River Kwai 3 days

River Kwai 3 days / 2 nights

The World's most famous bridge was built during the Second World War by the prisoners.
This is a monument to all that gave their lives, and those surviving it.

It was said it was impossible to build a railway link between Thailand and Burma. The Japanese, during the second world war did it anyhow, by using thousands of war prisoners as forced labor in unimaginably bad conditions, just to be demolished by allied bombing short after.

The tour takes you to the well-known attraction of Kanchanaburi, the Bridge on the River Kwai is part of the infamous Death Railway, spanning over Kwai Yai River, built by the prisoners of the World War II under the supervision of Japanese Imperialism Army.

The 415-kilometer railway was built to connect Thailand and Myanmar to secure supplies to the Japanese army during their Greater East-Asian War. It is called the Death Railway as it involved the death of too many people during the construction period, between September 16, 1942 and on 25 December 1943 when it completed. It is estimated that more than 16,000 war prisoners (POWs) from England, Australia, Holland and America, together with some 90,000 labors from Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia and Indonesia, died during the construction.
