Bridge on the River Kwai and Thailand-Burma Railway Tour
Quite a memorable visit.
, Feb 2020
Despite the long journey from Bangkok (and back) the experience of being at the bridge over the river Kwai was quite emotional. The train ride and visiting the Commonwealth War Cemetery gave an added sense of occasion.
Would have like to have lingered a little longer to remember those FEPOWs whose lives were cut short on the death railway. Quite memorable!
This was an excellent tour. It was a long time in mini bus being transported, but it is a long drive from Bangkok (2-3 Hours), and that can't be helped. That is where it is, and it was well worth the journey, and really lovely lunch! Guide was excellent with information etc. I wish we'd have had a bit more time at each place, but because of distance from Bangkok, time was important, to fit a tour like this in, in one day. Well worth it and very pleased I went. Also was great to meet other Brits who were on the tour. And felt like I owed the many soldiers who suffered so much and died there, a visit, despite heat and no sleep/jet lag. They will have suffered so much more!
Train ride was just how you imagine and the boat ride was great also. Great experience, a real shame though you don’t get to travel back on train & boat that would make it even better. The drive is very long on return my only criticism.
Take a memorable ride on the Thailand-Burma Railway, also known as the Death Railway for the thousands of POWs and forced laborers who lost their lives building it during World War II. On this day trip from Bangkok, visit the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery and the JEATH War Museum, and hear moving war stories from your guide. Then ride a long-tailed speedboat down the Kwai River where you have a view of the famous bridge.
Bangkok traffic is so horrific that you see approximately four hours worth of "stuff" and six hours worth of driving.
The museum and train ride are very interesting. Our tour guide's command of English was not great, so he was not all that helpful in explaining things or offering history (fortunately we knew the history), but it was nice to have someone lead the way for us. He was kind enough to make sure my lunch was gluten-free, as requested. So, yes, worth doing, but be prepared and bring a book to read during the traffic jams.

Pay a visit to the nation’s most famous bridge that spans the River Kwai and listen to stories about the notorious history of this Thai landmark. Lunch is included on this memorable tour.
Our guide was pretty quiet on the long ride to the floating markets. I like when guides share the country history and information about where we are driving as we go. Also the floating market was a lot more touristy than I expected. My advice would be to skip the boat ride (they literally take you only thru the souvenir area and go so slow that 2 turns takes the whole 30 minutes). Instead walk to the left, toward the start of the floating market and experience more of the market aspect rather than the tourism one.
Go beyond Bangkok city limits and gain a deeper understanding of life beyond the capital as you explore the floating markets of Damnoen Saduak.
