After hotel pickup in central Bangkok, travel by a private air-conditioned vehicle to Kanchanaburi—a distance of about 80 miles (130 kilometers).
Upon arrival, take in several important sites in the region. Visit the Death Railway and the Bridge Over the River Kwai, memorials to the thousands of prisoners of war who were forced and died to build the railway through the dense jungle during WWII.
You’ll also visit the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery and JEATH War Museum, a small open-air museum with photos, paintings, and artifacts from WWII prisoners.
Have lunch and take a longtail speedboat ride on the River Kwai, before taking a ride on the local train in a return trip to Bangkok at the end of the day.
