A Night In Kanchanaburi, Thailand – 2019

In 2019, I visited Kanchanaburi again on my way to Mae Sot. We stayed a night to explore some of the places to take some photos. Some information on the Bridge.

This steel bridge is one of Thailand’s most notable historical structures and memorials. It is nearly a symbol of the province and is listed in the Kanchanaburi travel guide as a must-see. The bridge’s history is well-known, since it was part of the railway lines during World War II and had experienced its fair share of murder and strife. The Thai government restored the damaged bridge in 1946 after World War II. Every year, from late November to early December, the Bridge of the River Kwai Memorial Week takes place, including an exhibition about World War II as well as the history and archaeology of the bridge. At the event, there will be folk performances, local goods markets, and other entertainment.
