Arrive in Kanchanaburi
Arrive in Kanchanaburi at 9:00. After breakfast, disembark at the River Kwai Bridge station for a leisurely cruise along the river, guided by a local historian. Later on in the morning, join a visit to a war museum followed by an optional visit to the war cemetery. Return to the train, for an 11:00 departure. Enjoy an exceptional lunch and dinner on board the train during the journey to Butterworth.Kanchanaburi is 130km west of Bangkok in the valley of the Mae Klong River. During the Japanese occupation of WW II allied soldiers were used to build the infamous Death Railway along the Khwae Noi River (popularised by the film The Bridge Over the River Kwai). It is estimated that 16,000 prisoners of war and over 50,000 local labourers died during the building of the railway. Kanchanaburi is a charming town surrounded by picturesque countryside, and is well worth visiting, especially if you intend to go to the nearby Erawan National Park.
