Begin your escape to Asia in the Thai capital, Bangkok. East exotic fruits at the floating markets, take a tuk tuk through the busy streets and visit the Grand Palace nestled in the heart of the city. You’ll spend a day in the once troubled Kanchanaburi area; although beautiful with the meeting of the Kwae Yoi and Noi rivers, the area houses a dark past as the one-time location of the WWII prisoner of war camp. Troops held here contributed to building the fames ‘Bridge on the River Kwai.’
After three-nights in Bangkok, you’ll head to Singapore, a cosmopolitan melting pot of influences from Malaysia, China and India. Spend to-nights in the city, before embarking Seven Seas Voyager for a luxury cruise around Southeast Asia.
Kanchanaburi sits on the banks of the Kwae Yai and Kwae Noi rivers, surrounded by limestone outcrops and fields of sugar cane. The location is beautiful, but its history was fraught, once famous as a WWII prisoner camp and the site of a railway line intended to stretch throughout British Burma to India. Visit the Jeath War Museum, filled with exhibits telling the story of the prisoners of war. Visit the War Cemetery, as well as the Bridge on the River Kwai, restored after the war, and ride a section of the Burma Railway, also hauntingly known as the Death Railway.
