Dive into the harrowing history of World War II and its impact on Thailand on this surreal private tour of Kanchanaburi that also includes a delightful dose of Mama Nature at the beautiful Erawan Falls.
An incredible town of contrasts, Kanchanaburi presents a spectacular picture of exquisite natural beauty hiding an indelible dark history. The day begins with us heading towards this alluring province as your guide gets you acquainted with incredible details of how WWII impacted the country as well as some heartbreaking tales of the POW (Prisoners of War) camps that dotted the region. Our first stop is the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery where close to 7000 war prisoners and martyrs have been interred, a chance to learn more about these POWs as well as pay our respects. Continuing our journey reliving those harrowing times, we will visit the JEATH War Museum next where you can dig deeper into the harsh realities of war and observe mementos that were left behind, besides also learning about the lives of Japanese soldiers and prisoners from England, Australia, America, and Holland.
Next up is the infamous Bridge 277 over Khwae Yai River, immortalised by the epic 1957 British/American war movie The Bridge on the River Kwai. We will take a walk along the bridge whose original wooden version was bombed in 1945. It’s a goosebump-inducing experience, to say the least, considering it has seen its fair share of conflict and bloodshed. The notorious Thai-Burma Railway or as it is commonly known - Death Railway, awaits us next. Embark on a train to ride through a particularly dangerous area, crossing steep cliff edges and deep forested areas, as we recount the stories of all the forced labour that the Allied prisoners were subjected to, building and maintaining the railway line. Post this electrifying activity, we will get off at the Tham Krasae station, presenting a stunning cave right next to the railway line, before making our way to a lovely restaurant for lunch with a beautiful view of the River Kwai.
Our final haunt for the day is the breathtaking Erawan Waterfall, one of the prettiest in Thailand, spread over seven separate tiers. Gor for a refreshing swim or explore the numerous nature trails or even just relax by the water - it’s the perfect spot to conclude an emotional day of touring!
