River Kwai

DAY 1 - River Kwai

Meet your guide at your hotel, and then drive to Kanchanburi town, around 3 hours away from Bangkok.  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.   Visit a war museum & war cemetery before taking a ride on the notorious Death Railway.  Return to Bangkok and your hotel.
