130 kilometres west of Bangkok, not far from the Burmese (Myanmar) border, you will find the bridge over the River Kwai, made (in)famous by the 1957 Academy Award-winning film of the same name. Grim history aside, this area of Thailand is rich in culture and natural beauty. The border area with Burma/Myanmar is known for its mountainous charm and is unmatched elsewhere in the country.

We collect you by bus at Hotel Narai or New Road Guest House in Bangkok at approximately 08:45 and then drive to Kanchanaburi (three to four hours). Upon arrival we check in at a local guest house and have lunch. At about 14:00 we board a boat and visit Khao Poon Cave. This excursion includes the war museum, war cemetery and the infamous bridge over River Kwai. Dinner is served at the resort and we get a half hour foot massage. The rest of the evening is set aside for free time. You may want to take a swim or sign up for some optional tours or enjoy different types of massage. (Additional tours/activities are not included in the package price.) (L, D)
Day 2: Erawan National Park:
After breakfast we continue to Erawan National Park, where we soak in the beautiful seven-level waterfall with small lakes on either side. Remember to bring your swimsuit! After lunch in a local shop we'll visit the Hellfire pass, followed by Kra-Sae cave train station, where we board the Death Railway for a 30-minute ride that will take us to the World War II-era bridge. We return to Bangkok at the end of the day; expected arrival time between 19:00 and 20:00. (B, L)

*Go Beyond Asia does not offer tours with elephant riding. In Kanchanaburi and outskirts, you may pass elephant camps and/or be offered elephant riding. This we cannot prevent, but we can (and do) make a conscious choice by avoid sending our travellers on elephant rides. We encourage travellers to make their own conscious choice, while on the go.
