Full description
After pickup, the first stop is the Bridge On The River Kwai, part of the Siam-Burma Railway built by WWII prisoners of war. Walk along the “Death Railway” bridge of Hollywood fame, learning about its historical and cultural significance.

Next, head to Wat Tham Seua, a Buddhist temple perched atop a mountain. Known as the Tiger Cave Temple, it was named after the tiger paw prints found on the cave walls. Climb to the top and take in the gorgeous scenery, marvel at the large gleaming statue of Buddha, and explore the main temple area.

The next stop is Wat Bang Kung. Built during the Ayutthaya period, this Buddhist temple is covered in the roots and branches of nearby Banyan trees, making it seem like a hidden ruin in the forest. Take a peek at the golden Buddha statue inside and snap photos of the iconic entrance.

Finally, make your way to the Amphawa Floating Market. Board a boat and cruise down the river as you interact with vendors paddling on their small boats loaded with produce. Soak up the sights of the river, shop for some souvenirs, or buy passing street food to eat on the trip back to Kanchanaburi.
