Kanchanaburi

located 128 kilometers (80 miles) west of Bangkok. It is Thailand's third largest province with an area of 19,486 square kilometers. The provincial area is mountaineous and has the west border next to Myanmar.

JEATH War Museum

The name JEATH is derived from countries engaged in the WWII death railway construction from 1942 to 1945: Japan, England, America, Australia, Thailand and Holland. And as the name suggests, this small museum displays photographs and illustrations narrating the living condition of prisoners of war (POWs) during that cruel time, some of which were donated by former POWs who survived. The museum building itself was also turned from the detention hut, used during that period.

The Death Railway

The Death Railway was built during the 2nd World War by the labor of the war prisoner and the Asian labor forced by the Japanese troop. During that time, Thailand was the alliance of Japan and also gave a big support to the Japanese army. The Death Railway was a route to pass Myanmar and to invade India. Japan was aware that by using the sea troop to fight with England, their armies would be attacked by the alliances. From this reason, they decided to build this railway. The railway was named after the event in the history. There is a saying that “the numbers of the railway, is equal to the numbers of the death labor used to build this railway”

Bridge over River Kwai

This steel bridge is one of important historical landmarks and memorials in Thailand. It is almost a symbol of the province and is a recommended place in Kanchanaburi travel guide. The history of the bridge is well known, as it was part of the railway lines in World War II and had seen its share of conflict and bloodshed. After World War II, the damaged bridge was renovated by the Thai government in 1946. The Bridge of the River Kwai Memorial Week is held during late November to early December every year, where there is an exhibition about World War II and the history and archaeology of the bridge. Folk performances, local goods markets, and other entertainment are also scheduled at the event.

Kanchanaburi War Cemetery

The trip was well-organised, with a nice guide giving us a detailed explanation of the area. However, the only thing that spoiled the trip was that the van was too old. I did feel a bit dizzy after getting off the van.

Driver and tour guide were really nice. Its just that the tour consists mostly of "travel time" from one place to another instead of an actual tour.. maybe add more places to go in the tour? Lunch was great though!

I would like to highlight a few things to improve the tour. 1). There were no details in the email to tell me what to expect for the tour. What clothes to bring as there was a waterfall at the end. So sad. I couldn’t swim there.
