  • Overview & Itinerary


    Central Thailand contains some of the country’s most impressive Buddhist and Hindu ruins. Ayuthaya and Kanchanburi were important trade centres from the 14th to the 18th centuries. The ruins of Ayuthaya are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The region has some dramatic modern history attached to it including the infamous Death Railway of World War II.

    This part of the country is full of history and also has some of Thailand’s most impressive natural scenery and attractions. There are picture perfect waterfalls and lush green forests. For whatever reason you come to Thailand a trip to this area is not to be missed.

    Continue to Kanchanaburi Province to visit the Allied War Cemetery and JEATH War Museum which is a replication of a prisoner of War Camp containing photographic memorabilia. Board a train to take a ride on the Death Railway along the original wooden viaducts. After lunch at a local restaurant, down to an elephant camp for a ride on the elephants (2 pax per elephant on a saddle), followed by a gentle sail over the Kwai Noi River on a bamboo raft. Proceed to the hotel at Home Phutoey River Kwai Resort.

    • Great mix of temples and other historical sites!

      You will not be taken to any traditional tourist traps such as a 'jewelry factory.' I was very happy with the mix of historical sites. Watch 'The Bridge on the River Kwai'...
