The junk around the bridge is a real disappointment
Mar 2020
I have seen some crappy sites in my days travelling the world. The area around the Bridge on the River Kwai is a disgrace. So much junk and garbage littered about. Nobody seems to care how bad it looks. I was such a disappointment. I would not dare eat anything in the area. They really need to clean it up and fix all of the broken footpaths, walls and general appearance.

Had a lovely boat ride along the rive, however although the bridge was interesting it was also a sobering experience. A must do on your trip.

Longboat Trip along the Kwai to Kanchanaburi
Feb 2020
What a fantastic way to travel...a longboat trip along the river gave a great view of the bridge from the water. It was also cool and refreshing compared to travel in a Tuktuk or car. It was interesting to see normal daily life along the banks and also see big tourist resorts in comparison to small dwellings of the locals. Children were being bathed in tubs filled with river water next door to resorts with huge swimming pools - a massive contrast.

Kantenburi River Kwai Erewan water falls.
Feb 2020 • Friends
Kantenburi north of Bangkok. Great place to see the famous bridge over the Kwai and museums. The town is Small but the main street has good restaurants low cost and some friendly bars to visit in the evening.
You can take the train ride but watch the times they can change and you need one train out and one back not many in a day. We hired a car and went to death pass.
We Stayed in the bridge residency hotel very nice probably the best in the street and a stroll to the area of food and bars.
A 40min drive to Erewan falls, other transport available. It’s a couple of km up hill hike to the top falls as there are seven levels worth doing. Water is cold and refreshing for dip so take your swimwear.
Eating places and small shops at the car park so if you forget the swimwear you can get some or dry clothes.

Picked up from Bangkok - 3 hr air conditioned car transport to Kanchanaburi. Stopped at the War Memorial, visited the cemetary and found family gravestone who sadly lost their life whilst building the Death Railway. Walked the Bridge over the river Kwai then Caught the train to Wang Pho station - finished with lunch at Praweenut Restuarant and then air conditioned trip home. Highly Recommend.

The famous bridge
Feb 2020
Not to be missed. We were fortunate to be walking across the legendary bridge when a train came over, very slowly. Iconic landmark and should be visited along with the ward museum

Historical must see
Feb 2020 • Friends
After watching film and reading books about the Bridge of the River Kwai during World War II it was an amazing piece of historical engineering to see. There is only one train that passes through each day so it’s possible to walk along the tracks both sides to take photo’s. It can be busy. There are plenty of places to eat and drink. If you are there around midday you will see the train arrive. We purchased a ticket to ride the train for an hour up the railway track which was very interesting viewing the countryside.
