The JEATH War Museum was named after the nationalities of those that worked on the railway: Japanese, English, Australian, American, Thai, and Hollander. Examine exhibits from the war such as weapons, tools, uniforms, medals, and replicas of the living conditions the prisoners of war lived in. Make a quick stop at the Bridge over the River Kwai, where you’ll experience the subject of your earlier history lessons. At Tham Krasae Station, a picturesque railway section that snakes around a cliff, admire the views, see the trains pass by, and fill up on some tasty lunch. Enjoy a quick coffee break before stopping at Wat Tham Suea, otherwise known as the Tiger Cave Temple. Don’t miss the tiger paw prints on its cave walls and the large, gleaming, 18-meter-tall Buddha statue at the top.

Auntie Nancy was a really lively and energetic person, able to bring up the atmosphere and giving detailed explanation of the history of the place, will definitely recommend anyone else to join this tour, you will enjoy it!

The tour was well organized, our guide Niranya was very friendly and told us a lot about the country and its people. Unfortunately, the drive is a bit long because of the traffic, but nobody can do anything about it.
