One can visit the Tham Krasae railroad bridge along the escarpment from the East side or the west side (most common). A tricky walk (be extremely careful) over the bridge offers splendid views of the river Kwai. There is a huge market opposite the Krasae...More

A short walk from Tham Krasae Station along the railway track past the Krasae Cave. Not for the faint hearted especially those with vertigo as one has a sheer drop to the river. Particularly dangerous if people come the other way with little space to...More

When you buy your ticket, ask for Nam Tok. You can only buy one way at the Kwai bridge ticket office. I think you can step off at Tham Kra Sae then jump back on the next train to Nam Tok. You may have to start on the early... More
