River Kwai Packages
An excursion to Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai is a great way to experience the natural environment and culture of Thailand, and to discover the region’s beautiful yet bloody history.
Kanchanaburi, located 180 kilometres to the west of Bangkok, is the gateway to the province it shares its name with. A naturally rich place, you can revel in the beautiful waterfalls, collect stunning wild orchids, explore the jungle and caves, and visit truly authentic native Mon villages. It is a perfect location for the adventurous and curious alike.
Any tour you take of Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai will not be complete, however, without encountering the darker part of its past. The infamous Bridge over the River Kwai was built by Allied prisoners of war during World War II. Built as part of the railway to connect Thailand and Myanmar, it earned the bloody nickname of the Railway of Death, due to the countless lives lost in the building. Still in use to this day, your tour will take you over the bridge and through the equally infamous Hellfire Pass.
Kanchanaburi is also home to Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, the Thailand-Burma Railway Museum, and the DEATH War Museum, all must-sees.
