    A really well organised trip that ran like clockwork! We started off in quite a big group, but ended up splinting to separate hotels, and so our tour continued with just two people, which was excellent! The Kwai Jungle Rafts were an incredible experience and I’d recommend to anyone. It was really interesting to hear the history or the hotel and everyone there was so friendly. Food was all delicious too.

What people are saying about Bridge Over the River Kwai

Great hotel, just be prepared to get the full dose of authentic jungle experience as the hotel does not have any electricity neither warm water which isn’t bad as it’s so hot and you enjoy a cold shower quite much. Hotel staff is very friendly. Very romantic in the evening as they illuminate everything with oil lamps and candles. The boat ride is great. Quite a long way from Bangkok in the bus but it’s worth it!

A really well organised trip that ran like clockwork! We started off in quite a big group, but ended up splinting to separate hotels, and so our tour continued with just two people, which was excellent! The Kwai Jungle Rafts were an incredible experience and I’d recommend to anyone. It was really interesting to hear the history or the hotel and everyone there was so friendly. Food was all delicious too.

Absolutely amazing experience. I got a thorough insight into the history of the death railway, as well as exciting rafting transport and a kind of open truck. Furthermore, the floating hotel was smashing romantic, all the hosts were sweet and helpful and nothing felt rushed. Worth the money!

Good break from the Bangkok metropolitan atmosphere. Very good trip with insight into another side of Thailand. The hotel is absolutely fantastic and it was incredibly exciting to meet the Mon people and experience their culture. Definitely recommended.

Very nice and lots of room for adapting to our needs
