Full description
Day 1: In the early morning at 7:30AM, your personal guide and driver will meet you at your hotel lobby in Bangkok. You will begin with a visit to the floating market of Damnoen Saduak. Close to the market you will board a fast long-tail boat, which will bring you through the narrow "khlongs" to the market. At the market you will enjoy watching farmers selling fruit and many kinds of local products in their boats. If you want, you can take one of the paddle boats to cruise through the market (optional). Following this great experience, you will continue your trip to the bridge over the River Kwai, the Allied Forces Cemetery, and the JEATH war museum. You will then travel once more by long-tail boat to the Jungle Raft, a unique, floating hotel in the middle of the jungle, made from wood and bamboo. The resort offers a unique accommodation experience right on the flowing Kwai Noi River. All floating rooms are tucked into a floating bamboo lodge moored along the historic River Kwai Noi and surrounded by lush green mountains and jungle. At this "floatel", the historic River Kwai Noi flows underneath your bed. The walls are weaved from local bamboo decorated with wooden furniture reflecting the Mon living style (hotel subject to availability). Day 2: Following breakfast, your guide will take you by long-tail boat back to your private vehicle. After another 45 minutes to 1 hour of travel will take you to Erawan National Park, where you will find the most beautiful waterfalls in Thailand: the Erawan Waterfalls. The waterfall consists of 7 plateaus, and you can hike to the highest level through a small jungle path. After reaching the top, you will still have plenty of time to discover the natural fish spas, see the natural shaped slides, and go for a swim. Following lunch, you will be taken back to your hotel in Bangkok.

We enjoyed the excursion and the whole schedule. The Jungle Rafts were a great experience. The no electricity was a great way to have my whole family disconnect from the world for a couple days. The food was a little disappointing since we were expecting authentic Thai food. But the Jungle Raft served good that suite Europeans (eggs, sausage. Toast). The floating markets were really cool. We actually bought things from vendors on boats. The tour guide was a little dry and didn’t talk too much, but I definitely have had worse. He was nice and well mannered.

The tour guide Nira was great. We were able to explore all stations on our own. But she was always there for all questions and tips and kept an eye on the schedule. The war museum does not necessarily have to be. But the Floating Hotel is a great experience. (especially without electricity ;) )

It was a great tour - and I would recommend taking 3 days tour, to extend this amazing experience. We had a great guide with personal touch who really cares to make it a memorable experience . The jungle rafts hotel is really cool - just be prepared for no internet, and electricity - unplug and enjoy the nature. We highly recommend this tour.
