Historical Death Railway Tour in Kanchanaburi
Step out of the busy streets of Bangkok and spend a day visiting the historical and picturesque town of Kanchanaburi.
Kanchanaburi is famous for the “Death Railway” and the eminent River Kwai Bridge built during the Second World War and is just 2 and a half hours from Bangkok. Due to the ambitions of the imperial Japanese army, the “Death Railway” linking Thailand with Burma was constructed during the war, costing the lives of thousands of prisoners of war. This horrendous historical site is oddly juxtaposed with a serene natural landscape.
Learn more about the harsh realities faced here with a visit to the JEATH War Museum. Afterward, get a chance to ride on the famous Burma Railway, also known as the “Death Railway”. Take a walk along the Bridge over the River Kwai, before visiting the Tham Krasea Buddha Cave, where a Buddha statue is surrounded by beautiful nature.
