River Kwai 3 Days
Experience the amazing River Kwai near Bangkok
Bridge Over the River Kwai is for many one of the greatest sights in Thailand. This bridge has a very special history that dates back to World War 2 when Allied prisoners of war and Asian laborers built the railway that was to become known as the “Death Railway”.
We take on this 3 day journey you to the major sights around Kanchanaburi which is located about 3 hours drive from Bangkok.
Here you will experience the Bridge Over the River Kwai, and you will gain insight into the miserable conditions of war prisoners lived in when we visit War Museum. We visit also also a Memorial Cemetery, located in a beautiful setting and is a symbol of how grumsom war can be.
We also visit Hellfire Pass which was one of the most difficult places to build the Death Railway. And we also experience a train ride on the railway where we see stunning scenery and landscape areas.
Look forward to an exciting trip to one of Thailand’s most exciting areas of River Kwai.
