The train journey can start anywhere along the line. I took the train from Thonburi station in Bkk. Don’t leave getting to this station to the last minute as traffic in that area is hell even on a good day. I took the train to kanchanaburi about 2.5 hours and lots of countryside to
watch, rice fields, fruit and lots of cheap snacks on board. You can walk to most hotels from the centrally located station in Kanchanaburi. I took the train to the River Kwai bridge, the next station and then walked to my hotel from there as it was closer than from the main station. The next day I took the train to the end of the line at Nam Tok. Amazing scenery, wooden trestles, panoramic views of the river Kwai and a history lesson about how the railway was built. All this for $100 baht each way. Lots of places to visit nearby Namtok too but don’t miss the last train back.

I have been to Kanchanburi many time however this was the 1st with my family , 7 people in total . We book the full day : Cemtey , Jeath Museum , Bridge , Train , Lunch, Elephant camp , rafting , and finally Sai Yok waterfall .
Tour was booked through Click2go Thailand , about 1000b each ...but well worth it .
Minivan was on time , clean and with a safe driver .
We had varous guides through the day and the tour was mix and match ....but all knowledgable and effiencient ....

it was a public holiday in Thailand on the day we went so a little busy , especially on the train ........we paid a little extra for guaunteed seats, water and wet towel ...100b each .

No real issues all day ......on time , plenty of time in each spot to do what we wanted .
The family really enjoyed .

the only issues was the waterfall .....Hot season and no water , no water , no waterfALL....more of a trickle .....

Very busy with Thai families enjoying the cool shade under the trees , so a good place to people watch .

It was included in our tour. A great experience and lasted about an hour. It travels along part of the original line built by POW's and has some great views along the way. The guide offered everyone an upgrade to a better carriage so that we could sit at either side of the carriage when ever we wanted to. A few of us declined and we could do this anyway in the carriage we had.

Excellent journey up the valley to hellfire pass - full of emotion and sentiment having first visited the allied cemetery and museums.

This is a must if you visit Kanchanaburi remember to sit on the right hand side of the train facing the front and DO NOT just put your head out the window have a little look first especially if it has been raining the train passes within millimetres of trees
