2nd Stop: River Kwai Bridge



Kanchanaburi, in Myanmar border, is home to the famous Bridge River Kwai. During WW II, Japan constructed the meter-gauge railway line from Ban Pong, Thailand to Thanbyuzayat, Burma. The line passing through the scenic Three Pagodas Pass runs for 250 miles. This is now known as the Death Railway.

The railway line was meant to transport cargo daily to India, to back up their planned attack on India. The construction was done using POWs and Asian slave laborers in unfavorable conditions. The work started in October 1942 was completed in a year. Due to the difficult terrain, thousands of laborers lost their lives. It is believed that one life was lost for each sleeper laid in the track.

3rd Stop: Giant Rain Tree (Chamchuri)



Hidden inside the Royal Thai Army’s Division of Veterinary and Agriculture is this giant rain tree you might not believe your eyes. A 20-meter-tall single rain tree, aged older than 100 year, features a shady canopy that is measured 51.75 meters in diameter, which means it crowns over an area of 2,416 square meters.

See you there!
