The floating market is a must see for anyone visiting Bangkok. The River Kwai was also very interesting but was about 3 hours outside of the city, so it involved a long drive. We were dropped off at the Kwai Museum and then at the bridge, then the cemetary, each time being told where to meet the guide. She did not escort us and give much information. All in all though, I wouldn't have wanted to drive this distance so it was still worthwhile. We had a lot of fun at the floating market.

Peter was our guide and Mr Pom Pom our driver., only 4 of us on the tour. Peter was very good at his job and well spoken. The floating market was interesting and the War Memorial was beautiful, would have liked more time at the memorial however. As for the bridge however NOT worth it, there is nothing to show you what it is it's simply a bridge with some horrible tacky train going over it. The rest of the area is a tourist trap / market,. In a word TACKY. No respect what so ever to the lives lost you could have simply been anywhere in Thailand with a black bridge over a river. The trip also seemed to be more about the "side trips" we called Peter the walking ATM as he just kept getting money. We refused a couple of side trips in the end. A long journey to be very disappointed unfortunately.
