Know More about this tour

Discover Bangkok's renowned floating markets before journeying onward to the infamous Bridge on the River Kwai.
Our first stop is Damnoen Saduak, where locals and travelers shop at the 3 official floating markets. We then visit the narrow canal flanked with food stalls and souvenir shops at Ton Kem, before venturing south to the more authentic markets of Her Kui and Khun Pitak.
After the markets, learn the history of Khwae Yai and its Bridge on the River Kwai, the bridge was built by World War II allied prisoners and forced laborers and known to be part of "Death Railway". The story is immortalized in Pierre Boulle's novel and David Lean's subsequent film adaptation.
Visit the well-kept Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, where an estimated 9,000 Allied soldiers who died constructing the Railway are buried. You will see touching pictures and artifacts from this harrowing event at the JEATH Museum, known in Thailand as the Wat Tai War Museum.
