Erawan Waterfalls-Death Railway & River Kwai Tour

28 reviews
Take a break from Bangkok’s hustle on this small-group door-to-door adventure, which simply can’t be done in a day on public transport. Spend the morning swimming and taking pictures at the 7-tiered Erawan Waterfall, then enjoy a picnic in the national park. Finish with a ride on the Burma Railway (Death Railway), built by Allied prisoners during World War II, and a look at the Bridge on the River Kwai.

Plenty of shops and restaurants and beautiful views of the Kwai river. This is a must see when in Kanchanaburi and a great place to spend an hour or two.

We visited Thailand and this was part of the package. The train itself was comfortable, all had tickets & refreshments were included. We passed some quaint ‘stations’ and the scenery was beautiful. We stopped at the bridge, our guide gave us its’ history and we walked down the track. We went into a large cave containing a huge Buddha and we’re told that workers on the line slept in there. No comfort at all after backbreaking work! Well worth a look if you’re in the area.

Had an amazing day visiting River Kwai it was really quiet and your surrounded by nature. While visiting the area we taken the jungle rafts which were a fantastic way to travel down the River Kwai our driver stoped at significant spots & let us off to go explore while he waited for us to return back to move on to the next location, this is the perfect place to disconnect from the rest of the world and just explore nature’s beauty.

I wonder how many of the visitors that pose for photos really understand the sacrifice of so many lives to build this structure? It seems a little disrespectful but there is no denying its place in history. Seeing the trains passing over puts it all in perspective
