But that’s not all…take a train ride over the famous River Kwai Bridge, part of the infamous Death Railway built by prisoners during World War II. Visit Hellfire Pass Memorial, which houses a museum detailing the life of the Allied prisoners and Asian laborers who helped build the railway. Explore a night market by rickshaw. Travel to the “Golden Triangle,” where Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar meet, and visit a local tea plantation. You’ll also visit an elephant hospital and learn about their conservation efforts for this wonderful animal. Your budget-travel to Thailand is rich in experiences, sights, and welcoming people you’ll long remember!
