5 / 5 total 12 reviews
Duration: 10 hours
Product code: 3303
Overview

Kanchanaburi is also the gateway to the surrounding province of the same name.  There is an increasingly thriving backpacker scene taking advantage of the chilled-out riverside vibe for those that need to get away from Bangkok. More foreign visitors are discovering why they know it as one of the most beautiful provinces in the country with its easily accessible waterfalls and national parks.

Meet up in the hotel lobby (in the Bangkok area), we will visit the Kanchanaburi Allied War Cemetary. 


Visit the JEATH War Museum to get an impression about life in Asia during World War II.

Visit Chinese temple near the bridge over the River Kwai. See the historical Bridge over the River Kwai and you can capture some of an impressive collection here.

Ride the Burma Railway, built by the Empire of Japan to support its forces in World War II. Visit the ThamKrasea Buddha Cave, (also known as the “Death Railway” and “Burma-Siam Railway).
Lunch will be served here (ThamKrasea Station).

Next, go to the ThamKrasea cave to see the small statue of a Buddha. We will go to Waltham Sue & WatThamKhaoNoi.
Return to Bangkok at the end of a long and fulfilling day for a hotel drop off and the end of your trip.

Well worth it the visit and surprisingly emotional. Seen the pictures etc but to actually see the bridge was great. The POWs really did have a hard time and should get more recognition for what they had to do to survive and thousands didn’t.

This tour was everything I hoped it would be. It provided a lot of information on the railway and bridge and got a trip on the train which was special. Lunch was also very enjoyable.
