I’m visiting Bangkok soon. The Bridge over the River Kwai has always been on my bucket list. Is it possible to visit on a day trip from Bangkok? What’s the best way to get there?

The bridge over the River Kwai is a perfect day trip choice of a day trip from Bangkok. The River Kwai Bridge is just over 2 hours drive from Bangkok, and there are multiple ways to get there. The best way to visit Bridge is on an organized excursion. Many companies offer a day trip, either by itself or with a stop at the bridge over the River Kwai and other stops along the way.

Many trips include a visit to the Erawan Falls, one of Thailand’s prettiest destinations that I highly recommend visiting. The excursions usually pick you up straight from your accommodation. You may also get the chance to go on the Death Railway or go on a long boat ride along the Mekong River. The only downside of this is you may not have as much time as you’d like at the bridge, so you may wish to make your own way there.

Two trains per day travel from Bangkok Thon Buri Station to River Kwai Bridge station, taking 2 hours, 40 minutes, and three trains from Nam Tok Station. Have a look at the train schedules to see if they match up with how long you want to stay at the bridge. There are plenty more things to no nearby and great places to eat if you have lots of time.

A taxi is the quickest option if you decide to make the trip without a tour company. You should be able to negotiate a rate of around 1800฿-2500฿ per way.
