2-Day Adventure with River Kwai Hintok River Camp
- Duration: 2 Days (approx.)
- Product code: PEUNEK
Set out on an adventure up the River Kwai, spending the night in a luxurious tent that provides both an intimate connection with nature and all the comforts of a hotel. Learn about the horrifying history of the Thailand-Burma Railway and immerse yourself in local Mon traditions and customs.
Leave from Bangkok and travel to the Kanchanaburi province. Arrive at the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre, an interactive museum and research centre dedicated to preserving the history of the railway. During World War II, more than 60,000 Allied prisoners of war were put into forced labour and nearly 13,000 died in the construction of the railway, which became known as the "Death Railway." Visit the Allied War Cemetery to pay your respects to the dead.
See the bridge over the River Kwai, made famous by the classic novel and award-winning film of the same name. Arrive at Hintok River Camp, a luxurious campsite that promises to bring you closer to nature. Enjoy a spacious canvas tent complete with comfortable bedding, a private bathroom, a shower with hot water, adjustable air conditioning and rustic wooden furniture. Eat lunch in the camp.
After lunch, head to the Hellfire Pass Memorial, a particularly deadly stretch of the Death Railway, where many labourers died while cutting through rock under infamously harsh working conditions. Afterwards, embark on a bike ride to visit a traditional village or farm, seeing how jungle life is incorporated into daily routines. Return to your camp and enjoy dinner before going to sleep.
Get an early start to the day by biking across a hanging bridge to offer food to monks in a nearby temple. This experience brings you closer to the local community and provides unique insights into a disciplined lifestyle. Enjoy breakfast in the camp before checking out.
Visit a nearby Mon tribal village, learning about their traditions and customs. The Mon were one of the earliest peoples to live in Southeast Asia and have a long and grand history. Eat lunch at a local restaurant before taking a trip on a historic train on the Death Railway, passing over an original wooden viaduct constructed by Allied prisoners of war. At the end of your tour, journey back to Bangkok, where a convenient hotel transfer awaits.
