Full description
Day 1: In the early morning at 7:30AM, your personal guide and driver will meet you at your hotel lobby in Bangkok. You will begin with a visit to the floating market of Damnoen Saduak. Close to the market you will board a fast long-tail boat, which will bring you through the narrow "khlongs" to the market. At the market you will enjoy watching farmers selling fruit and many kinds of local products in their boats. If you want, you can take one of the paddle boats to cruise through the market (optional). Following this great experience, you will continue your trip to the bridge over the River Kwai, the Allied Forces Cemetery, and the JEATH war museum. You will then travel once more by long-tail boat to the Jungle Raft, a unique, floating hotel in the middle of the jungle, made from wood and bamboo. The resort offers a unique accommodation experience right on the flowing Kwai Noi River. All floating rooms are tucked into a floating bamboo lodge moored along the historic River Kwai Noi and surrounded by lush green mountains and jungle. At this "floatel", the historic River Kwai Noi flows underneath your bed. The walls are weaved from local bamboo decorated with wooden furniture reflecting the Mon living style (hotel subject to availability). Day 2: Following breakfast, your guide will take you by long-tail boat back to your private vehicle. After another 45 minutes to 1 hour of travel will take you to Erawan National Park, where you will find the most beautiful waterfalls in Thailand: the Erawan Waterfalls. The waterfall consists of 7 plateaus, and you can hike to the highest level through a small jungle path. After reaching the top, you will still have plenty of time to discover the natural fish spas, see the natural shaped slides, and go for a swim. Following lunch, you will be taken back to your hotel in Bangkok.

A sobering experience to visit the Kwai memorial and cemetary, but historical perspective well done. We watched a the train passed over the bridge and later saw where the tracks now end. Erawan falls was beautiful. After acending to the 7th level, we enjoyed soaking our feet in the cool water while the fish gently tickled them. Lunch was a nice Thai meal. There was plenty of food. After making our way to the longboat, we took a short ride to the Jungle Huts an the Kwai River. There was still enough time to visit the Budda cave and the Mon village. Dinner was nice and we had a peaceful rest on the river. The next morning we visited the floating market. There were few boats but still enough for the experience. We made back to the hotel mid afternoon. We highly recommend this tour. Neera was our guide and Sam the driver.
