Private Tour: Floating Markets and Bridge on River Kwai Day Trip from Bangkok

Your private Bangkok floating markets and bridge on River Kwai tour kicks off with a leisurely drive from the capital through salt fields, rice paddies and epic Thai countryside. You’ll cruise past rural landscapes on your way to a long tail speed-boat that will transport you on a thrilling journey through the famous floating markets. Experience shopping like a local as you navigate through a network of canals lined with traditional canoes topped with fruits, vegetables, sweets and meats. It’s possible to organize a ride on a local boat (at own expense) for a closer look.

After you’ve explored the unique markets—which remain one of the top attractions in this region—you’ll return to your air-conditioned coach and head towards Kanchanaburi, where the River Kwai is located. The river’s famous bridge was built in 1943 as part of a 
wartime project intended to connect Thai and Burmese railways lines to support Japanese occupation of Burma. More than 100,000 laborers and 12,000 prisoners of war died during the bridge’s construction.

Enjoy a local lunch at a popular restaurant before making your way to the bridge for a closer look. You’ll make a stop at the Thailand-Burma War Museum near the War Grave Cemetery. After touring the museum head back to your coach for the comfortable return 
trip to your Bangkok hotel.
