This trip will take you to the ‘Bridge over the river Kwai’ in Kanchanaburi and visit the Burma railway track. If you like you can get to know more about the history of the second world war at the war museum before visiting Tham Krasea Buddha cave and your bath with an elephant!

On this day we depart straight from your hotel in Bangkok to Kanchanaburi city and the first stop will be the Bridge over the river Kwai. From the Bridge over the river Kwai it’s not far to the famous war museum. Here you get the best impression about what happened during the second world war in Asia and Thailand.

You will have some free time to stroll around and walk along the Bridge over the river Kwai. If you want to make a boat ride over the river that’s fin and a lot of fun. This is great to cool down from the tropical weather and to let the wind blow trough your hair.

After lunch you’ll drive out of Kanchanaburi city to be on time to meet the Thai Elephants at the river. Here you will experience a real highlight on your holiday. You can bathe and swim with these majestic animals for a while in the Kwai river.
This is really great fun and it cools you and the elephants down from the tropical weather as well.

Instead of a visit to the elephant camp you can also choose to make a 45 minutes trek through the man made Hellfire pass to experience the hardship that the POW’s had to go though during WWII. Only one of both options is possible due to time constraints.

A wooden bridge next to a high cliff is the most stunning part of the Birma railway. You’ll walk along this bridge and visit the holy and revered  Tham Krasea cave as well. After a day with so much variety and visiting some of the most famous historical sites of Thailand your private guide and driver will take you back to your hotel in Bangkok.

We had the wonderful Angela as our guide for a 2 day tour of Bangkok.
First thing she did was to plan the trip according to our interests, it was a completely custom made itinerary!
She always had the right information at hand and a big, contagious smile on her face. And lots of patience with us!
Loved the authentic, not so touristy floating market we stopped for lunch on the second day!
Definitely recommended and we’ll surely be back for more!


We had only one day to visit Bangkok for the first time and without this tour we couldn’t have seen so much in such good conditions. Our guide, Tommy, was very helpful, he provided lots of informations and explanations about the city and he answered all our questions and requests. We saw the highlights of the city, in very good conditions. Yes, it might be a little expensive, but for us (a family with 2 teenagers) it was the only way to see Bangkok in only one day. I really appreciated the quick renspose of Olaf before our trip, and his support when we were planning the tour. I really recommend this experience!


I can’t say enough about Thai Sabai Life — professionalism, attention to detail, tailored itinerary, private van and tours, historical and cultural context to deepen your experience, special surprises that connect you to the culture and create memories. If you want an experience in Thailand that’s about YOU and not a cookie-cutter or large group program, choose Thai Sabai Life. The one-day Bangkok Old City tour was informational, fun and at times moving, and was an excellent start to our 8 day journey. Angmo is amazing! We loved her personal insights and fun personality, and appreciated all she did to ensure we had a wonderful experience.
