Our final port of call on our way home was Bangkok where we had a trip to the River Kwai. We hadnt realised until we were picked up that it was a private trip, just us with a guide and a driver. We were expecting to go on a bus. The guide gave us a history lesson on Bangkok and Thailand in general as well as the destination of our trip.
We drove for a couple of hours, stopped off at a War Museum, then caught the train to the bridge.
Onto the bridge.
And the River Kwai.
This large cave was used as a medical clinic for the prisonors of war.
A very tasty buffet lunch was provided for the tourist groups at this local restaurant.
After lunch we were taken to the War Cemetary where Australian, British and Dutch prisoners of war are buried.
After this was a 3 hour drive in peak hour traffic, back to Bangkok airport to wait for our flight home.
Charlie was very sad a couple of weeks ago because he missed Granny Wanny Wan (me), and Oompa Loompa Loompa (his Pa). So pleased it was smiles and cuddles when he met us at the airport.
