River Kwai

River Kwai

from 499

Extension - 3 days

West of Bangkok there is what is today a beautiful nature reserve that owes its fame to the movie The Bridge on the River Kwai. Enroute to the River Kwai you visit the train and floating market. Once there you discover its chilling World War II history through a visit to the famous bridge, a ride on the Death Train original train tracks as well as the war museum. And you will find there is much more to the region that is worthwhile discovering. Just to name two: the impressive Erawan Falls National Park and the less visited pearl: the Prasat Muang Singh historical park.

Strong points:
  • A site which may may leave you dumbstruck when you

  • learn about the valor and courage of WW II heroes

  • listen to the beauty of the jungle

Day 1

Bangkok - Kanchanaburi

You leave early in the morning for Samut Songkran province and its famous train market. This market is set alongside a railroad that is still in use. You will probably stare in disbelief when a train arrives and rides millimetres past the items on sale and the stalls itself for that matter. Next you visit the floating market of Damnoen Saduak. A very touristy place, but that does not alter the fact that it is a unique experience. You drive on to Kanchanaburi for a nice lunch. Here you visit the famous bridge over the River Kwai, the cemetery and the War Museum.
