The RV River Kwai, the first inland cruise ship in Thailand, is a colonial style river cruiser based on designs used by the original Irrawaddy Flotilla Company which was founded in Burma in 1865 and by the 1920s was the largest privately owned fleet of ships in the world. The RV River Kwai carries a maximum of 20 passengers in 10 teakwood cabins (single deck) and operates on a 4 day / 3 night cruise programme between Bangkok and Kanchanaburi. The cruise departs from Bangkok on Mondays (upstream), and returns from Kanchanaburi on Thursdays (downstream). The cruise operates most of the year but the RV River Kwai is usually put in dry dock between May and July.
