Following this feast we were to paddle our canoes down the river, a three hour journey! I felt to full to do any thing!
As I had inkling there would not be hot water during our tour, I had pre-booked the Felix River Kwai Resort before we set off on the tour. This was a treat at £30.00 per room per night B&B! It was a top end luxury resort. The Felix River Kwai markets its self as ‘an oasis for luxury and relaxation’. With its beautiful grounds and gardens, two swimming pools, nice rooms, the description is very accurate, and I enjoyed my deep, hot bath.Good Times Travel Services, who’s office is located on the main road towards the Bridge had provided us with a fabulous tour. It is possible to do this trip on your own, either by visiting all the places we did as day trips from Kancanaburi. Or, to hire a car and stay at the National Park Accommodation independently, you can book the Karan Village through the National Park. But, I an glad we did the tour with this company as thanks to our tour guide Noi and driver Chung, we ate many foods we would never have tried, canoed on the river (!) and did not have to worry about navigating our own way around. The cost of the tour was THB 6000.00 per person. (about £100.-+).
