Overview
Arrival & Airport Transfer, Welcome Dinner, Day Ride, Cultural Dinner & Show, Thailand's Highest Peak, an Unbelievable assortment of roads & surfaces all the way from dirt to 6-lane highway! Visiting Mae Sariang, Mae Sot, Nakhon Sawan, Kanchanaburi, Kampaeng Phet, Tak.

As the name implies we spend a couple of nights in the town of Kanchanaburi, home to The  Bridge Over The River Kwae (Kwai is a buffalo!). The one referred to in the novel/movie was apparently destroyed by the Allies, this one was successfully bombed, taking out the two central sections. Numerous graveyards, museums and even a Train Ride along the infamous "Death Railway" tracks using many of the embankments & cuttings which cost "A Soul For Every Sleeper Laid". We pay our respects to all those brave Servicemen, POW's and Immigrant Labour who lost their lives under the most brutal conditions.
 
 
 
One Railway Cutting in particular, mostly overlooked by 99% visitors to the area - purely because it's over an hour's (quick) travel away from town; in fact is a "mustn't miss" you'll be able to see - each - and - every - hammer - blow - twist - blow - and - twist of the steel spikes they used to Hand-Drill the holes for dynamite charges into solid granite for blasting the 100' depth necessary for level track. If the evidence wasn't all around, everywhere clearly visible that no machinery was used, you would not, and still almost can not comprehend such an achievement.
