You can walk across/on this bridge but be careful if you have children. It is very possible in places to fall into the river. We are not saying it’s not safe We’re just saying be aware to keep your eye on the little ones. With...More

Started off with a nice river trip, followed with a visit to the bridge, nice to see the actual bridge. Had a trip around the museum and a visit to the cemetery. The guide was exceptional throughout the trip. Money well spent.

Easy train ride thru the country, to the River Kwai. We walked across the bridge and felt sad for the Australian men forced to built the bridge. We had lunch on a pontoon restaurant, overlooking the Bridge.

The bridge itself isn't very special. But if you know the story of the pow behind it or will make more sense why this is a popular tourist spot.
