KANCHANABURI: The Bridge over River Kwai
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. 🙂
You could just walk along the railway. Of course, you have to be really careful because at some times of the day, there are train passing through.
On one end, there are folks selling souvenirs such as Jade, and tee shirt and goodies.
Grab a piece of souvenirs for remembrance
River Kwai Park – a place selling goods and souvenirs
