Ship Overview

For this special tour Grasshopper Adventures is partnering up with Thailand’s first inland cruise ship, the RV River Kwai. The vessel was newly built as a colonial style river cruiser based on designs used by the original Irrawaddy Flotilla which was founded in Burma in 1865 and by the 1920s was the largest privately owned fleet of ships in the world.
 
With just ten beautifully teak enhanced cabins, this cozy, small and intimate vessel is perfect to cruise on the scenic and historic River Kwai.
The RV River Kwai is under private charter to Grasshopper Adventures with our own Grasshopper tour director.
