After a welcome and pick-up from your hotel by our local English-speaking tour guide and another private driver, head to Kanchanaburi province.

It takes about 2.30 hours to reach there, and a short stop for unavoidable matters or a coffee break on the way is possible.

Kanchanaburi is in the north-west of Bangkok and is a mountainous, rainforest, and riverine province. Part of it shares a border with Myanma (formrly Burma), especially the well-known border pass “Dan Chedi Sam Ong” which means Three pagoda borders pass.

Not only has the province been well-known for its natural beauty, World War II Memorial Sites, the former ancient Khmer Kingdom-occupied city, and the discovery of pre-history human settlements, but there is also one of the best elephant sanctuaries located here.

The first stop is at the War Cemetery, the biggest one, which contains approximately 9,000 remains of prisoners of war who died of decease or were tortured during the construction of the “Death Railway.”

which inside shows superb displays of the events that happened during the construction of the River Kwai Bridge and exhibits collections of photographs, pictures, articles, pistols, knives, other related items, and movies.

Next, a 10-minute drive to visit the River Kwai Bridge, which served as the inspiration for the film “The Bridge Over the River Kwai.” During World War II, 1942–1945, POWs built this structure.

Before we get off, you will be excited and hold your breath when the train gradually glides through the rails. The part where it appears the rail is clinging to a deadly steep cliff over the River Kwai.
