Tham Kra Sae Bridge, Kanchanaburi

(4.3/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
Learn about the tragic World War II history of Tham Kra Sae Bridge. The bridge makes up a small part of the 415 km (228 mi) Burma Railway or "Death Railway," built with the forced labor of Allied prisoners of war in extreme conditions. Many of these POWs died during the construction, and the bridge serves as a testament to the horrors of those times, with trains still operating on the tracks. In addition to the bridge itself, there is a small Buddhist shrine inside a picturesque cave near the bridge. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Tham Kra Sae Bridge and many more Kanchanaburi attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Kanchanaburi travel itinerary maker.

  • Thramkrasae is a stop of the "train of death '." Easily accessible, waiting to walk over the railroad tracks overlooking the River Kwai. A cave is home to a small temple and a picturesque market allows some shopping.

  • In contrast to the "River Kwai bridge" (bridge over the Khwae) on the northern outskirts of the city of Kanchanaburi, 1945 by Allied bombers destroyed and later was rebuilt, see a wooden structure in the course of the death railway, which in the original is preserved and carries the railway line between rock and River near the Metro station "Thamkrasae". If you are traveling by car, you can find also a site (large area) on the opposite bank of the River with the help of your navigation system from where you a train crossing watch/photograph/film can optimally (see my photos). For this the navigation systems that you can get along with the car, is however not sufficient! Get the program Southeast Asia of a well known Dutch party for little money, and are on the safe side! Visit not just for interesting railway fans!

  • Are the attractions that should be strongly? If it comes to Kanchanaburi. Rich in history War world on fire opposite the piers and rock climbing are a resort view. The river and beautiful mountains. Strongly recommended that it should be.
