Activity itinerary

Erawan Waterfalls
  • 3h
  • Admission ticket included

The major attraction of the park is Erawan Falls, a waterfall named after the erawan, the three-headed white elephant of Hindu mythology. The seven-tiered falls are said to resemble the erawan. There are four caves in the park: Mi, Rua, Wang Bahdan, and Phartat.

River Kwai
  • 1h

The Khwae Yai River, also known as the Si Sawat, is a river in western Thailand. It has its source in the Tenasserim Hills and flows for about 380 kilometres through Sangkhla Buri, Si Sawat, and Mueang Districts of Kanchanaburi Province, where it merges with the Khwae Noi to form the Mae Klong River at Pak Phraek.

JEATH War Museum
  • 1h
  • Admission ticket included

The JEATH War Museum is a war museum in Thailand about the Death Railway built from 1942 to 1943 by Allied POWs under the direction of the Japanese, a part of the Thai-Burma railways.

The Thailand-Burma Railway Centre (Pass by)

The Thailand-Burma Railway Centre is a museum and research centre in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. It is privately funded and is run by Rod Beattie, an Australian who is an expert in the history of the Thailand–Burma Railway.

Khuean Srinagarindra National Park (Pass by)

Khuean Srinagarindra National Park is a national park in Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand. The park, centred on the Srinagarind Reservoir, is part of the Western Forest Complex protected area.

Prasat Muang Singh Historical Park (Pass by)

Mueang Sing is a historical park in Sai Yok District, Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand. It protects the remains of two Khmer temples dating to the 13th and 14th centuries. It was declared a historical park in 1987. Built in the Bayon-style, the temples date to the Khmer kingdom in the reign of King Jayavarman VII.

Bridge Over the River Kwai
  • 45m

Called the "Bridge on the River Kwai" because of the famous film of the same name, the Death Railway Bridge is the best-known historical landmark in Kanchanaburi. It was erected through the forced labour of British, Dutch, and American prisoners of war during WWII.

The Thailand-Burma Railway Centre (Pass by)

The well-curated exhibits of the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre provide an excellent overview of the railway's history and the brutal conditions suffered by the POWs and forced labourers who built it. Poignant personal accounts, photographs, artefacts, and videos illuminate this dark slice of history, from the Japanese invasion to the lives of some of the survivors after the war.

Hellfire Pass Interpretive Centre and Memorial Walking Trail (Pass by)

The Hellfire Pass is a 500-meter-long portion of rock that 1,000 prisoners of war dug out (by hand) to pave the way for the Death Railway. Seven hundred of those men died during the 12-week digging period. Today, it's possible to walk the old railway track into the jungle (which takes about four to five hours), and visit a memorial museum honouring those who died. Established by the Australian government to honour Allied POWS, the museum tells the poignant stories of these men through artefacts, tools, photos, and multimedia displays.

Bang Kao (Pass by)

Step back 4,000 years to the Neolithic period and marvel at artefacts from deep into Thai (and human) history at this intriguing museum on the banks of the Kwai Noi River. Founded at the site of a Neolithic burial centre discovered by an Allied prisoner of war, Ban Kao National Museum displays the remains of several skeletons, bone jewellery, shell ornaments, tripod pots, axes, and other articles excavated from the area.

Sai Yok Yai Waterfall (Pass by)

This is a waterfall fit for a king. Indeed, King Rama V once visited this site, and it's been praised in Thai songs and poems. The falls are found within the Sai Yok Yai National Park, but are set back three kilometres from the road, so be prepared to do some walking or hop on a motorbike. You can take a dip in the river or skim along it between the towering rock walls.

Srinagarind Dam (Pass by)

The Srinagarind Dam is an embankment dam on the Khwae Yai River in Si Sawat District of Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand. The purposes of the dam are river regulation and hydroelectric power generation. The dam's power station has a 720 megawatts capacity of which 360 megawatts is pumped storage. The dam was named after Princess Srinagarindra

Phra That Cave (Pass by)

Cave and waterfall

Chinatown - Bangkok (Pass by)

Bangkok's Chinatown is a colourful, exotic and pleasingly chaotic area, packed with market stalls and probably the highest concentration of gold shops in the city. During major festivities like Chinese New Year and the Vegetarian Festival, the dynamism and spirit of celebration spread across town like wildfire, and if you happen to be around, don’t miss an opportunity to witness Chinatown Bangkok at its best.

Sky Bar, Bangkok (Pass by)

Sky Bar boasts sweeping views from the top of State Tower, one of Bangkok's tallest buildings. With its highly visible golden dome, the bar is tucked away in a corner of the award-winning, open-air Sirocco restaurant on the 64th floor. Sky Bar's counter is illuminated and changes colour every few minutes.

Chatuchak Weekend Market (Pass by)

Once only popular among wholesalers and traders, Chatuchak Weekend Market has reached a landmark status as a must-visit place for tourists. Its sheer size and diverse collections of merchandise will bring any seasoned shoppers to their knees. The market is home to more than 8,000 market stalls. On a typical weekend, more than 200,000 visitors come here to sift through the goods on offer

Damnoen Floating Market (Pass by)

The pioneer of Bangkok floating markets, Damnoen Saduak continues to offer an authentic experience despite its increasingly touristy atmosphere. Imagine dozens of wooden row boats floating by, each laden to the brim with farm-fresh fruits, vegetables or flowers. Food vendors fill their vessels with cauldrons and charcoal grills, ready to whip up a bowl of ‘boat noodle’ or seafood skewers upon request. The market is around 100 km southwest of Bangkok.

Jim Thompson House (Pass by)

Jim Thompson’s 3 decades of dedication to the revival of Thai silk, then a dying art, changed the industry forever. After he mysteriously disappeared into the jungles of Malaysia, he left a legacy behind, which is reflected through his vast collections of Thai art and antiques now on display at the Jim Thompson’s House and Museum. It's a lovely complex of 6 Thai-style teakwood houses that are preserved in their original glory.

Asiatique The Riverfront (Pass by)

Asiatique: The Riverfront is a successful combination of 2 of Bangkok’s most popular shopping experiences: a night bazaar and a mall. You can find it 10 minutes downriver from the Saphan Taksin BTS Skytrain Station. Once a bustling international trade port, it has been transformed with over 1,500 boutiques and 40 restaurants housed inside a huge replica warehouse complex.

Chao Phraya River (Pass by)

One of the most scenic areas, the Chao Phraya riverside reflects a constantly changing scene day and night: water-taxis and heavily laden rice barges chugging upstream, set against a backdrop of glittering temples and luxury hotels. The areas from Wat Arun to Phra Sumeru Fortress are home to some of the oldest settlements in Bangkok, particularly Bangkok Noi and its charming ambience of stilt houses flanking the complex waterways.

SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World (Pass by)

SEA LIFE Bangkok Ocean World is a large aquarium that is 3 storeys underneath the glitzy Siam Paragon shopping centre. It’s an aquatic wonderland the size of 3 Olympic swimming pools – the underground aquarium is one of the largest in Southeast Asia.

Assumption Cathedral (Pass by)

Assumption Cathedral is Bangkok's principal Roman Catholic cathedral and the main church of the Archdiocese of Bangkok, which dates back to 1662. Located in Bang Rak, the church was built between 1910 and 1918 to replace an earlier church on the same spot and was repaired after sustaining severe damage during World War II. Pope John Paul II visited the church during his trip in 1984. To get to the church, you can either take a taxi or embark on the Chao Phraya Express Boat to Oriental Pier.

Phra Sumen Fort (Pass by)

14 forts were built during the reign of King Rama I to protect the borders of the Old City, but most have disappeared over the years. Only Phra Sumen Fort and Mahakhan Fort have managed to remain in Bangkok.

Holy Rosary Church (Pass by)

The Holy Rosary Church was originally built on the banks of the Chao Phraya River in 1768, following a land grant by King Rama I. The Portuguese Catholic church that you can see near the Bangkok riverside today is the result of rebuilding work between 1891 and 1898.

Suan Pakkad Palace Museum (Pass by)

Suan Pakkad Palace is a place to find visions of Thailand you thought long since vanished in Bangkok. Its name means 'cabbage patch', referring to times when the land was nothing more than just that. Today, however, it's a well-tended tropical garden with serene ponds surrounding 8 traditional Thai houses, each of which brims with fine arts, antiques and oddities belonging to Prince and Princess Chumbhot

Bangkok Art & Culture Centre (BACC) (Pass by)

Bangkok Art and Cultural Centre (BACC) offers a wide range of contemporary art, design, music, theatre and film.

Baiyoke Sky Tower (Pass by)

At 304 metres tall, Baiyoke Tower II is one of Bangkok's (and Thailand's) tallest buildings. The 88-storey building has a public observatory deck on the 77th floor, while the top floor is an open-air, 360-degree revolving roof deck (an admission applies). Both venues offer a bird's-eye view of the sprawling Thai capital. Baiyoke Sky Hotel covers from the 22nd to the 74th floor.

Bangkok Butterfly Garden and Insectarium (Pass by)

Bangkok Butterfly Garden & Insectarium is where you can take the family for a day out admiring nature’s artistry in Chatuchak. You enter the huge and lofty enclosure of the conservatory with rockeries, shady ferns, wildflowers and a cooling waterfall – all the elements that make up the insects' natural habitat.

Sri Maha Mariamman Temple (Pass by)

Sri Maha Mariamman Temple is a Hindu temple dedicated to the Goddess Mariamman. It was built by Tamil immigrants in the 1860s, featuring a riotous blend of rich colours and ornate decoration that makes for rather unexpected sight in Silom. It’s a great site for a little taste of Indian architecture right in the heart of Bangkok.

King Rama I Monument (Pass by)

The monument of King Rama I, otherwise known as King Puttayodfa, is a double lifesize monument to the Thai royal that was built to mark the city's 150th anniversary in 1932. It was built along with the Puttayodfa Memorial Bridge next to which it sits.
