Floating Markets and Bridge on River Kwai Tour from Bangkok
From US$82.65
Overview
Visit a colorful floating market and the Bridge over the River Kwai on a full-day guided tour from Bangkok into the lush Kanchanaburi region. Combine two top destinations to make the most of your travel time. Cruise past boats piled high with fruits and handicrafts, stand on the famous bridge, learn about Thailand’s World War II-era history, and tour the moving JEATH War Museum.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Bangkok hotel, then trade city streets for a landscape of salt fields and rice paddies. When you approach Damnoen Saduak Foating Market, among Thailand’s most vibrant marketplaces, board a longtail boat so you can go right into the midst of the market’s floating vendors.

From there, continue to Kanchanaburi, where you’ll pause for lunch in a local restaurant before visiting the Bridge over the River Kwai, a symbol of the 1957 novel that illustrated the plight of Thailand’s WWII-era prisoners of war.

Following your time at the bridge, head to the JEATH War Museum to see displays of pictures and artifacts from the period. After a full day of exploring the landscapes that lie beyond Bangkok city limits, this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Great day but long

We were picked up at 6:30 from our hotel. Then transferred to a larger bus. It’s 1.5 hrs to the first stop floating market, then another 1.5 hours to the bridge and 3 hours home including traffic. Plenty of stops though. Too many for me...More

Worthwhile

Have to recommend a trip to the bridge over the river kwai. To see how fast the river flows makes me realise what a torturous time the POWs must have had. Damn those Japs. We also viewed the nearby floating markets which was very disappointing...More

I don't recollect seeing any pier pickup location listed. I would suggest you write to them and enquiry if they pick up from a specific location. Because the tour groups are small, they might be able to accommodate your... More
