Hintok River Camp at Hellfire Pass is set along the Kwai River in Kanchanaburi province, offering a unique experience close to nature yet in comfort.

Located about 80 kilometers north of Kanchanaburi and about three kilometers from the Hellfire Pass Memorial, the camp consists of 20 safari-style tents, each built on a wooden platform and furnished with comfortable twin or king-size beds, minibar, air-conditioner as well as standing fan and mosquito nets. Each tent has an adjacent open-air bathroom with hot and cold shower, toilet and wash-basin.

Meals are served at the open-air restaurant area which has lovely views over the river. They don't have a spa yet, but they offer traditional Thai massage and foot massage. There is also a small exhibition hall about the history of the area.
