Floating Markets and Bridge on River Kwai Tour from Bangkok
From US$87.46
Overview
Visit a colorful floating market and the Bridge over the River Kwai on a full-day guided tour from Bangkok into the lush Kanchanaburi region. Combine two top destinations to make the most of your travel time. Cruise past boats piled high with fruits and handicrafts, stand on the famous bridge, learn about Thailand’s World War II-era history, and tour the moving JEATH War Museum.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Bangkok hotel, then trade city streets for a landscape of salt fields and rice paddies. When you approach Damnoen Saduak Foating Market, among Thailand’s most vibrant marketplaces, board a longtail boat so you can go right into the midst of the market’s floating vendors.
From there, continue to Kanchanaburi, where you’ll pause for lunch in a local restaurant before visiting the Bridge over the River Kwai, a symbol of the 1957 novel that illustrated the plight of Thailand’s WWII-era prisoners of war.
Following your time at the bridge, head to the JEATH War Museum to see displays of pictures and artifacts from the period. After a full day of exploring the landscapes that lie beyond Bangkok city limits, this tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Made for turist. You pay for a transfer to the Float market, the boat take you to a lot os stores all with same products. I recommend to pick the fast boat to complete it quick.

Great day but long

We were picked up at 6:30 from our hotel. Then transferred to a larger bus. It’s 1.5 hrs to the first stop floating market, then another 1.5 hours to the bridge and 3 hours home including traffic. Plenty of stops though. Too many for me...More

Hi It can prove tricking getting and out of the boat used for the floating market and the seats are very low down, they are more like a canoe than a boat - the rest of the trip is done by car or on foot.
