What You Can Expect
The famous bridge, which marks what is known as the Death Railway, was built in 1943 to connect Thai and Burmese railways and support the Japanese occupation of Burma in World War II. Today, the impressive structure serves as a memorial and reminder of the thousands of POWs and laborers who died during its construction.
Your private guide will share stories and insight as you visit this historically significant destination before taking you on a tour of the Allied War Grave cemeteries and the JEATH War Museum. You’ll find paintings and pictures lining the walls of this small but informative stop, before hopping aboard a long-tailed speedboat for a thrilling ride on the River Kwai. You’ll have time to ride on the local train here before returning to Bangkok after a truly memorable day.
We really enjoyed our tour of the River Kwai. It's worth the extra money to get the private tour.
One of the best tours done from Bangkok
Thoroughly recommend the private tour
No lining up,everything done for us
All tours will now be a private tour
This was an extremely moving experience. Having not studied the 20th Century history at school I found this tour very informative. It was a tour packed with information and great experiences that were complimented by an outstanding guide. A trip not to be missed and one that reminds us of the inhumanity of man towards others some times.
Picked up on time. Interesting stop at the war cemetery which is immaculately looked after - very sobering. Went on to the small museum which is a mock up of the POW camp filled with drawings from the inmates - again very sobering and very moving. The boat trip up to the bridge is fun and doesn't last too long. Time to walk along the bridge, quick bit of shopping then onto the train. Little snack provided, great scenery and a view of the incredible work done by the Allied prisoners to make the railway under horrendous conditions. Lovely lunch stop then a very long 3hr journey back to Bangkok.
Great trip, great guide, would recommend it.
