Tour #61 Damnoen Saduak Floating Market & River Kwai

This most interesting excursion brings you to the rural floating market of Damnoen Saduak, situated 110 kilometers west of Bangkok. Continue to Kanchanaburi and take a scenic boat trip on Maeklong River towards the famous bridge over the River Kwai. After lunch, visit the Thailand-Burma Railway Center, an interactive museum, information and research facility dedicated to presenting the history of the Thailand-Burma Railway. The fully air-conditioned center offers the visitor an educational and moving experience.

Then visit the two well-kept war cemeteries, which contain the graves of an estimated 9,000 allied soldiers who lost their lives while building the bridge and constructing the notorious "Death Railway" which the Japanese had hoped to stretch all the way to the Burmese (Myanmar) border. On your return journey to Bangkok, stop at Phra Pathom Chedi, considered to be the highest pagoda in the world.
