    Stay here. There is two places with the same Name. Make sure you stay at this one which is close to the Bridge. Don't fook up.

    You can stay in one of the rooms floating on the river for 500 Baht or something like that. If they're full the rooms at the back are good. Quiet spot no groups of plebs. Enjoy.

    Bamboo House is quite nice. Very close to the bridge too.

    Never stayed in one of their places on the river though.

    I was disappointed to learn that the original bridge was bombed by the RAF at the end of the war. What the Thais class as the Bridge over the River Kwai is just a random railway bridge in everyday use.
