An amazing day out with the informative and very lovely Pipop. Before we even went he had organised the day before with the hotel for them to make us a packed breakfast as it is an early start a but so worth it. He then flipped the itinerary so that we would do the waterfalls last as a refreshing way to end what would inevitably be a hot and humid day. Off we set - first stop a coffee shop to take the edge of two teenagers with jet lag - iced coffees to hand - first official stop ‘the bridge’. Set in beautiful countryside it makes it more difficult to imagine the horrors that both the allied prisoners of war and Romusha suffered. Closing my eyes made it easier - utterly overwhelmed, I ended up in full on tears which made walking across a little hairier than it needed to be. On to a little further along ‘Death Railway’ to view how it hugs the edge of the ridge and snakes out before you. Alongside a serene ‘temple’ in a cave in the rock face which when you are standing in you can view, in utter contrast, the railway before you. On to Hellfire Pass - what can one say - the Australians together with the Thai Government have done the memory of those that were lost, or who made it through the suffering and came home, proud. A really lovely museum - watch the short film - it is utterly worth spending the time doing so. There are two walks you can do from there - a 1hr walk and a 3hr - the 1hr takes you down through enough and is relatively easy although it starts and ends with steps so be warned on the thigh burn. It was all redone in the 80’s after a former Australian POW persuaded both governments that the elements of the Burma Railway should be preserved. Thank goodness he did, it is all very moving as well I imagine providing somewhere for people to visit to bring closure. On a practical note the toilet facilities are great and there is a water refueling station. Final stop Erwan Falls - 7 levels to climb if you are of that mindset - however levels 1,2 and 3 are good for swimming - tho you have to hire a life jacket. Pool two has some very friendly fish who will help with your pedicure! Watch out for the bigger ones!!! 12 hours door to door but worth every single minute. Pipop was utterly delightful and really knowledgeable and helpful so be sure to ask for him and you will not be disappointed. Thank you Pipop!
We had Jessie as our guide, get English, and great conversations. The transport was by private minibus, reclining seats and very comfortable. Can only praise the arrangements.
Jennie contacted the hotel the night before to ensure everything was set, and was waiting at the lobby on time to start the journey. This was truly a private tour.
The Erawan waterfalls is a favourite amongst
Thai people so it can get busy at level 1 to 3, the crowd thins as you go up. It's mandatory to wear a life jacket. Jennie arranged a golf buggy to take us from the car park to the first level, it's a long walk in the heat else.
Would recommend sturdy foot wear if you want to go above level 3, it's not too difficult to get to level 7, but it will take you time and won't leave much time for a swim and relaxation.
Lunch is at the park and included in the cost.
Hell Fire Pass is a must see to appreciate the cost to human life, a well presented memorial and very emotional.
The remainder of the time is spent visiting parts of the railway and end at the bridge of the river Kwai. This was a long tour, lasting over 12 hours, but this was luxurious and very private. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to get outside Bangkok and wanting some nature and history.
Jessie was brilliant!
Excellent day out. Ying contacted us the evening before to confirm arrangements and proved to be an excellent guide. She was friendly, accommodating and full of interesting information at all the attractions. She was also flexible as to how much time we were able to remain at each of the attractions.
Good combination of witnessing the natural beauty of the Thai countryside and the humbling Death railway.
Gret, our tour guide was very good. He knew his information and helped us and was happy to take our views on what we wanted to do. Gave us the options and let us decide. He was also very good at sorting out a vegetarian friendly lunch for me.
