Trip to the Floating Market with River Kwai visit

Leave the hustle and bustle of Bangkok behind to experience two of Thailand’s most interesting and historic sites. First head to the Floating Market of Damern Saduak and look on in amazement as local vendors peddle their merchandise from their boats. Then proceed to the world renowned bridge on the River Kwai, built during World War II by prisoners of war and immortalized by Pierrre Boulle’s novel and David Lean’s film. Here you will visit the moving cemetery of Allied soldiers, home to 9,000 graves of prisoners of war who died whilst building the bridge. You will also visit the JEATH museum to learn more about this dark yet fascinating period of history before heading back to Bangkok.

Make the scenic journey to the Damnern Saduak district, just over 100 kilometres outside the capital, and witness the sights, sounds and aromas of one of Thailand’s most vibrant and captivating spectacles. A spectacular mix of colours, cultures and canoes, you cannot help but be enthralled by the seemingly chaotic canals, jammed full of local vendors conducting business from within their boats.

Then travel on to the town of Kanchanaburi and witness the famous bridge on the River Kwai. Visit the well-kept Wat Cemetery of Allied Prisoners, which contains the graves of an estimated 9,000 Allied soldiers who lost their lives while building the bridge and constructing the notorious "Death Railway”. You will also enter the JEATH Museum (standing for Japan, England, America/Australia, Thailand and Holland) to take yourself back in time to the harrowing era of the 2nd World War and the stories of thousands of prisoners taken captive in the thick Asian jungle.
