    The River Kwai Bridge | Kanchanaburi

    In 1943 Japan built a bridge over the River Kwai in Kanchanaburi to support their troops fighting in India. The bridge was part of a 415 km long track and it was mainly built by Australian, Dutch and British prisoners of war. The trail was called 'Death Railway' and connected Thailand with Burma for 17 months. In total 12,624 prisoners of war did not survive the construction. Many special points of interest can be found in the area, like the bridge itself (which was rebuilt after the war), the Hellfire Pass and a couple of museums. Reservations for this trip cannot be made online (yet), but you can call SRT 1690 or +6634511285 for further information. The special weekend tourist train 909 | 910 can be booked only at least 7 days in advance.
