Full description
History lovers visiting Thailand will value this opportunity to tour the region of Kanchanaburi in West Thailand. During this memorable day trip from Bangkok, you’ll visit the Death Railway which was put on the map by the 1957 movie, Bridge Over the River Kwai. You’ll begin the day by getting immersed in Thailand’s rich bounty at one of the country’s best-loved national parks, Erawan National Park. Walking trails, running water, and undisturbed wildlife characterize this peaceful area. Erawan Waterfall has seven tiers and a set of limestone caves at its base: you'll forget all about the busy streets of Bangkok. This natural paradise is the perfect place to breathe in the fresh country air. Continue to JEATH Museum, dedicated to the Allied Prisoners of War who died building the Burmese railway. This museum is a sad yet important reminder of Thailand’s history; it’s thought that over 100,000 lives were lost during this period. JEATH is an acronym for the main nationalities involved in the building of the railway: Japanese, English, Australian, American, Thai and Dutch. Finally, you’ll visit the historic Bridge over the River Kwai. You’ll get the chance to walk over the bridge, soak up the impressive scenery, and take a moment to remember the past, before returning to your accommodations/meeting point at approximately 8:00 PM.

The waterfalls were absolutely beautiful - that alone is worth the trip. The museum and the train tracks were also interesting, but we chose not to spend too much time there. Luckily, our tour ended up being just the two of us, so we could really curate the schedule to our needs. Our tour guide, Nuch, made the whole trip excellent! She always made sure to give us free time at every location while also providing plenty of info about the sites. She made sure we had plenty of bathroom, water, and food breaks which I really appreciated. The drive back to Bangkok can be a little long, but the van is very comfortable so it's easy to nod off. The driver was also extremely nice and made us feel very safe in the car.

Our guide Nancy was friendly and considerate. She gave us plenty time at the Falls when we said we wanted to swim. She knew where the clean restrooms are and planned the breaks before it’s too late, e.g. just before we enter Bangkok because you never know the traffic situation. The driver was steady and gave us a smooth ride.

Very kind and helpful tour guide, went out of his way to help with everything. Great driver and was on time. They were both very kind despite the fact that I misunderstood my pickup time. The trip was great, the waterfall is extremely beautiful (level 3), definitely do not miss out on taking a bathing suit. The history of the Death bridge was quite interesting to learn about as well.
