I enjoyed walking along the bridge as it was something I wanted to do being a part of history. It was good to see a passenger train go across the bridge

We spent a few days on and around the river with DeeDee tours. Would highly recommend both. We definitely got the most from our stay and stayed on the river in the floating houses. Was a great experience and would love to go back.

Lots of history lots of suffering of British and Australian troops it is not difficult to locate but strangely not well sigh posted . You may want to park out side and walk in or by Tuk Tuk as parking is at a premium. A ride on the train is worth it if you have time.

We visited the river Kwai and the war museum on its banks. The boat ride to the bridge was most enjoyable. The boat driver gave us good opportunities to take photos, a good trip

We visited the Bridge as part of an organised tour of Thailand and Laos with Riviera Travel and the bridge was a wonderful part of the tour we did it by train and water taxi and they are both a must do to get both views.
