Kanchanaburi And River Kwai One Day Tour From Bangkok. Get out of bustling Bangkok and visit the sleepy town. See the world-famous bridge on the River Kwai. Satisfy your curiosity with a dose of culture as you explore the historical landmark. On this full-day tour, witness the beat-up old streets symbolic of Kanchanaburi’s tragedies and triumphs during World War II under the imperial rule of the Japanese. Uncover the terrible history of the railway at the JEATH War Museum, which takes its name from the first letters of the words Japan, England, America/Australia, Thailand, and Holland. See the past recreated and relived with pictures and artifacts. Tour the well-kept Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, where the graves of an estimated 9,000 Allied soldiers are tended. They perished while constructing the notorious Burma Railway(Death Railway), which the Japanese had hoped would stretch all the way to the Burmese border. Travel by train to see the Death Railway. Ride through the rain forest and Tham Krasae Bridge, the historical wooden bridge along the mountain and the river, and enjoy the stunningly beautiful nature at Saiyok Noi waterfall.
Travel back in time to see the world-famous bridge on the River Kwai, built during World War II by prisoners of war, near the town of Kanchanaburi. Learn about the construction of the infamous Burma Railway(Death Railway) at the poignant JEATH War Museum. Kanchanaburi is a provincial town full of lots of painful history back in the time of World War II when Japanese forces torture Allied prisoners and laborers to build a railway to Myanmar. This nightmare was told in Pierre Boulle’s book and also was filmed in The Bridge Over the River Kwai and the 1957 movies.
Today, everything has changed, yet there are still memorials and museums in this town where we can see the old track of the event in the war, and many roads in the town center are named after many countries that were involved in the conflict. But, the town itself is crowded and alive surrounded by fields planted with tapioca, cane, corn, and sugar along Mae Klong River. Experience the wonderful sights of many attractions and you can feel joyful among local people living by Mae Nham Kwai (River Kwai). Make an unforgettable trip in Kanchanaburi, just 130 Km away from Bangkok. More Sightseeing Tour From Bangkok.
