Erawan Waterfalls
Erawan Waterfall is recognized as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Thailand. The major attraction of the park is the 7-tiered Erawan Falls with emerald green ponds. Erawan has seven separate tiers spanning approximately 1,500 meters through the thick rainforest of the park. The park are named after "Erawan", the three-headed white elephant of Hindu mythology. The top tier of the falls is said to resemble an elephant head. Admission fee for foreigners are included in your tour.

3 hours • Admission Ticket Included

River Kwai Bridge
Thanks to several films and books, the Bridge on the River Khwae has become famous and attracted both Thais and foreigners to the site. If an ordinary black iron bridge can tell a story, you can be sure it's a dramatic one. The bridge has steel plates over the ties to make it easy to walk over the span. There are also viewing platforms between the trestles to give you a view of the river as well as to give you a place to get out of the way if you're on the bridge when a train comes. You will have a delicious lunch at a raft restaurant near the River Kwai Bridge.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

JEATH War Museum
The name JEATH is derived from countries engaged in the WWII death railway construction from 1942 to 1945: Japan, England, America, Australia, Thailand and Holland. The JEATH museum displays photographs and illustrations narrating the living condition of prisoners of war (POWs) during that cruel time, some of which were donated by former POWs who survived. The museum building itself was also turned from the detention hut, used during that period.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Wat Tham Khao Pun
Wat Tham Khao Pun is a cave temple with a fun labyrinth of illuminated passageways. The marked trail is a bit of a squeeze in some places, but ducking beneath limestone protrusions to discover these subterranean shrines is a special experience that you can't miss it!

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Chong Kai War Cemetery
Chong Kai War Cemetery is your optional visit. You can tell your guide to visit this place if you are interested in Thai-Burma history. Situated only 2 kilometers south of town on the bank of the Kwai Noi River, the cemetery occupies the site of the Chong Kai which once was the prisoner of war camp. Its tranquility reminds the visitors of the war and its after-effects.

Very Accommodating!

Everything was amazing! Lin our tour guide answered all our questions and took us to the disappearing market, floating market, and coconut farm. We went to Erawan falls, but because of the heavy rain most of the hike was blocked off (after the 2nd waterfall) and swimming was not allowed. She instead adjusted the schedule to take us to skywalk. She made sure we had enough food/water the entire trip and bathroom breaks. She’s also an expert of taking photos for us. Olay (our driver) is a great, safe, and fast plus the AC is a lifesaver.

Our favourite part of this tour was ALL OF IT !!
Lin our guide was an absolute delight and went out of her way to ensure my daughter and I had a day to always remember. Lin was prompt with communication after our booking and was clear in all details relating to the tour. She took loads of extra photos for us and spoilt us with little extras during the day. I highly recommend using Lin as your guide. SIX STARS
The best experience I've had in Thailand

We had an amazing day and went to many wonderful locations. Lin was amazing & went above and beyond to cater for us. 10/10 would recommend doing this tour and Lin as a guide.
Amazing all-day tour experience

We had Lin and Olay as our personal tour guide and driver respectively for an entire day! Lin is very knowledgeable about all the areas and super friendly. The railway market was super cool, saw the locals scrambling to remove their stuff when the train left. It did rain hard unfortunately so the Erawan Falls were closed off, but Lin helped us replan on the spot and see the Skywalk in Kanchanaburi instead! Highly recommend for your Bangkok tour.
Great trip - highly recommend!!

The waterfalls were more of an afterthought, but they were great. We were surprised about the train market as well. Lin was a great tour guide.
