You will learn Thai cultural and historical from famous sightseeing of the World. Both places are well-known and has been added on many films and movies in Hollywood.
Bangkok Damnoen Saduak Floating Market lies between Nakhon Pathom and Samut Songkhram, around 68 miles (109 km) southwest of Bangkok. The unique image of a traditional Thai floating market, like this one at Damnoen Saduak, is a powerful one for tourists to visit the way of forming an intrinsic part of community life in the canals near Bangkok. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is one of the most popular sightseeing tour from Bangkok because you can only see it in Thailand. The boat venders sell mostly fruit and vegetables on open Thai original boats along the slender canals. There are many stall traders selling a range of deliciously fresh produce. The boats at Damnoen Saduak Floating Market floating market’re paddled mostly by girls, who wear huge lampshade hats and the familiar Thai traditional ancient unique blue shirts of the farming community.
The River Kwai Bridge and railroad are largely modern constructions that replaced the original work of the Japanese River Kwai bridge. The Thai government eventually took over responsibility for it all after the end of the war, tearing down some of the River Kwai bridge and the River Kwai railroad as far as Nam Tok for the scrap iron. The government later requested help from the Japanese in the form of war reparations, and these included the replacement of the central girders with the present flat, boxy structures.
Although the story of the construction and destruction of the River Kwai bridge is charged with emotion, the modern-day crossing can be a disappointment—just a seemingly run-down wood and iron bridge mounted on ungainly concrete pillars. It comes to life when the twice-daily train departs Kanchanaburi and slowly makes its way across the rickety structure, on its way north to the terminus at Nam Tok. You can walk onto the wooden planks of the River Kwai bridge, but it’s also used by local motorcyclists, so be careful.
Several minor but worthwhile sights are located near the famous River Kwai bridge. These include an old steam engine, which dates from the 1940s, and a curious Japanese supply truck that could run on both road and rails. Just south of the River Kwai bridge, cafés overlook the Kwai river, and there are souvenir shops. An art gallery nearby is notable for its contemporaty murals.
A Japanese memorial in the area, raised in 1944, is euphemistically dedicated to those who “died through illness during the course of the construction of River Kwai bridge.”

A good way to get to Ayutthya—the great cultural center and capital of Thailand from 1350 to 1767—is to take a leisurely cruise up the Cho Phraya river from Bangkok by luxury boat. Then move ashore to take in the city’s magnificent buildings.
North of Ayutthaya is the historically important center of Lop Buri, one of Thailand’s oldest cities, which has been continuously occupied since the sixth century.
Just 30 miles (50 km) west of Bangkok is Nakhon Pathom, famed for its chedi: the tallest Buddhist monument in the world and one of the most revered in Thailand. The chedi is the centerpiece of some other wonderful Thai monuments, including a number of impressive Buddha statues.
West of the capital, Kanchanaburi is a place with a surfeit of natural attractions, making it a popular weekend getaway for Bangkok residents. Among visitors the area is famous for its River Kwae bridge and the Thailand—Burma Railway, otherwise known as the Death Railway, built for the Japanese during World War II by Allied and Asian prisoners of wars at a terrible cost of human life.
