Nestling sensuous war relics to dazzling Buddhist temples, Kanchanaburi is Thailand’s historical focal point.

visit Kanchanaburi

Kanchanaburi may be the sole reminder of Thailand’s poignant war history beyond its exotic glimmer. This western launchpad is most famous for the Death Railway, a railway built during World War II by the war prisoners. The land of Kanchanaburi hosts several memorials and cemeteries. They pay tribute to the ones who died building the bridge and countless other war victims. Although the picturesque river views have the looks of an easy-going city, Kanchanaburi’s solemn story is what makes it worthy of visiting.

As you sail on River Kwai, Deah Railway Bridge will appear amidst the lush greenery with its rather uninviting appearance. Its grim story reflects on the iron structure, making the entire experience all the more realistic. Further along the famous Death Railway, the Hellfire Pass is another dramatic sight. The pass is a section of the railway that cuts through the violent jungle. There, you will have a chance to witness the harsh conditions under which the railway workers had to survive. The memorial tour in Kanchanaburi continues in the War Cemetery and War Museum. The number of graves and the remnants of war displayed in the museum will mark your trip to Kanchanaburi with historical weight.

If you feel like a change in the mood is necessary, don’t worry. There is no shortage of Buddhist temples and cultural hotspots in the town. Pay a visit to Wat Tham Seua and the cave temples peppering the Kanchanaburi countryside.
