Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum and Walking Trail, Sai Yok

See an important reminder of World War II at Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum and Walking Trail, commemorating part of the route of the Burma Railway. Known also as the "Death Railway," the line was constructed by POWs held by Japanese forces, along with Asian slave-laborers. This particular section was cut through solid rock by Allied prisoners and slaves working under treacherous conditions, with little rest or food. Now a museum, the site allows you to walk through the valley and learn about this tragic period in human history, with a range of exhibits and touching memorials to those that suffered here.

  • This was the second time to the pass. This time visited for ANZAC Day, Last time I only got as far as the pass itself but said to myself I will be back to do the rest of it. So far it goes 2.5 Km or 5...  more »
  • As slaves during wartime prisoners of war built the line it ferrea. Cut into the mountain in the middle of the jungle Thai can be a section of that route. Also visit a museum with audio-guide, with pictures of as this hell step was made, as well as tools of the time. You can see the hardness of the forced labor to those who were forced. The Museum can be visited by any, but the area of routes must be down and up stairs.
