Our 2 night stay at River Kwai Jungle Rafts was the highlight of our 3 week trip to Thailand. Just getting there in an air-conditioned coach which then transferred to an open truck and finally the long boats speeding along the river, was a highlight and loads of fun. We were a family of 7 with 5 'children' aged between...

Nice and friendly staff, good organisation, nice (but spartan and clairaudient). The organised program was interesting but with still enough time to relax. Really nice tourguides! Would always come again!

I booked the entire trip online from the UK which I was slightly concerned about...but I needn't have worried. As a party of 5 I ordered 2 floating rafts. We were picked up from our Bangkok hotel at 6 am in a very nice private mini bus. We were then taken to the outskirts of the city to meet other...

Stayed 1 night and joined the 2D1N tour. Was pick promptly from my Bangkok hotel and transferred seamlessly to Jungle Raft. Room is basic and clean. Food is simple Thai dishes shared amongst my group. No wifi and electricity. The key thing to do here is to jump into the river and just float down. You can keep doing this...it...

We spent two nights on the rafts – having no electricity wasn't a problem and in fact it was a real treat to not have the incessant hum of an air conditioner going all night and it cooled off so much that I wished I'd brought a fleece! Missing hot water wasn't a big deal either. But if being plugged...

I stayed there for 2 nights. Overall I quite enjoy my experience there. It was very quiet and the river was so beautiful. It's the place where you can really relax and spend some slow time with yourself and your companions. It'd be perfect for quiet and peace seeker. You can also do a little adventure like swimming in the...

First impressions are very good. Well maintained facility, clean, extremely scenic, unusual setting and fun concept of floating on the river. 20 minute boat ride to the rafts is pleasant and efficient. Short walk to local village where one can ride an elephant for a charge. The rooms are really very basic and small - be aware there is no...

Have very fond memories of a fantastic two night stay here. If you like air conditioning and all mod cons then this is not the place for you, but if you want something very different then go. The experience started with the river boat trip to the hotel. The rooms were basic but clean and comfortable, and the lack of...
