Take a day trip to the scenic Mueang Kanchanaburi District, famous for its World War II history and natural beauty. Explore by road and river—visit the historic Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, unique JEATH War Museum, iconic River Kwai Bridge, and remarkable Tiger temple in this eventful full-day tour.
Start your day early with a hotel pickup and head towards the town of Kanchanaburi. Once you arrive, stop by the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery—a resting place for more than 6,000 prisoners of war who died during World War II.
Proceed to the JEATH War Museum, featuring mementos left behind by Japanese soldiers and prisoners from England, Australia, America, Thailand, and Holland. Learn about the infamous “Death Railway” and harsh realities of war.
Then, enjoy the rare opportunity to cruise up the Khwae Yai River in a long-tailed speedboat towards the River Kwai Bridge, namesake for the famous war movie inspired by its construction. Walk along the black-iron and concrete bridge, also constructed by prisoners of war, and check out the street markets before resting for a delicious Thai buffet lunch.
Continue through the rainforest to the unique Tiger Temple. Here, you can observe the monks in their caretaking routines, tending to the tigers and taking daily walks with these gentle beasts.
Take memorable pictures with the tigers and shop for mementos before taking your return transfer back to Bangkok.
