Tijdens de Kanchanaburi excursie river Kwai stapt u in de footsporen van toen nog (2004) Koningin Beatrix en Prins Willem-Alexander in het stadje Kanchanaburi (Thais: กาญจนบุรี). De hoofdstad van de provincie Kanchanaburi en ligt aan de samenvloeiing van de River Kwai waar de beruchte burg uit de Tweede wereldoorlog te bezichtigen is. Bij het aanleggen van deze spoorverbindingsburg tussen Birma en Thailand door de Japanners zijn heel veel dwangarbeiders om het leven, waaronder ook veel Nederlanders.
Tijdens deze Kanchanaburi excursie river Kwai nemen wij u mee naar het museum en naar de militaire begraafplaats waar ook veel Nederlandse KNIL-militairen liggen.
S’ochtends vertekken vanaf uw verblijf in Huahin of Cha-am. We maken een Korte stop in Ratchaburi, even de benen strekken en mooie grotten te bekijken. Dan hebben we lunch op het vlot bij de beruchte brug over river Khai. Heerlijk!

Well worth the visit. All very surreal now with markets and loads of tourists to think of what happened in the pass.... The part replaced after bombing, proves how up and personal everything is. It not like the movie or watching something on TVlees meer

Really enjoyable place and definitely worth to visit. You start your journey across the bridge and find a little market... to the right side. On the other side there is a temple with a lot of nice motives. Also there you will find a small landing area for the river. Excellent place to take a shot when the train passes by. It goes very slowly to give the people on the bridge the chance to secure themselves in the small waiting aisles aside.lees meer
Just been to the war museums and cemetery. There had been a celebration the previous day that we missed. But the... Japanese imperial rising sun flag fluttering from the bridge towers?...really?...c'mon now...!! There are that many stalls and glittery shops along with restaurants etc that to me, it has become a bit of a disneyesque showground. Let you make your own summations though.lees meer
Historical place which has a sad past costing nearly 1,05,000 lives to build this engineering marvel during World War 2... period. It's a hard hitting reality that I felt slightly low when I visited this bridge.But it was beautifully lit for a program organised for this weekend. To walk over the bridge was a thrilling experience!lees meer
Best part is walking across and getting a view of the river. Other than that and the historical significance it just an... old iron bridge. Even having seen pictures of it previously I guess I expected more out of the experience than I got. Maybe the 2.5km walk there in the blazing heat had me a bit out of it. Still glad I made the trip out from Bangkok for it though.lees meer
Such an interesting place to explore. You can walk right along the train tracks (and if you time it right can stand on... the side as the train goes by). Lots of brilliant photo opportunities and interesting history. You probably need about an hour to walk the length of the bridge and back and take photos (it's quite slow going as it is quite narrow and packed with tourists). If you have the time, worth booking a ride on the train. You can also visit the nearby museum to hear more about its history.lees meer
Interesting history, nice view of the river and a chance to see a train from a very short distance, moving very slowly... (a great attraction for kids). The market next to it (mainly jewelry, but the regular stuff as well) is worth a visit as well.Bottom line - a nice place to stop for an hour or so if you are in the neighborhood.lees meer
