This is advertised as an up market tented village built on the site of an old POW camp. It is remote, has magnificent views of the river and a lot of character. The accommodation is ok but definitely basic with dodgy water and toilets. Dinner is a site affair with a decent enough barbecue. Breakfast is ok – I recommend...

Very close to Hellfire pass and Death Valley Railway we had a lovely three night stay at Hintok River Camp. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the units ideal for us with their canvass structure and outside facilities. The choice and quality of food was also very good and we particularly enjoyed the evening campfire barbeque. Built on an...

I loved this glamping experience next to the river Kwai with all its natural beauty. The local people are delightful, so friendly and helpful in every way. The main man, Lam, whose English is very good is an excellent guide and nothing was too much trouble. I happened to mention that I would like a pomilo as they were in...

A nice change and something a little different on our holiday in Thailand. The tents were clean and comfortable. The staff very helpful and welcoming. The bathing pool and sunbathing raft were a welcome place after a long day. We had used it as a base to visit hell fire pass which was a bit of a trek in the...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Had a fabulous time. Beautiful location. The food is amazing. Great tours and Lam our English speaking guide was the best. Lots of tours completed and worth every minute. Would highly recommend anyone looking for a piece of history in a tranquil location this is the place to come.

I will really recommend Hintok River Camp! We had a program for three days. It was well organized from the pick up to the drop off in Bangkok. Beautiful surroundings around the River Kwai, exciting to stay in a tent, interesting to learn about the history of the area, lovely guide who did everything to get a good experience for...

Fabulous location in the jungle in what once was a former POW site. Had two nights at the end of january and loved it. Not so much camping as glamping but still a long way removed from your hotel stay. Great views over the Kwai river, wonderful BBQ buffet dinners by firelight, superb trip by longboat to a floating village...

We stayed here at the end of January 2017 for 3 days.It's more glamping than camping and evening barbecues are excellent. The highlights of the trip were our visit to the Hellfire pass and museum, and the Mon village. Our guide Lam could not have been more helpful. His knowledge was excellent and his attention to our needs exceptional. He...

We loved this place and would highly recommend it. The location is fantastic and the campsite is lovely as were all the staff. The BBQ buffets were amazing and the rock pool is well worth a visit or 2. Make sure you take a bike and go for a cycle also - the locals are so friendly... and of course...

When you visit this former POW site it will open your eyes, you will see what our troops went through during their captivity. The camp is good, the food Okay with open air dining. All in all I really enjoyed my stay in a tent, it was so different from the usual hotel accommodation. The camp is located high above...
