Excursion to the river Kwai

 

      The central point of this excursion is the bridge over the river Kwai, which witnessed the tragic events of the mid-20th century. This bridge, erected by the hands of hundreds of prisoners of war on the "railroad of death" in Burma, ironically turned after the war from the symbol of foreign occupation to one of the most popular Places for sightseeing in Thailand.

The bridge over the river Kwai is located 130 km west of Bangkok, near the city of Kanchanaburi. You can get to the place by air-conditioned bus from the Southern Bus Terminal  or by train. Trains leave early in the morning from the Hualampong station and Thonburistation. Taxi from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi will cost $ 96. The total duration of a one-day excursion from Bangkok is about 8 hours.

The construction of a strategic railroad from Thailand to Burma was paid for by the lives of about 100,000 prisoners of war (1 railway sleepers = 1 death), which the Japanese forced to work in unbearable, even by Asian standards conditions. Plunge into the atmosphere of those tragic events can be at the central point of the "road of death" - a bridge across the Kwai River, located at the confluence of the Kwai Noi and Kwai Yai Rivers. The railway route from Bangkok to the destination station in Kanchanaburi (River Kwai Bridge station) passes through the breathtaking Wamp Po Viagh  - a piece of canvas built right into the sheer cliff.

Today the bridge, like the whole railway, has become a memorial complex, next to which there are museums, a military cemetery, hotels and snack bars for tourists.

In addition to visiting the sites associated with the history of World War II, during the excursion to the River Kwai you will be offered an extensive program including rafting, a trip to the picturesque Helfair Pass and the Three Pagod Gorge, excursions to Wat Tamkaopun Cave Temple, the beautiful Erawan and Saiyok Waterfalls , On an elephant farm ($ 21-43), in a monkey school ($ 5) or in a tiger temple ($ 20).

 

An excursion to the Kwai River costs from 2,500 to 6,000 baht per person and can last from 1 to 3 days.
