Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai

Bridge on the River Kwai & the Death Railway

One of the most popular historical attractions you will find in the city Kanchanaburi; the famous Bridge on the River Kwai. This memorial site became a tourist attraction, where history and entertainment go together.

The railway bridge is part of the infamous Death Railway (Burma Death Railway) which was constructed during World War II and caused the deaths of many forced labourers and prisoner of war. In addition to the bridge itself, which is still in use, you can also visit several museums.

But next to a heavy past, the River Kwai offers entertainment also. Here you can find hotels that float on the water, you can take jungle tours and boat trips, visit the famous Erawan waterfall and you can attend cultural shows from local tribes. Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai are a must for anyone wishing to combine a bit of history with an incomparable location on the river.
