Thailand directory - River Kwai Jungle Rafts - Kanchanaburi

As dusk turns to night and the Kwai Noi river changes its mood, the cool evening wind reverberates the magical sounds of Mon music and their Balinese-like dance. Time drags on as the river moves. Our host tells folklor stories of the river over the wooden table under the candle light.
