RV River Kwai Cruise

Cruise company: RV River Kwai Cruise

Cruise type: Midrange, Sharing, 10 cabins

Destinations: Thailand - Thailand

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.



Built in the colonial style of boats in the Irrawaddi Flotilla, a Burmese operation that began in 1865, the two-deck, open-air RV River Kwai provides visitors to Thailand the opportunity to see the inland regions along the River Kwai from a perspective that few get to experience. On this 156-ton, 120-foot-long boat, the emphasis is on cultural immersion. Lecturers and guides provide background information for the maximum 20 adventurers, who then get to explore the historic sites along the river, from Bangkok (Kanchanaburi) to Daowadung. The boat has only 10 cabins. All are lined with teak and have twin beds, in-suite baths and showers, air conditioning and room safes. All rooms are entered through outside passageways. The second deck consists of the vessel's "public rooms," functioning at once as a dining room, lecture hall, lounge, sun deck and observation platform.



RV River Kwai cruising on the River Kwai. It's the perfect way to see parts of Thailand that are otherwise inaccessible. Featuring modern navigational equipment and an additional pilot boat, it is the only ship able to navigate the 90 degree bends and shallow waters, previously thought to be insurmountable. The ship features only 10 outside facing, teak enhanced cabins with big picture windows and private bathrooms with showers. With an experienced crew of 10 and a multilingual Cruise Director the ship provides superb a la carte meals served al fresco on the sun deck and an amazing itinerary that includes elephant and tiger encounters, swimming under waterfalls and sights that were previously unreachable by any other means of transportation.

Stateroom Cabin size: 12.0 m2

Bed size: Twin size bed

Our staterooms are off a bit of luxury aboard RV River Kwai. As well, the cozy air-condition rooms provide a wonderful retreat from the heat and humidity.
