Apart from the historic part it really is just a bridge. You can walk across and the train will go very slowly over so no worries

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

You could still feel the painful energy from the thousands who lost their lives building the Japanese railway. Standing on the bridge and looking down at the water was peaceful and a way to honor those who gave their lives. Many touristy stalls nearby where...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.

You shouldn't have any problem. If we made it without any problems I'm sure you will be able. No need to walk all the way over the bridge. Hope you appreciate it as much as these two grey surfers.

Hi Esther I can’t help I’m afraid as I took a small tour. It was fantastic though as it included the Jeath War Museum, a train ride and a boat trip on the Mekong. You see a lot of the country this way. I’m sure you could... More
