I visited there on June 19 with family. It was great visit there for my daughter's historical knowledge. She want to know about World War II ,Japanese army,British alliance army and Myanmar(Burmese) forced labour civilians as well.

The little station seems miles from anywhere and is well-maintained and characterful. Train journey short but good views of the bridge and a good photo-opportunity.

... if you came to Kanchanaburi for the WW II history or if you're at least slightly interested in history. Coming from Europe, the WW II history is mostly told from a "Western" perspective, so for me this was one of the best museums I...More
