About River Kwai Bridge

The River Kwai Bridge is located in Kanchanaburi in northwestern Bangkok on the border with Myanmar. The bridge reflects a period of history during the Second World War when the Japanese troops occupied the Thai territory and forced the Allied prisoners to build railways connecting Myanmar and Siam. Countless lives were sacrificed to build the rails, so it is also known as the "death railway." Visitors can stand on this historical bridge at sunset watching the quiet, flowing Kwai River below.
