Description

Lots of visitors to Thailand are happy to spend most or all of their holiday time relaxing in the sun at one of the many beautiful beach resorts that have made the country popular. But there is so much to see and do at this exotic destination and this two day trip to the Bridge over the River Kwai, and the fascinating jungle area around it, really gives you a genuine feel for life in south east Asia. And as the tour begins and ends in Bangkok, it makes a great add on to any longer visit to the capital.

Day 1
Bangkok to the River Kwai

An early pick up from your city hotel for the journey to Kanchanaburi. Visit the war museum, the cemetery of the allied prisoners of World War 11, and stop at the world famous Bridge over the River Kwai. Then take a long-tailed boat trip to the River Kwai Jungle Rafts or River Kwai Resotel, passing unspoiled mountainous jungle scenery. After lunch at the hotel take an exciting boat ride downstream and visit the Hell Fire Pass Memorial. Tonight after dinner at your hotel enjoy a presentation of traditional tribal dances by the villagers.

Day 2
The River Kwai to Bangkok

After breakfast you can visit a Mon tribal village or go elephant riding through the bamboo forest. Then return to your hotel, check out, and enjoy lunch at the pier. In the aftenoon you are taken to the nearby railway station for a memorable and historical ride on the Death Railway during which you pass over the original wooden viaduct which was built by Allied POWs. After this moving experience you begin the journey back to Bangkok where you are dropped off at your hotel. This short tour is a real must while staying in Bangkok.

Flew to Bangkok

Minor thing but would have been useful to know that you can't leave an Indian airport check-in hall after you enter. We went in to see if check-in was open for our connecting flight and it wasn't for another 5 hours but we were then stuck in the airport.
