If this is the Royal River Kwai Resort & Spa it is about 10 -15 mins out of town, so you will need taxi's to go to and fro. Has wonderful views of the river, almost on it, and a great pool for relaxation.

Just which hotel is hard to tell from your query. Could also be Oriental Kwai Resort or Felix River Kwai Resort. All are about 10 -15 mins from town. All similar position ie on the banks of the river

Cheers

Travel Tips for Kanchanaburi

Pretty Triangle

by yen_2

After visiting the JEATH MUSEUM, I saw this very pretty golden color phrang which dominates infront of the gate before entering the Wat which I didn't know. The golden 3 phrangs is the Burma-Thailand Golden Triangle.

A great chill out spa

by Soidogs

I was given a flyer for Suan Nanachaat spa when I bought a bus ticket in Bangkok. It's out of kanchanaburi town but they have a free taxi. I was thinking about spending 2-3 hours getting a massage but I ended up staying for the whole day. The spa is set in a beautiful garden where there are salas for relaxing. The treatments were the best I have ever had, the place is a great mix of professional and laid back. It's really clean - every time I went to the bathroom it has been cleaned and there were fresh towels etc. The owners were very friendly and welcoming, they gave me loads of local info. There are so many massage shop along the tourist road, they are cheap but I didn't like the look of them. This place is more expensive but it's still reasonable. I paid 2,500 Baht for over 6 hours of treatments. It was worth every Baht. There is also a small menu with homemade bread sandwiches and salads. The food was yummy.

Motorcycles

I've seen alot of this one around the place. Even those young girls are riding there own cycles. I've been told that most of those young gilrs are in their young teens. And I've been asking a local in there if its possible to rent like that one there, then they told me most of the hotels has it's own rent a motorcycles? or I heard it wrong? I don't know...my thai language isn't that good yet!

The bridge over River Kwai

by mim95

The steel bridge was made famous by the movie "The Bridge on the River Kwai", a movie about the building of the the railway from Thailand to Burma by the Japanese during WWII. The railway is also dubbed the Death Railway as thousands of PoWs and labourers died during the construction of the railway, as their living and working conditions were horrible and they were forced to work long hours everyday. The bridge was bombed many times during the war.

You can walk across the bridge and there are many small lookout areas on either side of the bridge that you can take photos. Just be careful when you walk as you can fall down into the river if you aren't careful! It is a nice place to watch the sunset.

No admission charge.

Kwai Yai bridge over the Kwai Yai river

by Fariz

Visit and cross the Kwai Yai bridge over the namesake river. Part of the "Death Railway" built by the Japanese during the World War II using the British and other allied POWs, the total cost of the "Death Railway" and Kwai Yai bridge, when completed, stood at 16,000 lives of these prisoners, who died from exploitation, malaria and other diseases. The railway and bridge were meant to cut the time in shipping arms and other supplies to the Japanese troops in Burma and eastern India via the newly-built railroad link through Thailand and Burma, but, with the tide of war beginning to shift in favor of the Allies, the bridge was bombed several times after it was completed in 1943. The massive steel girders and plates of the bridge still bear the trademarks of the Japanese war-time steel works. Today the bridge stands silent and unassuming witness, in a serene and tranquil setting of the surrounding jungle, to the times of human pain and suffering when it was born.
