I came to Kanchanaburi for this bridge on the River Kwai, which is very close to most hotels. It is recommended to come at dusk, first to cool off, second to take pictures, and third, there is a train arriving at around 5 pm, you can take pictures The train crosses the bridge. The water of this river is very clear, so I am very outside.
2.5 hours train ride to Kanchanaburi for River Kwai Bridge is truly worth it. Beautiful river scenery and awesome railway bridge. Train approaching and passed by beside was a thrilling experience. Enjoying local Thai food in their carnival tent with nice music & songs.
good for a getaway. nice and peaceful with no tv, radio. but good thing to have internet to stay in touch.
Another monument to WWII. realistically it’s a very touristy destination a lot of stalls selling brick and brack, T-shirt’s, hats etc etc. Unfortunately it takes a lot away from the place as Iam doubtful that half the visitors really understand anything about what the bridge signifies.A nice place for lunch and a quick stop and photo opportunity but that’s about it.
