ABOUT

Located a 12 hour minibus from Dawei, Kanchanaburi is a province in the West of Thailand.

A popular destination for tourists, Kanchanaburi is famously known for its major attractions including several waterfalls, the River Kwai and its history with the Death Railway build during WW2 by prisoners of war.

What to do

Erawan National Park

Seven-tiered, emerald green and magnificent, these waterfalls are not the stuff of fairy tales, but can be found in the Erawan National Park (one of the most famous in all of Thailand), just a short jaunt from Kanchanaburi town. Forest covers 81% of the park, while the remainder is blanketed in evergreens, making the whole area a real haven for nature lovers. What’s more, visitors are invited to swim in several of the plunge pools in the area.

Death Railway

Kanchanaburi attracts huge crowds of tourists interested in learning about the dark histories of Thailand during World War II. The Thai-Burma Railway (also known as the Death railway) was constructed for the Japanese to cross the border with Burma to the north-west. Carriages still go on the tracks and travellers riding the train are taken through vistas of sugar cane, rice terrace and farmland while paying respect to the victims who died during its construction

 

The Hellfire Pass

A 500-meter-long portion of rock that 1,000 prisoners of war dug out (by hand) to pave the way for the Death Railway. Seven hundred of those men died during the 12-week digging period. Today, it's possible to walk the old railway track into the jungle (which takes about four to five hours), and visit a memorial museum honoring those who died.

Established by the Australian government to honor Allied POWS, the museum tells the poignant stories of these men through artifacts, tools, photos, and multimedia displays.
