Our first stop of the day is to the War Cemetery, where thousands of allied soldiers now rest in peace. The well-maintained site is a place to reflect on those who lost their lives, while the exhibits tell a story of what happened here all those years ago. We follow the story to the JEATH Museum, just around the corner from the famous Bridge. Its exhibit displays a stunning collection of memorabilia, as well as “writing on the walls” in the form of murals and written accounts that creatively unpack the wartime history. Finally we’ll walk along the famous Bridge over the River Kwai (boat visits optional). There we’ll board the Death Railway Train, curving ‘round wooden bridges along the mountainside. The tracks didn’t reach all the way to Burma as the Japanese intended, but they certainly make for a wild and scenic ride!
Hello, my name is Nice and I was born and raised in Thailand! One of my passions is to take people around and tell them about my country and culture. Along with my other tour guide friends, Bonnie (who has a lot of experience showing tourists around), Sam (who is highly knowledgeable about Thailand's history), and Kwan (who knows how to take awesome photos), we want to provide you with an authentic experience that you'll never forget. Join our tours, see things from our perspective, and allow us to show you our home our way. We look forward to meeting you!
