This busy full day tour takes you first to the rural yet world famous floating market of Damnern Saduak, situated around 100 kilometers west of Bangkok. It is generally known as Klong Ton Khem Floating Market or Damnern Saduak Floating Market. Damnern Saduak has officially three floating markets. A narrow canal flanked with food stalls and souvenir shops forms the principal market at Ton Kem.
Farther south are the rarely visited markets at Her Kui and Khun Pitak. Photographers at Ton Kem will get their best shots from the bridge, which crosses over the canal, and from the produce shed on the right. Nowadays, the market is bustling with activity from very early in the morning until about 11.00 am.
We continue to the world famous bridge on the River Kwai, built during World War II by the prisoners of war. The bridge is located near the town of Kanchanaburi, 130 kilometers west of Bangkok. You will visit the well kept Wat Cemetery of Allied Prisoners, which contain the graves of an estimated 9,000 Allied soldiers who lost their lives while building the bridge and constructing the notorious Death Railway which the Japanese had hoped to stretch all the way to the Burmese border.
This tour will bring you also closer to the past, as paying a visit to the JEATH Museum the name JEATH is derived from Japan, England, America,Australia, Thailand and Holland, where the past has been created and relived with pictures and artifacts out of this time. We will return back to Bangkok in the late afternoon to your booked hotel.
