20 Best Kanchanaburi Attractions Every Tourist Must See

A mere 140 km drive from Bangkok, Kanchanaburi is further inland than the capital city. The city has a dark past, and tourists flock to view the well-known sites of the ‘Death Railway’. One of these is the Bridge over the River Kwai. The photogenic Than Kra Sae Bridge is another. The biggest is the Hellfire Pass cutting through a hill made by the prisoners of war. A museum that duplicates the POW Camp and conditions is the Jeath War Museum.

Despite its history, the railway passes through some of the most scenic landscapes in the area. Today only 77 km of the Death Railway is still open, and trains run twice a day on weekends. Also worthwhile is a tour to the old Khymer ruins at Prasat Muang Singh.
