Sai Yok Noi is a waterfall in the Tenasserim Hills, Sai Yok District of Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand, near the town Nam Tok Sai Yok Noi. It is the most popular attraction of the Sai Yok National Park.[1] It is popular among domestic and foreign tourists alike, in part because it lies next to the province's trunk road alongside which there is ample parking space.

The immediate vicinity features several sites of interest including the Krasae Cave, a small Buddhist shrine next to a section of rail tracks of the Death Railway and, to the west, Dawadung Cave, a secluded collection of stalactites. Hellfire Pass Memorial, a museum and tribute to those lost during the construction of the Death Railway's cuttings and trestle bridges, lies about 35 km to the west of Sai Yok Noi falls. A small market geared toward travellers is also nearby. Sai Yok Yai waterfall, some 40 km to the west lies offset from the valley's main road, adjacent to the Sai Yok National Park Headquarters. It comprises a 10-metre (32 ft) picturesque cascade which drops directly into the Kwae Noi River.
