Kanchanaburi trip – A truly moving experience

I won’t waffle on too much in this post, but let the pictures do the talking.

Kanchanaburi is around a 3 hour drive west of Bangkok, probably slightly longer by train. It is most famous as being the home of the Bridge over the River Kwai. This was of course made famous by the film of the same name. There are many Allied cemeteries dotted around the town and outside, also some Chinese cemeteries.

You can still ride on a train over the bridge and along a part of the old “Death Railway”, so called because so many people died constructing it. The area is also outstandingly beautiful and a gateway to the Sai Yok national park.
