3 Days Hin Tok River Camp & River Kwai Jungle Rafts
Kanchanburi province is Thailand ‘s third largest. Largely undeveloped, it features a difficult and sometimes harsh mountain range along its border with Myanmar.
This trip will reveal not only the local life, but also some of its history.
Visit the interesting War Museum (Thailand-Burma Railway Centre) as well as the War Cemetery with over 6000 graves of allied prisoners. Cross over the famous River Kwai Bridge (pronounced and written Khwae, like the word square), a wooden and steel slatted viaduct. The centre of the bridge
was destroyed by Allied bombs in 1945 so today only the outer curved spans are original.
Learn about the prisoners' hardship at the Hell Fire Pass Memorial. Enjoy the colorful Mon dance presentation, and take a boat trip to a local Mon Tribal Village where you can hike through the jungle.Show More
