Day 1: Transfer to Kanchanaburi - Bridge Over The River Kwai (-/L/D)

Distance Biking: 37km

Our friendly local guide will meet up with you at the hotel’s lobby at 08:00am. Then, he/she will brief you through the route you will take for cycling today. Remember to bring camera, sunglasses, sunscreen and comfortable cycling clothes. After the briefing is done, you will start with a transfer to Bang Pa-in. After picking you up from your hotel in Bangkok it is 2-3 hour transfer to Kanchanaburi and the famous 'Bridge Over The River Kwai.'  After walking across the bridge to the quieter side of the river we set up the bikes and begin riding. Today takes us on a very pleasant ride that first follows the course of the river, with a stop at a war cemetery. After a short uphill we leave the bikes to squeeze through a cave that sits in the grounds of a local temple. The remainder of the day is through farmland with everything from common crops like corn, rice and sugar cane to small patches of asparagus and chillies. Late in the ride we find ourselves riding alongside the very train tracks that were laid decades before by prisoners of war. At the end of the ride transfer to our beautiful accommodation at the Boutique Raft Resort.

Day 2: Hellfire Pass – Train on (B/L/D)

Distance Biking: 29km

After breakfast, starting the morning on bikes, we cycle small roads that slowly get narrower and eventually turn to dirt as we head into a beautiful forested landscape. The finale to the ride is a suspension bridge back to the land of sealed roads. The support van will then drive us up the hill to Hellfire Pass, where we spend some time to visit the excellent museum and walk along the infamous Hellfire Pass. From here a short drive brings us to Nam Tok train station, the modern day end of the train line that used to go all the way to Myanmar, here we'll take a ride on the Death Railway, travelling along a piece of WWII history. After crossing the perilous trestle bridge at Krasae Cave we transfer back to our hotel at the Boutique Raft Resort.

Day 3: Muang Sing Ruins – Return to Bangkok (B/L/-)

Distance Biking: 43km

From the resort this morning we ride a series of small sealed and unsealed roads that wind their way around villages and farmland. After a short section on the main road and a bit of an uphill climb we descend back towards the river and make a visit to the Angkor era ruins at Muang Sing. This region marks the furthest point west that the great Cambodian Empire once spread. After visiting the ruins it is a further 15km to the end of our ride, a late lunch, and the start of the 3 hour drive back to your hotel in Bangkok. During the transfer you can reflect on three adventurous days, cycling terrain made famous for its bridge and railway line but with a whole lot more to see than just war history. Tour ends with a farewell from our local guide and driver at the hotel or you can also book your next trip to visit Pattaya or Vietnam. Thank you for using our services. We look forward to serve you again.
