Bangkok - The Land Of Smiles, Day 2

Get ready at 7am in the morning and walk through the quiet street with the fresh air, it's so wonderful.. Yes, we are ready for 1 day tour! Bought the package from one of the local tour outside Lamphu Guesthouse with 530baht/pax, including lunch.

We have heading to Kanchanaburi War Cemetery after 7.30am while picked up all the tourist at different guest house. It took approximately 2 hours to reached the destination from Lamphu area.

Kanchanaburi War Cemetery known as Don-Rak War Cemetery. It is located opposite Kanchanaburi's Railway Station on Saengchootoe Road. It contains the remains of 6,982 Australian, Dutch and British war prisoners who lost their lives during the construction of the Death Railway.

Sometimes you can even found their relatives has been here for visiting too.

We have stayed around 20 minutes before heading towards War Museum.

The outside view of War Museum, if you would like to get into museum and explore the stories about World War II, there is an admission fees needed. Else, you may just hang around outside and take some pictures. We didn't pay for a visit at museum, thus some pictures took at outside will do.

This is the train while Japanese used for the transportation to send all the necessary stuff to Indian - Burma.

The Bridge on the River Kwai, another story of World War II.

The black iron bridge was brought from Java by the Japanese supervision by Allied prisoner-of-war labour as part of the Death Raiway linking Thailand with Burma. Still in use today, the bridge was the target of frequent Allied bombing raids during World War II and was rebuild after war ended.

A walk down memory lane..

Next station: Thakilen raiway station..

We have ready to experienced the journey of Death Railway.

Please bear in mind, the local tour package does not including the train ticket, hence you will need to pay extra money to experience the journey. Normal ticket: 100baht, VIP ticket: 150baht.

We bought VIP ticket at 150baht which including Soft drink, snack and certificate of death railway.
