Just imagine spending a few days on River Kwai and enjoying activities that are awesome, this is what River Kwai Jungle Rafts Resort offers adventurous travelers from across the globe.

Located about 60 kilometers from the heart of  Kanchanaburi town, River Kwai Jungle Rafts Resort  is where you can spend a few days before or after visiting the numerous attractions of the town. Kanchanaburi has a tumultuous history partially depicted by the book and movie classic “The Bridge Over the River Kwai”.  The town is a great home base to explore the country’s wild west and is a favorite weekend destination of Thais living in Bangkok.  It is just 130 kilometers from the capital city of Bangkok, and easily accessible by car, bus, taxi or train. The town itself has many attractions including the iconic Bridge Over the River Kwai, the Thai-Burma Railway also called the Death Railway, Hellfire Pass and Hellfire Pass Museum, Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, Sai Yok National Park, Safari Park Open Zoo, Hin Dad Hot Spring, and Kaeng Lawa Cave. From the town you must take a bus to Resotel Pier where you can take a long–tailed boat to the resort.

The River Kwai Jungle Rafts Resort is situated on the River Kwai and surrounded by lots of greenery.  It is where you can spend days of tranquility beyond the hustle and bustle of the city. This award winning resort features floating raft rooms that are lighted by traditional kerosene lamps, making it a truly eco-tourism resort. It has an open air restaurant which serves Thai and local Mon dishes, as well as western delights. Open daily from 11am – 11pm, the Jungle Bar is where you can have some drinks while listening to the sounds coming from the forests, or gazing up to the star-filled sky. Activities you can enjoy in the resort including jumping into the river as much as you want, canoeing, boat rafting, watch traditional Mon performances, and enjoy a relaxing massage.
