Kanchanaburi Explorer

Day 1 Bangkok - Kanchanaburi - Death Railway - Kwai Noi

We head west out of Bangkok and visit historical sights in Kanchanaburi - the War Museum, the War Cemetery and the famous bridge. We then board the local train for a stunning ride on the Death Railway. After lunch and a visit to Krasae caves we start biking along some great trails, passing by some teak plantations and small Thai villages, on our way to Prasat Mueang Sing. This historical site covering some 74 hectares is believed to have been used by the Khmer Empire as a trading point along the Kwai Noi River. We ride around the park and visit the museum before packing up the bikes and driving the short way to our riverside hotel.

Day 2 Ban Kow - River Kwai Noi

Today we’ll spend most of the day on the bike as we cycle at a leisurely pace along some great trails. This ride is filled with a vast array of colours as we have the red laterite trails, the greens of the jungle and of course the blue skies. This trail has some stunning views of the valleys that surround this area and we ride through some great jungle and farmland. The cycling is a little more challenging than the previous day’s ride with some undulating terrain and a gentle climb of about 2 km (but can be avoided). This ride gives us a great chance to see the rolling hills that separate Burma from Thailand. We arrive at our riverside hotel by late afternoon and can choose to relax by the pool, or arrange to have a massage or take a boat trip to visit a Mon village.

Day 3 Kwai Noi - Hellfire Pass - Bangkok

The ride today is a bit more challenging. Although the ride is mainly downhill there are a few small uphills but nothing too strenuous. The main downhill needs to be taken with some caution as it is partly off-road and a little bit steep. The reward is to do some riding on the trail through primary jungle and follow a small river which meanders down to the river Kwai Noi and makes for a stunning ride. Once we have completed the ride we take a short hop across the river to visit Hellfire Pass, the name given to the 1000m of mountain cut through rock and soil with only the most rudimentary implements by prisoners of war. We also have a chance to visit the museum before a local lunch. After lunch we return to Bangkok and drop you off at your hotel.
