What To Expect

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.

    Since me and my friend aren't staying at major hotels and need to meet up at the pick-up hotel. Therefore we arrived at the pick up hotels at around 6:20am. During the waiting time, me and my friends try to call the phone number which show at the email to see how much longer the driver will need before arrived so we can go to restroom but no one answer the phone. After a long wait we find klook online customer service for help, which in result that the driver claim that he or she cannot find us and already leave the pick up hotels. Moreover, they claim it was our fault that the driver could not find us. To be honestly, if you need proof, I don't mind asking my hotel and the pick-up hotel for CCTV to show you what time we leave our hotel and what time we arrived at the pick-up hotel. Yes we were being "SO DAMN patient for in cases of unforeseen delays along the pick up route." Thank you so much Tour East (T.E.T.) Ltd for ruined our day. What a ridiculous company.

    Historical tour that reminds us of the cruelty of war. Guided by skilled and friendly tour leaders. Lunch at a delicious local restaurant.

    If you do not mind the Long drive up then this tour is a must. The obvious highlight are the long tail speedboat ride which is simply exhilarating. The other highlight is the visit to the bridge over river Kwai and the amazing train ride to Wang Po. It offers so much to see if terms of history and scenery. I must add the train ride is one and a half hours with loads to see. You will not regret going on this trip.

    Pick-up on time. Lunch does not have a wide variety but buffet style. Guide is informative. Destination is too far. Majority of the time spent on travelling. One of the participant of the tour was left behind because the train arrived early. Better if the travel agency have all the contact numbers of the participants.
  • MIN FOO 16 Dec 2018
    GREAT TOUR GUIDE WITH DETAIL INFO OF PLACE VISITED. COMMUNICATION WAS GREAT. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TRIP.
  • Melanie 5 Dec 2018
    Excellent guide with good amount of information. Well worth the train seat upgrade. Be aware that this a long day with a lot of travelling - however there are plenty of stops to break it up
  • Wai Pui 30 Oct 2018
    Very early pick up from hotel, as this is a quite long distance journey, very good arrangement! However the train upgrade is worth if the visiting day was peak
  • Lay Li 26 Jun 2018
    the trip was wonderful. the only bad experience was the morning pick up driver from our hotel. so rude and greedy. we left an branded cap in his van and 100% sure was on the seat. our tour guide called him, he said never seen it. very disappointed with his attitude. the trip was wonderful, train wasnt crowded. no need upgrade if its weekday, could save thb200/pax. the lunch at wangpho was delicious!
  • Joel 22 Jun 2018
    Good trip overall. Well worth seeing. Lunch was very average. it is just a thai buffet with flavour and spices toned down to accommodate western tastes.
