enter Burma from here.
