Immerse yourself in Thailand's unique culture and discover its wartime history with this one day tour from Bangkok. Enjoy convenient hotel pick ups in the following areas in the city: Silom, Sathorn, Sukhumvit, Chinatown, and Khaosan Road, then make your way to the Mueang Region by car. Along the way, you'll visit a nearby cemetery where 6,000 war prisoners were buried, as well as the JEATH Museum, filled with remnants of history about the lives of people from Japan, England, Australia, America, Thailand, and Holland during World War 2. You'll also get to listen to interesting stories about this period in Thailand's history from your English-speaking guide. Hop on a long-tailed speedboat, which takes you upstream along the Mae Klong River as you travel to the Bridge on the River Kwai, which inspired the popular movie from 1957. Walk along the bridge and check out the stunning sight of the blue river, surrounded by the lush green forests, then visit local street markets and buy some souvenirs. Climb aboard a train that travels the Burma Railway, also known as the Death Railway due to the path it takes, built along edges of steep cliffs and thick forests. After the train ride, go on a short hike to visit a restaurant in the area, where you'll get to recharge your energy with a delicious buffet-style lunch that features a selection of Thai specialties (vegetarian option available.) Once the meal is over, take some more time to unwind, before you head back to Bangkok by car and get dropped off at your hotel.
