River Kwai 2 Days Tour
Kanchanaburi, situated in Thailand’s central plains is home of the historic Bridge over the River Kwai. Kanchanaburi is one of the most picturesque provinces in Thailand with jungle and rugged hills. For the archeologically minded it may be of interest to know, that a freak accident during World War II, led to the discovery of Neolithic burial sites in this area.
We travel west to Kanchanaburi, where we visit first the ”Jeath” museum, which is a replica of the huts of P.O.W.’S (Prisoners Of War) who lived here during their captivity. The museum displays a collection of records and pictures made by P.O.W.’S held by the Japanese during World War II.
We then take a short boat trip to see the “Bridge over the River Kwai, where we take the train over the “Death Railway”. Our train journey ends close to the Burmese border, where we have lunch.
And after we will enjoy riding elephants and rafting along Kwai Noi River. We return to town, but with a last stop along the way, to visit the War Cemetery of the Allied soldiers who died during the construction of the railway. Back to the Hotel.
