River Kwai Day Tours:
KT102 Full Day Floating Market and Kanchanburi Tour
1,550 - 6,450
Damnoen Saduak's colorful and vibrant floating market and the river Kwai's famous bridge, war cemetery and museum. Option to elephant ride or visit Tiger Temple also included!
The tour will start with an early Bangkok hotel pick up before the drive to Damnoen Saduak. On route to Damnoen Saduak we will make two stops, the first being the fascinating market at Mae Klong which sets up along a working railway line and then on to a small palm sugar manufacturing operation where you can see the sweet palm sugar being made from the flowers of the palm trees. On reaching Damnoen Saduak we will board a long tail boat for the trip to the market. The boat trip to the market will offer you the opportunity to see the quiet backwaters and canals around this area of Damnoen Saduak. At the vibrant floating market you can stroll up and down the canals edges taking in all the sites and sounds that this bustling waterborne market has to offer and if you really want to get amongst the action then take the option to jump into a paddle boat. Following the floating market we will proceed to Kanchanaburi where we will take lunch then see the famous River Kwai Bridge. We will pay a visit to the very informative Thailand Burma Railway Center where you can learn about the bridge and the construction of the death railway as well as the harsh conditions of the prisoners of war and local population who constructed this railway. A visit can also be made to the war cemetery opposite the museum home to the graves of some 9,000 POW's who died during the railways construction. Following a visit to the famous river Kwai Bridge the tour will finish when we drive back to Bangkok and transfer you to your Bangkok hotel.
