Day tour - Huai Mae Khamin Falls, Phra Tat Cave & The Bridge over River Kwai

Kanchanaburi Province in west Thailand is home to several natural and historical sites popular among both local and foreign tourists. Huai Mae Khamin Falls are located over 40 km north of Erawan National Park, quite similar falls with emerald green ponds, but much better choice. Due to it's remote location less people visits it.

What?

This one day tour includes a visit to Huai Mae Khamin in Sri Nakharin National Park, Phra Tat Cave a bit north from the falls and The Bridge over River Kwai in central Kanchanaburi.
