Kanchanaburi is a city located at the confluence of the rivers Kwai Noi and Kwai Yai and is home to the infamous Bridge over the River Kwai. During WW II, Japan constructed the railway line from Ban Pong, Thailand to Thanbyuzayat, Burma known as the Death Railway. The construction was done using POWs and Asian slave labourers in very unfavourable conditions. We walked 3km up to the bridge and back to the War Cemetery, where around 7,000 POWs, who sacrificed their lives in the railway construction, are buried. Another 2,000 are laid to rest at the Chungkai Cemetery a few kilometers out of town.
