Safety Tips
River Kwai Bridge Walk: If you are frightened of heights, then you probably shouldn't do this walk across the Bridge to the other side. The boards are narrow to walk on, ok until somebody else wants to get past and you have to step aside. When the Train comes through, there are side pieces jutting out that you step into.

Raft Trip: I did a Raft trip on the river Kwai which was quite nice. We were towed against the current, then floated back. Local children were swimming in the river and it was quite peaceful and serene. The problem was, as more people got onto the raft, the more water there was around your feet. My Sandals came apart (the glue) and were no good after that trip, they just fell to bits. My tip is Take your shoes and sandals off before you get onto the raft.
