Full description
History lovers visiting Thailand will value this opportunity to tour the region of Kanchanaburi in West Thailand. During this memorable day trip from Bangkok, you’ll visit the Death Railway which was put on the map by the 1957 movie, Bridge Over the River Kwai.

You’ll begin the day by getting immersed in Thailand’s rich bounty at one of the country’s best-loved national parks, Erawan National Park. Walking trails, running water, and undisturbed wildlife characterize this peaceful area. Erawan Waterfall has seven tiers and a set of limestone caves at its base: you'll forget all about the busy streets of Bangkok. This natural paradise is the perfect place to breathe in the fresh country air.

Continue to JEATH Museum, dedicated to the Allied Prisoners of War who died building the Burmese railway. This museum is a sad yet important reminder of Thailand’s history; it’s thought that over 100,000 lives were lost during this period. JEATH is an acronym for the main nationalities involved in the building of the railway: Japanese, English, Australian, American, Thai and Dutch.

Finally, you’ll visit the historic Bridge over the River Kwai. You’ll get the chance to walk over the bridge, soak up the impressive scenery, and take a moment to remember the past, before returning to your accommodations/meeting point at approximately 8:00 PM.

Great! I loved this experience. My guide Bonnie was very friendly and professional. I was the only on on that tour that day and I'm glad that the company did not cancel. I have a private visit so and it was sooooo nice. Bonnie take well care of me and take a lot of pictures of me during all the trip, always with the smile. Best tour I had in Thailand

I had a great day visiting the river Kwai bridge then the Erawan falls, under the guidance of our guide Judi from TripGuru. We were only two clients and travelled comfortably by car. Highlight of the day was the Erawan falls. Downside was the 3 1/2 trip back to Bangkok. Perhaps leaving the park a bit later would have helped avoiding most traffic jams.

Nancy was a really great guide and offered help with everything! The driver was also very nice and I really liked this trip. It’s a good day drip from Bangkok.
