ITINERARY

River Kwai via Damnoen Saduak Floating Market - Full Day

Meals MEALS [ L ]

You will be picked up at 07:00. Depart for this full day Bangkok countryside tour. Travel south to Ratchaburi Province to visit Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Although one of the most touristy of Thailand’s floating markets, Damnoen Saduak offers great photo opportunities and a chance to experience this traditional style of marketplace. See boats laden with fresh fruit, traditional snacks and other items being sold on the canals. Imagine a time, not too long ago, when residents would paddle up to these floating stalls to buy their daily wares.

After exploring the market resume the drive to Kanchanaburi. Arrive in time for lunch at a local restaurant set along the banks of the River Kwai.

Learn about Thailand’s involvement in World War II, one of the country’s darkest eras. Visit the bridge spanning the River Kwai, built by Allied Prisoners of War, and the insightful Railway Museum. The Museum’s informative displays explain the tragic tale of the construction of the infamous ‘Death Railway’ and bridge. Read first-hand accounts of the prisoners who were forced to work under harsh conditions on these ambitious projects. Following this sombre visit continue to the war cemetery and pay respect to those who died during World War II.

If time allows, wrap up the full day Bangkok countryside tour with a short visit through Kanchanaburi’s charming town centre before commencing the journey back to Bangkok.  (L)
