Hellfire Pass Walk and Museum the Highlight of New Kanchanaburi Trip

October 12, 2010 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

Khiri Gold has introduced a new trip to the infamous Bridge on the River Kwai including a trip to Hellfire Pass and the excellent museum and walking trip there. It’s a three-day/two-night historical and cultural trip surrounded by great nature, starting and finishing in Bangkok.

The day one highlights include a trip to the Damnoen Saduak floating market and salt fields. When in Kanchanaburi, you ride the train over the bridge on the river Kwai. The afternoon is free to relax at the Hin Tok River Camp or you can ride a mountain bike to a village or nearby farm.

The next day sees us take a visit to the poignant Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum. There is then an informative four-km easy hike with audio tour which vividly tells the story of prisoners of war and coolies forced into slave labour to build the railway during World War II. After lunch, a longtail boat trip on the river goes to River Kwai Jungle Rafts where you can visit the Mon village and enjoy a Mon cultural performance before returning to the Hin Tok River Camp.

On day three the best part is the visit to the magnificent Erawan national park and waterfalls on seven levels. Swimming in crystal clear water is a highlight for many people who visit Thailand. On the way back to Bangkok visitors stop at the Kanchanaburi war cemetery.
