Central Thailand & the River Kwai Tour

Description

Lots of visitors to Thailand are happy to spend most or all of their holiday time relaxing at one of the many beautiful beach resorts that have made the country so popular. But there is so much to see and do at this exotic destination and this short trip to the famous 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 it can be combined easily with a stay in the capital city Bangkok.

Day 1
Bangkok to Uthai Thani

An early start to the day when you are picked up from your hotel in Bangkok and taken to visit Bang Pa In, the former Royal Summer Residence of King Rama V. Continue by road and stop at one of Ayuthaya’s most beautiful temples. Lunch is at a local restaurant and in the afternoon continue to Uthai Thani, a small town on the Sakaekrang River, rarely visited by foreign tourists where you see an impressive temple with crystal hall and golden shrine. Then drive to your resort hotel where there are lots of activities on offer before dinner.

Day 2
Uthai Thani to Kanchanaburi

After breakfast leave for Kanchanaburi via Suphanburi arriving in time for lunch at a restaurant near the Bridge over the River Kwai. Then you are taken to Hell Fire Pass and its War Memorial Museum, which is a joint Australian -Thai facility and contains pictures and tools used by prisoners, audio-visual displays, and interactive exhibits. There is a scenic walking trail through a narrow cutting down to Hell Fire Pass which allied POWs cut through solid rock. Later take a short boat ride to River Kwai Resotel for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 3
Kanchanaburi to Sampran Riverside

After breakfast the morning is free for you to relax before catching the noon train at Wang Po for a ride along the infamous Death Railway to Tha Kilen station. Afterwards you are taken to visit the Thai Burmese Railway Centre, an interactive museum, research and information centre dedicated to presenting the chilling story of the Thailand-Burma Railway. Then drive on to Nakorn Pathom and visit Phra Pathom Chedi, which is said to be the tallest pagoda in Southeast Asia. You stay tonight at the Sampran Riverside hotel with dinner included.
