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.
