The Burma-Thailand Railway was built during World War II to link the two neighboring countries. On this leg of the trip, you'll pass over the River Kwai while traveling along the train's historic route.

- Bang Pa-In Palace once served as a summer hideaway for Thai kings. The grounds are decorated with gilded thrones and shrubs that have been pruned to resemble rabbits, elephants, and Ross Perot.
