About This Tour
New for 2019, TBB Tours is extremely proud to be able to offer an opportunity to experience the annual Australian and New Zealand Army Corps memorial service at Kanchanaburi. This is held each year on the 25th of April to commemorate the brave Australian and New Zealand servicemen (ANZACs) who died during many campaigns stretching back to 1915 and World War I. More info can be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anzac_Day
TBB have put together a tour offering two options of differing durations – a 7 day trip from our base in Chiang Mai, terminating in Kanchanaburi, site of the ANZAC memorial services, and a 10 day trip initially covering the same route but extending back to Chiang Mai (a round trip).
Apart from offering the usual TBB high quality routes and hotels, highlights include: The Dawn Service, The Bridge Over the River Kwai, HellFire Pass and The 3 Pagodas Pass (10 day tour only).
