We did a private tour through Viator. Private Tour: Thai Burma Death Railway Bridge on the River Kwai Tour from Bangkok. This is a great way to visit this important area. We had a lovely guide, Tum, who was both attentive and knowledgeable. It is...More

I love train journeys and this one was no exception! My boyfriend and I travelled from Bangkok and disembarked at Krasse Cave to walk the wooden part of the track! With only two trains a day you have plenty of time to explore the track,...More

A terrific way to see this part of Thailand. The train is comfortable and local sellers come through with drinks and snacks. The cost of a ticket is minimal and the two hours we were on it went by far too quickly.

The museum is dine. Small but ok. Doesn't take long to fo through. The prices are over the top. Not just for entry but for food and souveniers. Double anywhere else.

Pay the small fee for the train sit back and enjoy the ride. Alas, our history shows us the very grim reality of it's existence! Friendly staff and various traders of food and drink are coming through. Plenty of photo opportunity's along the way.

Take early train. About 7am. Train back leaves nam tok at about 3. You can also get a taxi for the day. It is about the 1500 baht.
