Surrounded by nature, located right on the river banks of the Kwae Noi River, and offering quality glamping opportunities for guests with a zest of adventure, a 2 day experience at Hintok Tented Camp brings out the best of what Kanchanaburi has to offer.
Labelled as one of Thailand’s provinces for history and adventure, Kanchanaburi is drenched in travel possibilities. The knowledge that huge parts of World War II history remain visible up until today here has drawn an increasing amount of visitors to stay the night over, just to grasp the intensity and comprehension of what lies in store. One of the first glamping sites along the Kwae Noi River forms your base in gaining a deeper insight in the atrocities of war, seamlessly blending in with what can be described an overdose of nature, rivers and mountains. It is Hintok River Camp where you want to be when adding an adventurous flair in your overnight stay during this 2 days’ well-balanced undertaking, guided by local experts.An early departure from Bangkok (between 06:00 and 06:30 hrs) marks the start of your 2 day venture in Kanchanaburi. The 130-kilometer drive, accompanied by a guide and driver in western direction sees you arriving at Kanchanaburi at around 09:00 hrs. We start the morning with visiting the interactive Thailand – Burma Railway Centre, an air-conditioned display of the size, the working conditions, and those perished during the construction of this railway project during the 2nd World War. The nearby War Cemetery of allied prisoners adds a sense of reality to this morning; with over 6000 graves of those deceased during these years are meticulously maintained for all to wander around in silence. We continue making our way further towards the Hintok River Camp where we check in and enjoy lunch. Nearby the camp, the Hellfire Pass is one of the most significant reminders of what the POW’s had to endure to get the project completed. Aside from a museum the walk through the pass brings certainly some emotions out of those with a keen interest learning of the hardship of thousands of soldiers. The afternoon ends with a ride back to your overnight address where we head out on mountains bikes to explore the region further and find yourself waving at playing children at one of the nearby village. Dinner and overnight at the Hintok River Camp complete the first day.Those willing to pay respect to the few monks that live around here, we can make a renewed biking trip for guests to give alms to these devote followers of the Lord Buddha’s teachings. We will return before breakfast is served and pack your bags for check-out. From the tented camp, a long tail boat brings you to visit a local Mon settlement, located behind the famous Jungle Rafts. Our final part of the morning and afternoon includes heading down to one of the railway stations to take a ride over the original DEATH railway back towards Kanchanaburi. Lunch is included before the start of the rail journey. We’d expect to disembark the train after an approximate 1 hour and 20 minutes’ train ride where our driver awaits and brings you back in all comfort to Bangkok. Depending on traffic, we’d expect to arrive in the Thai capital at around 18:00 hrs.
