Tham Kra Sae Bridge, Kanchanaburi
(4.3/5 based on 180 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.

  • Beautiful surroundings and views on railway lines stuck to the top. In the area of lush vegetation. Silhouette on the Buddha cave line. Close to a few restaurants. and mass markets as everywhere. Short stop in the journey

  • Tham Kra Sae Bridge was extremely beautiful, just looking at the wooden structure and remembering those who built it, seeing the train go over the wooden structure is remarkable. 
  • This impressive wooden bridge is the best place to train on the death railway. Because the track runs in a turn, you also have from the train.
