2020 Quiet Lion Tour - accommodation
The Burma Thailand Railway Memorial Association (Inc) is calling for application for passengers to join the Quiet Lion Tour for 2020. The 2020 tour is a 12-day, 11-night all-inclusive guided tour to Thailand to visit Hell Fire Pass dawn service and Kanchanaburi Cemetery wreath laying ceremony on ANZAC Day.
The tour also includes, air flights, transfers, meals, accommodation, a commentary on the experiences of the POWs on the railway during WWII and visits to the sites of many of the POW camps. Next year will see some improvements to the accommodation.
The tour has moved to the Royal River Hotel for the first two nights of the tour and then the Centre Point Central Hotel. Both hotels are better appointed; the rooms at the Royal River Hotel have river views and have improved the comfort of our passengers. The positioning of the hotels also improves the access for the tour bus to the airport and the day tour for its passengers.
The tour will spend a day in Bangkok and surrounding areas experiencing the Thai culture and then travel inland to areas where the railway was built. The experienced guides will give a running commentary on the struggle of the POWs during the railway construction. The historic part of the culminates in the Heritage work along part of the original railway and ending at the Hell Fire Pass Museum. The detailed itinerary, application form and terms and conditions of the tour are on the BTRMA’s website.
