Kanchanaburi. THE DEATH RAILWAY

In this town, you can relive one of the most dramatic episodes in World War II to occur away from the main war fronts. The construction of a railway line by the Japanese that was to cross Thailand to Myanmar, built using local labour and prisoners of war, was the cause of enormous human tragedy.
One stretch of the railway has been restored and apart from recalling the event, it also gives you a chance to enjoy breathtaking views of splendid natural landscape.
