River Kwai Cruises by CruiseAsia

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