Khiri Travel has created a new short itinerary aimed at showcasing Sai Yok National Park, which lies just three hours’ drive west of Bangkok.
The new two-day/one-night “Sai Yok National Park Adventure Package” combines hiking, kayaking and floating accommodation on the River Kwai in Thailand’s Kanchanaburi province.
Guests can also swim in the Erawan waterfalls, which are considering among the most beautiful in Thailand, as well as enjoying an organic lunch wrapped in banana leaves, and exploring the 9th Century Prasat Muang Singh complex, which marks the most westerly known outpost of the Khmer empire.
The afternoon and evening are then spent in the 958km² Sai Yok National Park, with accommodation on the Krit Raft House. The second day is spent kayaking, hiking and cycling.
“Sai Yok allows guests to really dive in deep for a true Thailand nature experience – but with great meals and a comfortable river raft overnight,” said Marc Ruffet, commercial director of Khiri Travel Thailand.
Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai are most famous – or infamous – for the railway line built by prisoners of war in the World War 2, which inspired the movie “The Bridge on the River Kwai”.
