River Kwai Train Journey

by lotus14121

I have only a short amount of time in kanchanaburi but was wanting to do some of the journey on the train. From what i have gathered it take 2 & 1/2 hrs to get out to nam tok, so my thought was to take the train to Thakilen and then a cab to return back to kanchanaburi. Does anyone know how much a cab trip would cost and how long it takes to drive ???

we got a tour bus out and trained back in - the bus was less than an hour from memory. You would be able to bargain for a car at the bus station.

HAve you considered doing the train trip to or from Bangkok? Check out the following: http://www.seat61.com/Kwai.htm

Travel Tips for Kanchanaburi

Pose for a while

by yen_2

When we visited the war cemetery, I was very anxious to have a pose and the background was all those graves. Whou didn't? I mean, it's not really very important but for the heck of this VT tips, I didn't smiling at all with all the backdrop of the graves...=( I've seen and done it also. Checking out the names of the POW's and noticed that some and many of them were very young when they died. It's worth checking out though..

MOSQUITO REPELLENT & GOOD SHOES

by Nina-Maarit

Good shoes are essential for caves (slippery!) & jungle. Shorts and T-shirts go almost anywhere, but take also trousers and long-sleeved shirt to cover your skin against the mosquitos at night. Mosquito repellent!!! There is a small risk of malaria in Kanchanaburi province, so be prepared! However, medication against malaria is not recommended for short trips (side-effects), so repellent and clothing are the best ways to avoid the risk. You might want to take a flashlight for the caves - it is also very useful at the River Kwai Jungle Rafts at night!

Longtail Boat Trip

by CandS

Almost definitely you will go on a long tailed boat trip while in Kanchanaburi...they are everywhere! We didn't meet a single person who hadn't been on the River Kwai in a long tailed boat while we were there. ;) It is a fun trip (although the engine can be loud) and you get to see some of the beautiful scenery along the River Kwai...

A moving reminder of the past

by traceyspacey

Thailand-Burma Railway Centre, gives an explanation as to why the Thailand-Burma railway was built and why people died building it. You also find out about the terrible living conditions and how local people helped without the Japanese knowing it. It made me realise just how many different nationalities were effected by this, not just POW's. There is alot to take in, maybe should be done in 2 visits. It was a moving experience. We wanted to see this before the Death Railway bridge, to give us a greater understanding.

Also found out that they used marmite as a medicine, to provide vitamins to fight against scurvy.
etc.

Well worth a visit. 80B for adults 30B for children

Bridge Over The River Kwai

by joyful_sun

Cross the bridge when you get there, but when you do be very careful because you can slip through the railings or planks and into the river! Sometimes, a train crosses it while the tourists are walking all over it, dont worry they have side platforms every 20 feet of the bridge where you can wait it out til the train passes. And dont worry the trains go ever so slowly. Do bring a hat or an umbrella with you, can get very hot. Lots of hawkers and vendors at both sides of the bridge. Quite touristy. Big parking space too. Before heading there, do stop at the Tourist Office along the main street to get more info.
