The Hintok River Camp is based close to the notorious Hellfire Pass, where POWs carved a railway track through rock and jungle during World War II. This makes it an ideal base for those hoping to learn more about the tragic history of the area, as well as to admire the pretty countryside.
The camp itself is very comfortable, with spacious tents that have air-conditioning. Covered bathrooms are attached to the back of the tents. The tents face inwards towards the center of the camp, however there is a nice reception area which looks out over the river, with views at their most beautiful at dusk.
Steep steps lead down to the river, and although it is not possible to swim in the Kwai from this point, there is a separate natural pool which guests can enjoy. There is also a jetty with some deckchairs for those who like to relax by the running water, and boats can launch from here for adventures on the river.
Dinner is a buffet either in the main restaurant or spread out on tables under the stars.
