You will have an early start to this adventure by being collected from your Bangkok hotel between 0600-0630 hours for the 128km journey to Kanchanaburi.

Your first stop will be a visit to the world famous bridge over the River Kwai part of the Death Railway constructed by Allied POW's. Take a train ride along the scenic and historic railway route.

Lunch is provided at a local restaurant before continuing on to visit the poignant Hellfire Pass memorial.

A longtail boat will then take you to your luxury accommodation at the River Kwai Float House where you will stay for the next two nights.

After breakfast take a long tailed boat to visit the nearby Mon Tribal village. The villagers are rich in culture and uninfluenced by the western world. Take part in some jungle trekking before lunch.

The afternoon will include a visit to an organic herb garden and then enjoy some time at the resort where you can soak up the tropical setting.

Enjoy the morning at leisure. Relax with a good book or for the more restless, take a canoe to explore more of the waterways.

After lunch you will leave the jungle oasis and make a visit to the Thailand-Burma railway centre. This is an interactive museum and research facility presenting the history of the railway and is an educational and moving experience.

Here is where you may visit the Allied war cemetery - a memorial to the 6000 allied POW's who perished along the death railway line. They were moved after the war to this resting place.

Your journey will then continue back to Bangkok to your hotel.
