The Bridge Over the River Kwai (City)

March 27, 2010 

When people come to Thailand, one of the first thing they wish  to visit is The Bridge over  the River Kwai.

In 1942,  Kanchanaburi was under Japanese control. It was here that Allied POWs (Prisoners Of War),  when building the infamous Thailand-Burma Railway,  constructed an important bridge over the River Kwai.  This  event was  immortalised in the world  famous  film ” The Bridge over the River Kwai” . It is estimated that half of the  prisoners working on the project died from beatings, starvation,  disease, maltreatment, jungle fever, accidents and exhaustion.
