River Kwai

visit River Kwai

On the banks of River Kwai, Thailand’s poignant years of war continue to touch visitors’ hearts in the lush jungle. As one of the focal points of the famed Death Railway, the translucent river is often a stage for commemoration and remembrance. Kanchanaburi’s highlight attractions like the Death Railway Bridge make River Kwai more than a natural sight. Each year, thousands of travelers visit the site to witness the war memorials peppering the area. But, you will also have a chance to experience life as it is in the small town of Kanchanaburi. River Kwai is a strong element of local living, and heartfelt scenes will accompany you on your way to the war memorials. 

While you are there, take a boat ride on River Kwai and approach the iconic Death Railway Bridge from the water. This is the best way to capture some impressive shots of the rather grim-looking structure. You can get off, walk on the bridge, and explore the surrounding area before continuing your tour. Floating jungle rafts, colorful fishing canoes, and riverside villages are the more cheerful sights that you will come across. This is also where the exuberant Thai flora is vigorous, creating some of the most scenic routes in Thailand. If you have free time, a handful of convivial cafes and bars offer a leisurely time watching the river views as you dine on traditional Thai food.
