Description

Spend a day exploring historic sites throughout the Mueang region as you learn about WWII and POW labour camps. Travel by road, river, and railway as you visit a prisoner cemetery, examine exhibits at the JEATH Museum, and see the span made famous by Bridge on the River Kwai.

Start your day with early hotel pick-up (if option chosen) and head towards the Mueang region. Along the way, listen as your guide shares stories about the POW camps during WWII, and stop at a cemetery where 6,000 prisoners are interred. At the nearby JEATH War Museum learn about the harsh realities of war and observe mementoes that were left behind.

Afterward, head upstream along the Mae Klong River in a long-tail speedboat towards Bridge 277, the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai that inspired the book and film of the same name. Walk along the bridge, check out local street markets, and then climb on board a train to travel along the Burma Railway. Also known as the Death Railway, this section of track was infamous for its dangerous construction, built along the edges of cliffs and through deep sections of forest.

At the end of the day, disembark the train and take a walk through the jungle to reach a nearby restaurant where you can discuss the day's experiences over a delicious buffet-style lunch. Enjoy a wide selection of Thai specialities, ask your guide questions about any sites you visited, and then catch a comfortable return ride to Bangkok.
