History tourism is something almost everyone experienced, some in a holiday with a complete purpose of visiting heritage sights and learn about their history. While for others it might be a day excursion in-between other activities. But what is it exactly, when would you define it as History Tourism and what makes people so interested in it?

Our hotel, River Kwai RESOTEL, member of the SERENATA Hotels & Resort Group is located in the province of Kanchanaburi in Thailand. The resort is surrounded by historical sites such as the Hellfire Pass and the Bridge over the River Kwai. This combined with the beauty of the surroundings makes it a perfect heritage, culture and nature destination.

However, Thailand is not the only country with many historical sights which attracts tourism. Think of the pyramids in Egypt, the Inca Citadel Machu Picchu in Peru and the memorials of the Second World War in Berlin. All these are in different moments in history on different locations and are still important places and activities that are known in the present day.

History is fascinating for many of us at it shows something about our ancestors as well as how we as a society got to where we are now. Many of the history destinations are also well known because of books and movies such as the movie ‘The Bridge on the River Kwai’.
