Bangkok: Kanchanaburi, River Kwai & Death Railway Tour

1. Bangkok: Kanchanaburi, River Kwai & Death Railway Tour

Make the most of your day of adventure and start early with a smooth pickup from Bangkok. Catch up on sleep in the comfy air-conditioned van on the way to your first stop, the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery. Walk along the perfectly kept grounds as you honor the fallen soldiers and prisoners of war and civilians who died while working on the infamous Death Railway (Siam-Burma Railway) under the Japanese Empire. Head to the JEATH Museum, built to commemorate those who lost their lives while working on the railway during World War II. The JEATH War Museum was named after the nationalities of those that worked on the railway: Japanese, English, Australian, American, Thai, and Hollander. Examine exhibits from the war such as weapons, tools, uniforms, medals, and replicas of the living conditions the prisoners of war lived in. Make a quick stop at the Bridge over the River Kwai, where you’ll experience the subject of your earlier history lessons. At Tham Krasae Station, a picturesque railway section that snakes around a cliff, admire the views, see the trains pass by, and fill up on some tasty lunch. Enjoy a quick coffee break before stopping at Wat Tham Suea, otherwise known as the Tiger Cave Temple. Don’t miss the tiger paw prints on its cave walls and the large, gleaming, 18-meter-tall Buddha statue at the top. Make the steep hike and be rewarded with a close-up view of the statue as well as the impressive scenery of the surrounding landscape. After exploring and taking photos at Wat Tham Suea (Tiger Cave Temple), begin your journey back to Bangkok, with some of Thailand’s unforgettable history engraved in your mind.

Thanks to our sympathetic guide Nuch we had a very informative and exciting day. She adapts the program to your personal taste and gives you all the time you need. Our day consisted of visiting the war victim cemetery in Kanchanaburi, the two bridges where the POW and local labourers worked on, and Hell Fire Pass. It is a real convenience that you are picked up from the lobby of your own hotel and that you are returned there in the evening. Nuch is very helpful and flexible. Thanks to Nuch we had a nice meal at a local eatery. The friendly driver maneuvered us safely through the traffic.

Auntie Nancy was a really lively and energetic person, able to bring up the atmosphere and giving detailed explanation of the history of the place, will definitely recommend anyone else to join this tour, you will enjoy it!

The tour was well organized, our guide Niranya was very friendly and told us a lot about the country and its people. Unfortunately, the drive is a bit long because of the traffic, but nobody can do anything about it.

Nicky has been very attentive at all times. He explained everything to us in great detail and was very kind. He took very good pictures of us.
