    What to Expect
    Day 1 (L, D)

    6:00-6:30 a.m.: Pickup from major hotels in Bangkok downtown area.

    9 a.m.: Arrive Kanchanaburi province (about 80 miles/130km west of Bangkok). Visit theThailand–Burma Railway Center, an interactive museum, information, and research facility dedicated to presenting the history of the Thailand–Burma Railway. Visit the Allied War Cemetery, a memorial to some 6000 allied prisoners of war during WWII who perished along the railway line, later became known as 'The Death Railway', and were moved post-war to this eternal resting place. Visit the world famous Bridge over the River Kwai.

    Noon: Take a long–tailed boat on River Kwai to River Kwai Jungle Rafts.  Check–in and have lunch upon arrival.

    2 p.m.: A long tail boat and road trip will take to you Hellfire Pass, infamous due to the harsh conditions and heavy loss of life suffered by its laborers during construction. Then return to the rafts. (

    01 Jan-30 Jun 2018 Hellfire Pass Interpretative Centre (the museum) will be closed for renovations, however, visits will still go ahead to the actual location to see Hellfire Pass. Then a visit will be made to Sir Weary Dunlop’s Park at the nearby Home Phutoey River Kwai Resort. Due to its similar historical thread it is believed that this is a suitable alternative to the museum while it is closed.)
