On your way to Erawan waterfalls, you will discover strange stone stores...

My experience, Explo description: 

The area is renowned for its odd stones quarries (you can see them, north, in the mountains). The huge stone blocks (up to 4m !) have natural weird animal shapes. Most of these stones are used to decorate parks.

Along the 3199 road, you can stop in numerous stores and buy such a stone... This might be a little bit heavy to carry back home... Maybe it is a better idea to buy just a stone table or a chair ! ;-)

My personal recommendations: 

You can stop in a shop along the road and walk among the huge stones, which are stored in kind of parks. If you are really interested in, you can ask to visit the quarries, located in the mountains near.

How getting there: 

Take the 3199 north from Kanchanaburi to Erawan waterfalls. Drive about 30km. A few kilometres after Wang Dong, you should see the first shops...
