History-buff, engineering nerd or nature lover? If you think you fit the bill for one or all, jump on this road trip to the Thai province of Kanchanaburi, home to the famous “Bridge on the River Kwai.” On this tour, you’ll be taking a train along the “Death Railway” to Burma, mandated by the Japanese in 1943 to support its campaign west to Rangoon. Several World War II sites lie in this direction, such as the Don Rak War Cemetery and the JEATH War Museum, full of pictorial and physical memorabilia from WWII’s South-East Asian theatre.

At Don Rak War Cemetery 6,982 of the Allied POWs who perished during the building of the Death Railway are laid to rest. Afterwards, you'll visit the JEATH War Museum, in order to find out how Allied POWs lived during the railway's construction. Next stop will be the Bridge over the River Kwai, part of that very same Death Railway, constructed by Allied prisoners of war along with forced labourers from many nations and backgrounds.

By 11:45 am, you'll get onboard a train that runs along the Death Railway. An exciting stop will be the danger-filled curving bridge, constructed of wooden logs along the mountainside. You'll have a chance for a photo opportunity here as well as at the nearby Kra-sae cave, a popular place to walk around to absorb the ambience of the area.. Afterwards, there will be time for a buffet lunch before you get on your way to Sai Yok Noi Waterfall, where you'll have some free time to relax until the journey back to Bangkok. You'll take off for Bangkok at about 4pm and end your day safe and sound at your hotel at around 6pm.

    I always like to know more about a a place in a historic side. This tour gave me an understanding of what happened here in the past in WWII, you can always 'feel' more when you're on-site by understanding the stories behind.

    Was an okay experience and fair value for the cost. Not much interaction with the guides so you are pretty much on your own to sight see.
