River Kwai and Elephant Riding Tour - Hua Hin Thailand
Hua Hin Sightseeing
River Kwai and Elephant Riding Tour, Kanchanaburi, situated in Thailand's central plains is home of the historic Bridge over the River Kwai. Kanchanaburi is one of the most picturesque provinces in Thailand with jungle and rugged hills. For the archeologically minded it may be of interest to know, that a freak accident during World War II, led to the discovery of Neolithic burial sites in this area.
We travel west to Kanchanaburi, where we visit first the "Jeath" museum, which is a replica of the huts of P.O.W.'S (Prisoners Of War) who lived here during their captivity. The museum displays a collection of records and pictures made by P.O.W.'S held by the Japanese during World War II.
We then take a short boat trip to see the Bridge over the River Kwai, where we take the train over the "Death Railway". Our train journey ends close to the Burmese border, where we have lunch.
