One would think that an attraction called the Death Railway Train Ride will turn off a lot of people. However, this is not the case. After all, the train ride is a tourist attraction in itself.
What is the Death Railway Train Ride? Basically, remainder of railway what the Japanese war machines was building during World War II this railroad was under construction by Asian laborers and prisoners of wars in a bid to obtain a supply line between Thailand and Burma. An amazing amount for construction took place in a short time, but the line never made it across the border. Today only sections of the railway remain, some areas where flooded to make way for a damn project and much has been lost back into the jungles.
It is possible to go on a ride along these rail tracks, sheer cuttings and wooden bridges as it winds its way along the river crossing over the famous Bridge on the River Kwai and back in to Kanchanaburi town and. You’ll get great views as the train slows when passing by the river and the cliffs, just make sure not to place your head to far outside the window as the train passes by closely alongside cliffs and branches.
