Gay Tour to Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai

Kanchanaburi is full of historic sites, fascinating scenes, and serene natural wonders. If you have three days it is a perfect romantic get-away with that special someone!

One Day Tour

Morning departure with your private car, driver and guide. On the way to Kanchanaburi , wonder at Phra Pathom Chedi , the tallest Buddhist stupa in the world, which towers over the provincial city of Nakhon Pathom .

Arrive at the Bridge over the River Kwai for lunch and then tour the chilling Allied Prisoner of War Museum . Finish your afternoon roaming the haunting, 800-year-old ruins of Prasat Muang Sing , the westernmost outpost of the ancient Khmer empire. Day trippers will return to Bangkok.

Immortalized in film, the River Kwai is only a few hours from Bangkok by road. See the Death Railway in a day or stay longer to see the many other historical and natural wonders near the border with Myanmar.  If you have more than a day, why not spend the night on a floating raft house and hike to glorious waterfall-fed pools.

Three-Day Tour

Those who opt for the three-day stay will have a choice of hotels including a floating river raft hotel at the edge of the jungle. This evening, we'll treat you to dinner along with an exotic show by Mon dancers , an ancient people who inhabit lower Burma and central Thailand.

On the second day your morning is free to swim, take a raft ride on the river, or walk to a nearby Mon village for an elephant ride.

After lunch, take a two kilometer hike through the jungle at Erawan National Park  (wear good walking shoes and bring your swimsuit and a towel). The trail weaves past seven levels of waterfalls  with several natural swimming pools along the way. Cavers may also find a couple of limestone caves nearby to explore. This evening you will stay in a charming garden bungalow near the river.

On the third day your morning is free. You might like to visit nearby Lawa cave  with your guide, just a short hike away from the hotel. After lunch, board an antique railway for a scenic trip down the gorge that winds along the River Kwai. This is the remaining stretch of the infamous Death Railway  to the Burmese border, constructed by the Japanese Imperial Army using forced labor. Our driver will meet you back in Kanchanaburi for the drive back to Bangkok.
