One wonders how many of the Millennials have ever heard of Hellfire Pass? A visit here should make everyone feel lucky to be alive. Difficult to find words to accurately describe how awful this place once was.

It was an emotional trip into history. The museum is beautiful and tells the story in such a way that makes you truly feel what the prisoners felt as they constructed the railway. I was amazed and reduced to tears.

Hellfire Pass has a short or long walk. The short walk is about 500m.one way, which is easy. Beyond that I understand it's a few hours. I went up to the memorial plague. The audio can be borrowed doc. However, a photograph document must be...More
