Meeting at Bangkok airport or at your hotel by your French or English speaking Thai guide, then driving to Kachanaburi. Arrival and accomodation at your hotel by the river.
Breakfast at your hotel. Visit of the Memorial of the Pass of the Fire of Hell, honoring the memory of Allied and Asian prisoners of war who perished during the construction of this stretch in the jungle. You will be able to follow the path following the remains of the railway to better understand the difficulty of the construction of this way. Free lunch in a local restaurant. Embarkation aboard the train nicknamed the Train of Death, because of the many deaths (prisoners of war) during the construction of the way. Passage on the viaduct of Ban Loum Soum where the way is only supported by a entanglement of wooden piles, on the side of cliff. The train will take you back to the famous bridge, where you will be waiting for your car. Free time and return to your hotel at the end of the day.
Breakfast at the hotel. Excursion to Doi Mae Salong. You will see tea plantations and ethnic villages. You will go up to the village of Guomingtang, Chinese refugees opposed to the Chinese government since 1950. Lunch. Road to Chiang Mai, nicknamed the North Rose. Transfer and installation to your hotel. Accommodations in Chiang Mai.
Breakfast at the hotel. Then departure for the famous Erawan waterfalls. In the heart of Khao Salob National Park are the Erawan Waterfalls. They consist of 7 levels. The turquoise waters end up in the famous Kwae Yai River. To see the first landing, it is necessary to climb up to 1500 meters of altitude. No fear, there is no effort to provide since the entrance to the park is a few hundred meters away, just next to the bus stop. A landscaped path leads visitors to the first steps. After the 5th level, the climb is steeper and more difficult. Whether you go up to the last level at 2500 meters or that we stop before, we will inevitably fall under the charm of the place. The waterfalls are not big in themselves, but they are outlined in a slope that hosts all the lush vegetation and makes the landscape unique. The color of the water is then magnified by the surrounding green and calcareous soil. The water becomes turquoise in places, emerald in others. A magical place where you can swim in these slightly cool waters … bathers can then discover that the fish are there in numbers and come to eat the dead skin all over the body, it tickles …
Then return to Bangkok at the end of the day, transfer to your hotel or airport.
