If you like history and want to visit just to pay the tribute to the fallen soldiers, then go. However, there is not much to do around the area or at the bridge.. we were only there for about 5min.
Another piece of advise,
DO NOT USE THAILAND TOURS CENTER to visit River Kwai or the cemetery. Tigertemplethailand.com is the worst tour company and they will definitely rip you off. The guides are nice, but useless as our guide literally told us 2 sentences and then left us to our own devices at every single location.
The owner of the tour company is an arrogant, miserable, man who is racists towards Americans and is not above physically threatening its customers and intimidating them by promising to get the driver to abandon you 3 hours outside of Bangkok.
