What to expect

Add some history and culture to your Thailand trip with a visit to the old town of Kanchanaburi. During WWII, Kanchanaburi was under the control of the Japanese, resulting to a few infamous establishments such as the Bridge on the River Kwai and the Death Railway, that were both immortalized in the Academy Award winning epic war film of the same name in 1957. The tour begins early with a pick up at your hotel and immediately move onto Kanchanaburi's War Cemetery and JEATH War Museum. You will hear the turn of events and pay respects to the 6,000 brave Allies from Australia, England, and the Netherlands, considered to be the largest of the 2 war burials in town. See the historic landmarks along with the full story as you recapture the tragedy along the River Kwai bridge and Death Railway. Enjoy a scrumptious traditional Thai lunch while you interact with some of the town locals before you leave the vicinity. Complete with an English speaking guide and round trip transfer service to your hotel, Kanchanaburi's unique story is worth telling and visiting for those who are more interested in Thailand's historical significance.
