The day begins at 7:30 AM picked up at your lodging with our roomy Isuzu SUV.
About 10:30 AM we stop briefly at the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, the main prisoner of war (POW) cemetery for victims of Japanese imprisonment while building the Thailand-Burma Railway, also known as the “Death Railway.”
Shortly after we arrive at the Bridge on the River Kwai, a part of the Death Railway and immortalized in the film of that name in the 1950s. Still in use today, the Kwai Bridge was the target of frequent Allied bombing raids during World War II and was rebuilt after war ended. The curved spans of the bridge are the original sections.
Here you will visit the station, walk the bridge, visit the local market, and have a leisurely lunch.
After lunch at around 1 PM we will visit the Pang Chang Sai Yok Elephant Camp, where you can feed elephants, play with the elephants, or go swimming with elephants.
After visiting the elephants we’ll return to our vehicle at around 2 PM and head back to Bangkok, dropping you off at your lodgings around 5 PM.
This is a privately chauffeured tour, so all times and stops can be adjusted to suit participants’ interests!
