What To Expect

Drive out to Kanchanaburi, Thailand's third largest province, located west of Bangkok, and spend a day taking in the turbulent history of the area. You'll first visit the bridge over the River Kwai, a historical landmark that is part of the Death Railway built by Allied prisoners of war, under control of the Japanese in 1942. You'll also visit the Jeath War Museum to enhance your knowledge and the War Cemetery where thousands of POWs were laid to rest. After a local lunch you'll end the day with a bamboo rafting ride, an elephant trek and time to soak up the beauty of Kanchanburi at the cascading Saiyoknoi Waterfall.

    1) timing given to me for move out is 630am. But the guide say the booking is done at 6am. 2) alot of extra cost needed to be paid on the way. Was not informed before hand. 3) program not same as given on the website. No water fall. 4) tour guide is kind and friendly.

    A nice side trip from Bangkok. Everything was great but it would've been better if the local tour operator handled problems very well. The train was packed that we needed to ride another one in the afternoon. The lunch which was included on the package didn't come with drinks, they should've told that earlier.

    The guide was friendly and the trip was pleasant. I see in the highlights that the trip included train ride but apparently it was not included in our trip. We actually completed the tour including lunch around 1plus and was back to Bangkok by 4pm. Felt a bit disappointed since we expected to see more. Having said that, it was a pleasant outing out of Bangkok.

    its good. love the place.. historical magical.. preserving like this to know the historical events happens
  • Marc*** 17 Jan 2017
    It was a nice trip to hear about the history of the River Kwai and terrific to see the countryside. However, the tour was not as described. We did the join-in tour and did not even get to ride on the train nor go to the waterfall. We were told that we either had a choice to go for the rafting/elephant ride or the train. Unlike others, we also felt rushed just to get back to Bangkok before rush hour. Would def not recommend.

    Amazing one day trip. The tour gave us enough time to walk around and explore at our own pace. Taking the train was a good way to see different areas of Thailand. Food was good and staff was friendly.
  • JING*** 18 Dec 2016
    Local tour guide cut short the itinerary. Food was good. But he also tricked us into tourist spots to just spend money. Such as toilet and stuff. Hurried and looked lazy: always on the phone + not there when we need to take pictures, explanations and etc. More focus on other big group: i wasnt able to finish my food and he lead the bug group on van. Even the restaurant owner was baffled by this scene. Very poor "guiding" and i advice other lone travellers to not join the groups because you will be neglected and money not worth spent (even though you paid more). Thank you (but operator at hong kong was very polite)

    I did not imagine the view at Erawan Falls to be so breathtaking. There are 7 levels to the falls and it takes athleticism to finish them all. We only made it to Level 5 because we underestimated the physical endurance and water needed for the trek. However, you do not need to go all the way to the top as there is a lot of space to swim and play at every level.
