CRUISE THE RIVER KWAI

River Kwai Cruises by CruiseAsia

Enjoy our River Kwai Cruises on the fabulous River Kwai aboard the RV River Kwai, the first 5-star inland river cruise ship in Thailand built as a colonial-style river cruiser based on designs used by the original Irrawaddy Flotilla. Founded in Burma in 1865, the flotilla was by the 1920s the largest privately-owned fleet of ships in the world.

With an experienced crew of 10 and a multilingual Cruise Director, the ship provides superb a la carte meals served al fresco on the sun deck and an “amazing itinerary” that includes sights that were previously unreachable by any other means of transportation.
