Kanchanaburi & River Kwai - 2 Days

death railway

Just a bit over 120 kilometers from Bangkok, to the northwest, is a city called Kanchanaburi, located along a junction of rivers, including the Meklang, which is better known as Menam Kwae or the River Kwai. There is a rather awkward-looking railway bridge over the river with gently arched spans reaching out from each shore and with two central, sharply angled spans completing the bridge in the middle.

Day 1
Bangkok - Kanchanaburi - River Kwai (L/D)

Pick up from your hotel in Bangkok and depart by road, driving westward for Kanchanaburi, the journey will take you through rural areas. Your first stop will be to visit the interactive Thailand–Burma Railway Centre museum, an information and research facility dedicated to presenting the history of the Thailand–Burma Railway, the fully air–conditioned center offers visitors an educational and moving experience. Later visit the Allied War Cemetery which is memorial to some 6000 allied prisoners of war (POWs) who perished along the death railway line and were moved post-war to this eternal resting place. Continue to the world famous Bridge over the River Kwai, a part of Death Railway constructed by Allied POWs.

Board a long–tailed boat as you glide up the River Kwai to the River Kwai Resotel where you will check in and enjoy lunch. Shortly after we get back on the boat and travel further up stream to the ethnic Mon Tribal Village & Temple, learning about their culture & lifestyle.
