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.

  • First, the pros about of the tour. The tour guide was on time. The car was clean. Since we were the only two people in the tour, it really became a private tour. That seemed like quite the plus at the time but a negative as the tour dragged on. The tour guide was professional and courteous but he did not appear that engaging when we first met him. Again, pleasant at all times but I got the impression that he would not have said a word had we not asked him any questions and attempted to make small talk which became a bit exhausting. I have never been around a non-engaging tour guide. The ride back was supposed to be about three hours but it turned into a four hour ride because of the traffic with the tour guide and the driver basically talking to each other the entire ride back in Thai. As a result, it felt a lot longer. The entire tour seemed like just two guys driving us around to the stops on the tour. Overall, we enjoyed the stops on the tour but I could have probably hired transportation without a guide and had the same experience. The tour guide really added very little value to the entire experience.
