Rode the Death Railway train from Nam Tok station to Tha Kilen station - just outside of Kanchanaburi. This daily train still follows a portion of the historical Death Railway. A great one hour+ experience - hanging out the windows trying to get that awesome shot.Rental bungalows along the way.One of the local children waiting for the train to pull out of Tha Kilen station. School had just gotten out.Next day caught a ride into Kanchanaburi - to walk across the Bridge River Kwai - made famous in several books and movies. The bridge is still in use today and although it was partially destroyed through bombing raids during WWll, the curved spans are the original sections.
Walked across the Bridge River Kwai and caught a longboat from the other side of the bridge for a substatially lower cost - the long boat driver took us to see a cave further along the River Kwai.
