Pilok is a remote little town up in the hills (mountains) of Kanchanaburi Province in northwestern Thailand. This tiny town is a great place to experience the natural beauty of the lush forests of the Tenasserim Hills that form the natural border with Burma. Getting to Pilok takes a bit of effort as the road is small, overgrown, windy, and riddled with giant potholes. The Thailand Tourism Bureau recommends a four wheel drive vehicle to get here. The way to Pilok is full of natural vistas and once in Pilok you can walk around the village, see the small temple, and enjoy the mountain air. There are few places to see the sunrise and sunset while taking in the natural beauty and fresh air. The people of Pilok are fantastic and extremely nice. Unfortunately for me, I had an accident where I fell and dislocated my shoulder. The entire town helped get me to a clinic and eventually a hospital. Pilok is a great place to just relax and experience Thai culture at its best.
Please note: I don’t have any actual photos of Pilok itself because of my accident.
