Floating Market & River Kwai

The floating market in Bangkok became world famous after it was used in a legendary James Bond scene. It was here Roger Moore milled around in a longtail boat in pursuit of villains. Today it is a major tourist attraction in the Bangkok area despite the fact that the market is actually located in Samut Songkhram, an hour's drive southwest of the city.

The Floating Market (Damnoen Saduak) consists of a number of small canals, filled with small boats managed by cunning Thai ladies always ready to sell their products and fight for the best position with their competition. The floating market is hot, humid, and busy, but incredibly fun!

Another major tourist attraction, which is offered along with the Floating Market, is the bridge on the River Kwai located near the town of Kanchanaburi. The Bridge on the River Kwai is the main reason for the area's popularity. It is of course the story of the construction of the Death Railway and the Bridge on the River Kwai that makes the city interesting. In 1942-43, when the Japanese occupied Thailand, they wanted a railway from Bangkok to Rangoon in Burma. To do the hard work they used Allied prisoners of war, mostly from England, but also from Australia. In addition, 250,000 Asian slave laborers were imported. Japanese engineers had calculated that it would take five years to build the 415 km long railway; the POWs were given 16 months.

River Kwai and the history of the Death Railway make the city of Kanchanaburi extremely popular.
