New Itineraries

2017 – Kanchanaburi

Beginning in Sept 2017 there will now be 3 options to choose from in Kanchanaburi. In addition to the previous ‘Classic’ tour there will now also be a culinary tour and a cycling tour for those guests that whish to be more active. Excursions in Kuala Kangsar will remain the same. Full details below:

  1. Classic Tour

Cruise along the Khwae Yai River aboard a local raft, taking in views of the splendid Thai teakwood houses along the banks. Your guide provides an insight into the building of the infamous railway and bridge, which were constructed by allied prisoners in World War II. After the cruise, board a coach to the Thailand-Burma Railway Centre and perhaps pay a visit to the Don Rak War Cemetery before returning to the train.

  1. Cycle Tour

Board a private coach to rural Nong Kao village for your hour-long bicycle tour. Cycle through the verdant rice fields, stopping for a fascinating demonstration at a local Thai farm and refreshments. Return to the Traditional Thai Wooden House for a relaxing herbal infusion before returning to the train by coach.

  1. Culinary Tour

Your guided tour begins with visits to a vibrant wet market and an acclaimed rice noodle house where you will get an insight into the traditional processes used. You then proceed to Wat Nue Pier to board a river raft and participate in a traditional Thai cooking class on board as you sail along the River Kwai. Disembark at Chong Kai War Cemetery for an optional visit before returning to the train by coach.

2018 – Kuala Kangsar 

From 2018 we will also be updating the Kuala Kangsar excursions. Rather than offering a city tour we will now offer guests a more authentic experience and will travel from Kuala Kangsar to a rural village set among the rice paddies. Here guests will have a choice of two activities. Details below:

  1. Traditional Village Experience

A chance to immerse yourself in rural Malaysian life. The villagers welcome you with a traditional martial arts dance before you sample regional food and drink and browse locally produced handicrafts. Enjoy a guided walk through the rice paddies to learn about the process of planting and harvesting before heading to a plantation where rubber, banana, and durian are grown. Your tour finishes with refreshments that include banana and durian chips produced from the plantation crops.

  1. Hill Trek

Your excursion begins with a visit to a banana and durian plantation. After sampling the delicious chips produced here, join your guide – an expert naturalist –  on a walk up the hill, learning about the local area as you go. Cold towels and refreshments greet your arrival at the top, alongside panoramic views over the village and surrounding rice paddies. Peer through the binoculars provided and you may even catch a glimpse of the train waiting at nearby Padang Rengas Station!

Please note: Guests are NOT required to choose their choice of excursion prior to travel, this will instead be handled at check-in. However, if guests do happen to call prior to travel and request a particular excursion please add a PGI to the booking.
