During this memorable day trip from Bangkok, visit the Death Railway which was put on the map by the 1957 movie, 'Bridge Over the River Kwai.'

Bangkok: Kanchanaburi, River Kwai & Death Railway Tour

2. Bangkok: Kanchanaburi, River Kwai & Death Railway Tour

Make the most of your day of adventure and start early with a smooth pickup from Bangkok. Catch up on sleep in the comfy air-conditioned van on the way to your first stop, the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery. Walk along the perfectly kept grounds as you honor the fallen soldiers and prisoners of war and civilians who died while working on the infamous Death Railway (Siam-Burma Railway) under the Japanese Empire. Head to the JEATH Museum, built to commemorate those who lost their lives while working on the railway during World War II. The JEATH War Museum was named after the nationalities of those that worked on the railway: Japanese, English, Australian, American, Thai, and Hollander. Examine exhibits from the war such as weapons, tools, uniforms, medals, and replicas of the living conditions the prisoners of war lived in. Make a quick stop at the Bridge over the River Kwai, where you’ll experience the subject of your earlier history lessons. At Tham Krasae Station, a picturesque railway section that snakes around a cliff, admire the views, see the trains pass by, and fill up on some tasty lunch. Enjoy a quick coffee break before stopping at Wat Tham Suea, otherwise known as the Tiger Cave Temple. Don’t miss the tiger paw prints on its cave walls and the large, gleaming, 18-meter-tall Buddha statue at the top. Make the steep hike and be rewarded with a close-up view of the statue as well as the impressive scenery of the surrounding landscape. After exploring and taking photos at Wat Tham Suea (Tiger Cave Temple), begin your journey back to Bangkok, with some of Thailand’s unforgettable history engraved in your mind.

Overall, l had a great time! My guide, Tic Tak( yes, that is his name) was fabulous. He made the journey the 5 star rating. JEATH Museum and the River Kwai Bridge was poignant. I would recommend you pay attention to the weather when booking for the Erawan Falls. Unfortunately we were not able to swim, nor were the waterfalls emerald green. There were heavy rains the day before and the water was muddy from the heavy water flow. It would not have been safe for swimming. Also, wear appropriate shoe wear, as level 5 to 7 can be tricky if you experience the mud and water on the trail. The bonus was that l got to the top and the waterfall was the biggest flowing fall they had ever seen per the guide and ranger. Lastly, do not be late for this tour, it will only shorten your time at the Falls and there is a deadline to get to the top. If you truly want to reach # 7, it is best to go straight up and then make your way down for photos. Would do it again!

Amazing trip, highly recommend. The Railway and museum are very interesting. The highlight is the National Park - the waterfalls are beautiful. The tour was well organised. It is a long drive however very worth it. Good driving (never felt unsafe).

I enjoyed the combination of visiting Kanchanaburri (a historical and worthwhile place in Thailand) and going up the mountain at Erawan National Park. Kanchanaburri is also another must-see when visiting Thailand and it is doable from Bangkok.

The guide Mook wa really good, You have to go is a good experience

Amazing activities, and Golf is a highly knowledgable guide.
