Feel free to view my previous write up on Kanchanaburi Town.
And for trip summary, please view HERE
The greatest attractions in Kanchanaburi are the historical bridge over the River Kwai and the death railway. The railways connects Thailand and Burma; built by the empire of Japan during the World War 2. Forced labour – Asian labours and allied prisoner of war (POWs) were used in its construction. Almost half of the prisoners worked in this project died from disease, maltreatment and accident.
It is even filmed as The Bridge on the River Kwai where it borrows the construction of the Burma Railway in 1942-43 for its historical settings.
Here, I am going to share up some photos I have taken during my visit to the River Kwai. 🙂
Hola!!! Time to continue with my Thailand holiday back in February.
You can view here for the Summary of the trip and here for the eco vintage village in Plearnwan, Hua Hin.
Kanchanaburi is a little town located about 130 kilometers west of Bangkok. It takes about 3 hours ride to get there (from Bangkok). If you love some adventurous journey, you may opt to travel by train which takes up to 5 hours from Bangkok
I stayed in this hotel in Amphoes Muang (Kanchanaburi city) – River Kwai Hotel.
It is located at the prime location where one easily accesses to the famous River Kwai Bridge and other attractions.
This is a summary of my trip during the short holiday. Detailed posts will be up soon 🙂
