We enjoyed our time on River Kwai and especially the train ride was very nice. Can't see much of the old wooden bridge.

I was amazed at just how busy this spot was. I didn't realise just how well known this place was. However, I'm sure the films on the subject are the reason. A huge thunderstorm came over while we were visiting, that cleared the tourists off...More

Visited the Death railway museum this morning, Hellfire Pass at lunchtime, took the train along the Thai-Burma railway and alighted at the bridge. It’s a bridge, but it’s about the story it holds so having that info first makes it much more than a walk...More
