The area around the River Kwai Bridge in but one of the main attractions, with it's river views, souvenir shops and restaurants. We had a "River Pontoon Cruise" with food, drink and karaoke, wonderful! Just great!

Nice to take pictures of this river from the edge. There's also some rowing and other water spots you can do down here. Worth visiting.
