Excellent Outdoor Activities in Kanchanaburi

September 3, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: ,

Home Phutoey River Kwai Resort, located about 250 km from Bangkok close to Kanchanaburi, is a 3-star plus resort with a reputation for excellent outdoor activities. Sitting on a hillside above the Kwai River, this resort offers a large lake and a natural hot springs pool on their premises.

In addition to pedal boating on the lake and relaxing in the warm mineral bath, the resort’s biggest attraction is their zip line adventure camp. This high wire network is operated with double safety hooks and secure lifelines at all times. Developed according to international safety standards by French specialists, it is possible to ride a bike and a skateboard and rope swing from tree to tree like a monkey. The highest platform is located at a height of 14 meters above the ground and the longest zip line ride is about 800 meters across the lake.

It is important to mention that no trees were cut down during the construction of this course and no nails are used to attach the lines to the trees. Other activities at the resort include a swimming pool, bird watching and jungle trekking. On the river there is kayaking, bamboo rafting and fishing. It is an ideal location for families because there is something for every age from very young children to adults.

Outside the resort less than 15 minutes drive is the Hellfire Pass Museum, a joint effort of the government of Australia and Kingdom of Thailand. This historic landmark commemorates the thousands of forced local laborers and allied prisoners of war who suffered and died constructing the Burma-Thailand railway during the Second World War.
