So my Journey in 2013 took me to Thailand, and Kanchanburi, one of the stops for the Death Valley railway. In this slideshow you will see;
Wampo Viaduct (Wang Po) and Buddha Cave
Tham Kra Sae Sation
Bridge over the River Kwai
Just a point to note the river Kwai wasn’t/isn’t the river Kwai, its the river Mae Khlung. Because of the book that was written, people really wanted to see the Bridge over the river Kwai, so i 1960 it was renamed the Kwae Yai.
I know the music to this slideshow is a little upbeat, and to be fair I didn’t want something mournful (not that I am in any way irreverent) but I think i wanted to give a feel of a better place now, after all it does attract some 5 million tourists every year. Kanchan is a thriving and busy town.
I hope you enjoy having a look around
