Meet an Adorable Tour Guide at Khoa Poon Cave in Kanchanaburi, Thailand

FROM WIKIPEDIA:

Kanchanaburi (Thai: กาญจนบุรี (Pronunciation)) is the largest of the western provinces (changwat) of Thailand. Neighboring provinces are (from north clockwise) Tak, Uthai Thani, Suphan Buri, Nakhon Pathom and Ratchaburi. In the west it borders Kayin State, Mon State and Tanintharyi Region of Myanmar.

A province in the Central Plains, Kanchanaburi borders Burma to the west with the Tanaosi range as a borderline. It is frequented by tourists who have been attracted by its long history and ancient civilizations, a location of the Bridge over the River Khwae — ‘Kwai’ as it is known internationally and scene of the historic World War II. Producers of the movie the Bridge Over the River Kwae are guilty of giving the river and bridge both the wrong spelling and mis-pronunciaton. It is pronounced ‘Kwae’ as in the English word ‘Hair’. The province is also famous for its natural attractions such as forests, mountains, caves and waterfalls.
