Description

The Bridge on the River Kwai shot to fame all over the world when it was featured in the award-winning 1957 movie. Cross it yourself on foot on a Full Day Guided Tour from Bangkok. You'll learn about its tragic history and unwind over lunch in a local restaurant.

Some people say that each sleeper laid in the tracks of the infamous 'Death Railway' represents one life that was lost during its construction.

Built by POWs and Asian slave laborers during WWII to connect Myanmar with Thailand, the line ran for 250 miles and conditions were so bad that disease, malnutrition and exhaustion wiped out most of the people forced to work on it.

On this fascinating tour, you'll be collected from Bangkok and driven to the town of Kanchanaburi, where you can enjoy lunch in a local restaurant and pay homage to those who took part in this dangerous project.

Cross the bridge on foot, see the amazing scenery that defies its dark history and see original parts of the bridge, now displayed in the War Museum.

Visit two well-cared-for cemeteries, now home to roughly 9,000 soldiers, and get a real insight into the harsh realities of war.
