Kanchanaburi & The River Kwai, Thailand
Kanchanaburi is home to the Bridge over the River Kwai and serves as a poignant reminder of the atrocities suffered here during World War II.
Bridge over the River Kwai
The museum highlights the plight of the POWs and Asian labourers tortured by the Japanese, whilst the beautifully maintained WWII cemetary provides a quiet sanctuary for reflection. Take time to visit the bridge itself as well as the jungle cutting disturbingly known as Hell Fire Pass.
The most luxurious ways to reach the Bridge over the River Kwai are along the Death Railway, in a specially-restored train, or by river on a colonial-style cruise boat.
Erawan National Park
Not far from the provincial town of Kanchanaburi is Erawan National Park, which is renowned for its elephant and colourful birdlife - of which there are more than 300 resident species.
