Bangkok River Kwai Tour

Beyond Bangkok Tours

  • Kanchanaburi is a land forever cloaked in history. Renowned across the globe for its famous WWII landmarks – Bridge over the River Kwai (Kwae) and the Death Railway – this westernmost province was used by the Japanese army as a strategic supplies route into neighbouring Burma and beyond. Enclosed by verdant forests, then opening out onto a sheer cliff – just barely hanging on the edge – before crossing the Kwai Yai River at the Bridge over the River Kwai, the Death Railway is, today, one of the most scenic rail routes in the country.

    History, however, is only part of what Kanchanaburi has to offer as the province boasts a beautiful natural landscape of dense tropical jungles, crisscrossing rivers and streams, and spell-binding waterfalls with emerald-coloured pools. The idyllic Kwai Noi River cuts through lush valleys flanked by sheer cliffs on both sides, making for a great river journey by a bamboo raft or long-tail speedboat.
