In the afternoon we bicycle around the beautiful town of Kanchanaburi, visiting the Kao Poon Cave and Chung Kai War Cemetery. We then return to Kanchanaburi for the main attraction in the town: the Bridge over the River Kwai. We return to the resort for dinner. The remainder of the evening is at your leisure.

Day 2: Nong Bang
After breakfast we continue to Sai Yok National Park. We will visit a waterfall and Hellfire Pass on the WWII-era railroad. After a local lunch the trip continues to Hin Dad Hot Springs, where you can enjoy waters that can reach 40 degrees. Don't forget your swimsuit! We then visit a local Karen village called Nong Bang, followed by a 4WD-car ride deep into the jungle. Here begins a 4-5 hour trek through bamboo forests. The trekking ends at a bamboo hut in the middle of the jungle where you will stay overnight. Be aware that staying in the jungle means basic conditions (e.g., no electricity).

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Overnight at bamboo hut in the jungle.

Day 3: Nong Bang - Bangkok
After breakfast you begin the trek back to Nong Bang. This time, you will trek and bamboo raft. Back in the village you will dine with the locals. When you return to Kanchanaburi late in the afternoon, a train will take you over the tree-covered viaduct on the historical route known as "The death rail way". (About 30 min.) Your transport awaits you for the return to Bangkok. Expect to be back at the hotel in Bangkok around 20.30 pm.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

 
Note: Go Beyond Asia does not offer tours with elephant riding. In Kanchanaburi and outskirts, you may pass elephant camps and/or be offered elephant riding. We encourage travelers to make their own informed choices. Between March and May, the rivers are quite dry and may impact the ability to participate in the rafting.
