nice sized glass houses, but the resort was very new and not finished, nothing was available when we asked for it, its a motel on a main road its not a resort. Too far away from anything.

It is impossible to imagine how hard it must have been for the men forced to work on the railway during the war, in the heat and in the jungle. ...

The bridge itself never actually crossed the Kwae river, the railway followed the ...
