River Kwai Railway

This will be the main thing to see at Kanchanaburi in terms of history.

The Bridge over The River Kwai:

This place is located only 3 hours away from Bangkok and there is this famous bridge which is an icon of the World War II.

There is a film called “The Bridge on The River Kwai” which is very old and famous and which talks about the history of this place. It will be nice to stop and check for information about the history.

The Death Railway:

Then, it will be good to walk around the “Death Railway” and take the train until the Nam Tok station which is the last one.

It takes approximately 2 hours (60 kilometers) to reach this station from Kanchanaburi but it is worth it.

Indeed when I will arrive to Nam Tok, I will be able to go to the Sai Yok Noi waterfalls which are only 2 kilometers away.
