4.3/5 based on 170+ 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.

  • As another point of view, that should be plenty of history here in the caves there are Buddhas can pay homage. There is no railway train passes through the range can go for a walk, take pictures. It has a lot of sales.

  • It is one of the most scenic spots of the death railway, as the wooden bridge grows beside a bend in the river kwai. You can get off the train at the station to take pictures and visit the place. Near the station there is also a cave inside which has been converted into a temple. This is one of the most beautiful landscapes of the railway so not to Miss! Recommended!
