What you can expect

Explore the awe-inspiring Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and world-famous River Kwai Bridge on a drive through Thailand's picturesque countryside. Take in the beautiful local scenery as you pass by time-forgotten local villages, vast farms and lush green plantations.

Be picked up from your hotel and make a refreshing stop at a coconut farm to see the local sugar making process. You can also have some drinks before reaching the pier on the way to Damnoen Saduak.

Hop on the long-tailed speedboat to travel through the klongs (canals) to the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market, get a glimpse of the local lifestyle along the river, and understand why Bangkok is called the “Venice of Asia.” See if any of the market's local fruits and produce catch your attention before heading to the town of Kanchanaburi for lunch.

Continue your journey to the River Kwai Bridge and learn about the history behind this iconic bridge from your informative guide. Stroll along the local markers and stalls for more memento shopping, then tour the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery of over 6,000 prisoners who died during World War II.

Before your return journey to Bangkok, make a visit to the JEATH War Museum, describing the lives of Japanese soldiers and prisoners from England, Australia, America, and Holland.
