Cruise along the River Kwai
Nestled on Myanmar’s border, just three hours from Bangkok, Kanchanaburi unveils history through the ‘Death Railway’ and ‘River Kwai Bridge,’ but the region’s true essence lies in boundless natural allure. Encompassing Asia’s vast protected realm, two-thirds of the province’s 20,000-km² is covered in lush forest.
Thungyai Naresuan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and three famed national parks – Erawan, Sai Yok, and Thong Pha Phum – grace the province.
Step aboard the RV River Kwai, Thailand’s pioneering inland cruise ship, an ode to colonial elegance inspired by the original Irrawaddy Flotilla of 1865. Hosting 20 passengers across 10 teakwood cabins, this single-deck vessel embarks on 4-day/3-night voyages, alternating between Upstream and Downstream routes each week.
Immerse in curated land escapades – temples, historic treasures, Khmer relics, cascading waterfalls, war memorials, hot springs and the iconic River Kwai Bridge.
For intimate gatherings, RV River Kwai offers exclusive, bespoke charter cruises for small groups upon request.
