  • Overview

    Colours, flavours and aromas... All this and more awaits you in the real floating market in Damern Saduak. Complete your experience with a visit to the Bridge on the River Kwai and the JEATH Museum.

    Make the scenic journey to the floating market of Damnern Saduak district, and witness the sights, sounds and aromas of one of Thailand’s most vibrant and captivating spectacles. A spectacular mix of colours, cultures and canoes, you cannot help but be enthralled by the seemingly chaotic canals, jammed full of local vendors conducting business from within their boats.

    Then proceed to the town of Kanchanaburi where you'll see the world-renowned bridge on the River Kwai, built during World War II by prisoners of war and immortalized by Pierrre Boulle’s novel and David Lean’s film. Here you will visit the moving cemetery of Allied soldiers, home to 9,000 graves of prisoners of war who died whilst building the bridge and constructing the notorious "Death Railway”. You will also visit the JEATH museum (which stands for Japan, England, America/Australia, Thailand and Holland) to take yourself back in time to the harrowing era of the 2nd World War and the stories of thousands of prisoners taken captive in the thick Asian jungle before heading back to Bangkok.
