Staying at Natee Hotel in Kanchanaburi it was our first stop visiting the sights. An easy 5-7 min. drive down the road from the hotel. Exiting to see and thoughts go back to WW2

This is not the actual bridge built during the Second World War by prisoners of war. Nor is it the bridge built for the movie. It's just a bridge over the river Kwai. However, due to the location and the reverence and remembrance shown by...More

You can get photo shots at the bridge but try to get there when the temperature is decreased to avoid the sun-light hotter than hall. Bridge-Location is just normal. But, fully recommended to have a lunch and keep calm at the restaurant near that bridge....More

lots of tourists on the bridge with very little room to move. Kind of hazardous; although the history is interesting

This is not the original bridge built by POWs but still has a sense of history about it. Worth the visit and walk over, great views, and lots to do in vicinity.

Honest to god, saw a Japanese family doing a funny face selfie. Glad these monuments to war atrocities are kept in existence (due to tourism) but respect should be encouraged. You will pay for everything here. Toilets included

This was really good to see for me it is quite far from Bangkok but worth it. Lots of food stalls near the bridge and restaurants. There was lots of shops around there to. Worth a day trip to the bridge.

The bridge on the river kwai has been restored and is well maintained. It is functional and a meter gauge track runs on the bridge. There are portions on the bridge to click photographs of the surroundings. The railway station is small and well kept.

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.
