Bridge on the River Kwai and Thailand-Burma Railway Tour

36 reviews
Immerse yourself in the history of World War II during this tour to the Bridge on the River Kwai from Bangkok. Listen to in-depth guided commentary that tells the history of the bridge itself, and learn more about the events surrounding the POWs by visiting a war museum and a POW cemetery. Additionally, you’ll ride along the tracks of the Death Railway, walk across the bridge itself, and take a long-tailed speedboat ride on the river.

Organized and informative. Well worth the admission charge to spend an hour or two amongst the artifacts. Nice video presentation as well.

Well worth a look here. So much information about the Death Railway, lots of original photos and artifacts collected from the POW's. Lots of merchandise and books for sale.

This museum is directly across from the cemetery where many of those who died building the railway are buried. The museum is very professional and gives a very wide yet detailed presentation of the war in Asia and this area in particular. There are ample photos and other memorabilia that will give a very clear presentation of the depredations inflicted by the Japanese military in building the nearby bridge and railway stretching from Thailand through Burma. Put this on the top of your list.

A reminder of history was really all that could be appreciated by the visit. This, however, helped to explain the past to my young daughter.

Such a terrible part of our history, the way the Japanese treated their prisoners, including hundreds of Australians. Very somber Place.
