With your guide, head north toward Kanchanaburi; the drive is the perfect time to get acquainted with the historical facts and statistics about the main attractions Kanchanaburi has to offer and that are included during your tour.

The Bridge on the River Kwai
See sights that reflect the hardship of thousands of soldiers as you pass by local villages with mountains scattered in the background. When you arrive in the morning, head straight to what best depicts the region — the bridge over the River Kwai, still used today, was the target of Allied bombing raids at the end of WWII and was rebuilt after the war ended in 1945. Internationally famous thanks to books and movies such as The Bridge on the River Kwai, the black iron bridge was brought from Indonesia by the Japanese military and assembled under harsh Japanese supervision by forced laborers and Allied prisoners of war. You will have ample time to look at the bridge and take photos here.
