The famous “Bridge over the River Kwai” is located in Kanchanaburi town, not far from the city centre. This bridge was first built as a part of the railway between Thailand and Burma in 1942, during WW2. Using the forced labour of their Allied POWs, the Japanese planned to build a railway across East Asia to British India. 16,000 Allied POWs (of 65,000), and 100,000 local people died of starvation, exhaustion, diseases, and malaria fever during this time.
