River Kwai Day Tour (Kanchanaburi)

Take a memorable ride on the Thailand–Burma Railway, also known as the Death Railway for the thousands of POWs and forced laborers who lost their lives building it during World War II. On this day trip from Bangkok, you’ll visit the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery and the Jeath War Museum, and hear moving war stories from your guide. Then ride a long-tailed speedboat down the River Kwai where you’ll have a view of the famous bridge. Lunch and hotel transport by coach are included.

Despite some snarky reviews we found this cemetery very moving especially after just going through the nearby museum detailing the depravities inflicted on the POWs and non-combatants in building the nearby bridge and railroad in WW2. Reading the inscriptions on the tombstones made the realities of this period very real. The cemetery is very well maintained and a tribute to these poor unfortunates who died here.

We took a trip to Asia and the graves of the fallen were included. I am pleased to say that the cemetery us kept in an immaculate condition - a fitting tribute. Alongside, on the next road, is a visitor centre with many displays of photographs, well worth seeing.

Having seen the war cemeteries in Northern Europe I wasn't sure what to expect in Thailand. This cemetery is every bit as moving as those I have seen in Flanders and Normandy and illustrate the futility of war perfectly while honouring those who gave their lives

Not really of interest. Everything is falling apart in here. Filled with dust and everything is placed at random. No explanation. You want to give away 50b away too support who knows who. Go for it.

Beautifully kept cemetery to remember those who lost their lives. We rode bikes here from our hotel through the town to the memorial. We walked through the paths of the cemetery to pay our respects. Very sad and moving.
