A few short hours west of Bangkok and stretching lazily along the River Kwai lies the beautiful little town of Kanchanaburi.
Beautiful but with a terrible past.
In 1942 prisoners of war and forced Asian laborers at work on the Thai-Burma railway built the famed “Bridge over the River Kwai”.
The Bridge was part of the railway system known as the death railway, it took just 20 months to build, stretched 415 kilometers from Bangkok to Burma and killed 110,000 people.
