River Cruise on the RV River Kwai
3 night cruises depart Bangkok on Monday (upstream) or Thursday (downstream)
6 night cruises depart Bangkok on Monday


The RV River Kwai, the first inland cruise ship in Thailand, is a newly built colonial style river cruiser based on designs used by the original Irrawaddy Flotilla which was founded in Burma in 1865 and by the 1920s was the largest privately owned fleet of ships in the world.
The RV River Kwai carries a maximum of 20 passengers in 10 teakwood cabins (single deck) and operates on a 7 day / 6 night year round cruise program every Monday-Sunday and on a 4 days/3 nights program every Monday-Thursday and Thursday-Sunday. The RV River Kwai opens up an entirely new area for river tourism in Kanchanaburi province west of Bangkok. Every morning and afternoon land excursions are offered to visit attractions along the river including temples, historic sites, Khmer ruins, waterfalls, war cemeteries, hot springs, the bridge on the River Kwai, and local attractions, etc.

 

The RV River Kwai has 10 cabins which are located on the main deck. They are simple but elegant wooden cabins. The cabin size is 3 meters by 4 meters and they are individually air-conditioned, have twin beds, en suite bathrooms with a walk in shower, mini fridge & mini safe. Cabins have small balcony so it is easy to take in the breathtaking scenery while cruising on the river or  just lie back and view the scenery through the wall to wall windows.


Due to the early departure and late return time of the cruise, 
pre-cruise and post-cruise hotels in Bangkok are recommended.
