Most hotels inKanchanaburi are along the river - couple of expensive golf clubs" ouiut of town and the option of house-boats on the river.....try Googling for details.

If you are thinking of going to the Tiger Temple - PLEASE DON"T or at least read this first.....

Chiang Mai, 150 baht for double room is very cheap. I stayed someplace near the Primavera restaurant, its inside the SQUARE or city wall. Its a nice hotel with a garden and bar...

THE TAPAI GATE has a lot of options...

If you want something for 100 baht.... find TAWAN hotel... where? its in the area pass the tapai gate.

take the 150! you get your own bathroom.

As a fellow crinkly I assume that you want a bit of comfort, above backpacker price but not excessively expensive, and reasonably close to the main tourist area.

Using those criteria I would suggest that you look at Raming Lodge in Chiang Mai. It is very close to the central walled city - about a couple of hundred yards from one of the main gates, close to the Night Market, and priced about 20-25 pounds per night for a double with b,fast. Rating is 3 star. You could book it through Priceline Europe or Asia Rooms. The former allow you to pay on arrival.

Cany help with the other location Im afraid.
