PERSONALISED PILGRIMAGES TAILORED TO INDIVIDUAL NEEDS

With extensive knowledge of the Thailand-Burma railway TBRC is proud to offer a selection of 'tours' related to the location and construction of the Railway, prison camp sites etc. These 'tours' are not scheduled and conducted to a timetable but rather personally planned and tailored to suit individual needs. They are ideal for those with a family connection to the ex- PoW railway workers or others seeking a deep personal understanding of what it took to construct 415 klms of railway, almost totally by hand, under incredibily difficult conditions over 60 years ago.

We are not a "tour company" for normal tourist activities such as sight-seeing, elephant trekking and the like, but we specialise in railway history, personal pilgrimages and behind-the-scenes insights into this historic wartime event.

Please click any of the tours listed below to see more detailed information on examples of what we offer.

ALL PROGRAMS ARE INDICATIVE ONLY AND CAN BE TAILORED TO SUIT PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES, INTEREST AND FAMILY HISTORY
