Description
Kanchanaburi is a province near the Myanmar border and is home to the famous Bridge Over the River Kwai. During WW II, Japan constructed the railway line from Ban Pong, Thailand to Thanbyuzayat, Burma. The rail-way line passes through the scenic Three Pagodas Pass and runs for 250 miles. This is now known as the Death Railway. That name was given because there are two well-kept cemeteries, which contain the graves of an estimated 9,000 allied soldiers who lost their lives while building the bridge and constructing the notorious “Death Railway” which the Japanese had hoped to stretch all the way to the Burmese border. The construction was done using POWs and Asian slave laborers in unfavorable conditions. The work started in October 1942 was completed in a year. Due to the difficult terrain, thousands of laborers lost their lives. It is believed that one life was lost for each sleeper laid in the track. 
 
The Bridge Of River Kwai became famous all over the world, when it was featured in movies and books. The cliff-hugging tracks and the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains and valleys are well captured in the David Lean movie. Bridge River Kwai is a tourist destination now. The track is developed into a walkway with side platforms. This allows crossing the railway bridge on foot. These platforms are useful as viewpoints and for avoiding trains. A daily train still runs along the historical route from Kanchanaburi to Nam Tok Railway Station daily.

Also in Kanchanaburi is the Erawan National Park which was designated in June 1975 as Thailand's 12th national park. It covers an area of 550 km of high mountains and valleys. The eastern mountains rise to nearly 1,000 meters with shear limestone cliffs. These mountains protect the area from the eastern monsoon resulting in a low average rainfall. In summer the weather is sweltering, but it is cool between November and February. The main feature of the park is the stunning 7 tired Erawan Waterfall. It is the Park’s main attraction with its emerald green water and the beautiful falls. Also worth to seeing is the Phra That Cave, with its uniquely strange shaped stalactites and stalagmites.

여기가 유명한 곳인줄도 모르고 그냥 사진만 보고 갔는데 완전 좋았어요. 제가 사진찍는걸 좋아해서 이런 유니크한 분위기가 너무 좋았어요. 특히 시간도 여유로워서 좋았고 기사분도 너무 친절했어요. 방콕에 몇일동안 계속 있다가 이런 조요한데 오니까 마음이 편한하고~ 태국오면 꼭 와봐야 할곳이에요! 이번 여행갔다와서 제일 좋았던 곳 같습니다

가장 적합한 택시투어였습니다 :)

에라완 깐나차부리 지역을 둘러보는데 가장 저렴하고 괜찮은 투어였습니다. 무엇보다도 택시기사님이 저희 투어 중간중간 촬영하시길래 뭘까? 의아했는데 투어마지막에 동영상을 선물로 주시더라고요. 너무 감동받았습니다. 더운 날 아버지처럼 항상 맞아주시고 기다려주셨어요 ^^ 택시 투어 자체는 매우 좋았습니다 다만 코끼리와 대나무 리프팅 하는 장소가 매우 열악했고 코끼리도 불쌍하고 가슴이 아팠던 것 같습니다. 에라완 국립공원은 정말 좋았습니다 ❤️ 택시투어라 놀 시간도 넉넉했습니다 ^^ 아 택시기사님 성함은 Jumreon이셨는데 행복하셨으면 해요~

꼭 들리세요

기대를 전혀 안하고 갔어요. 가족여행이라 아버지가 무슨 영화?에 나온 역사적인 장소라며 가보자고 하셔서 다들 떨떠름하게 갔어요. 국립공원인가 거기도 산이라서 등산할 것 같아서 기대도 없었구요. 근데 정말.......너무나 아름다웠어요. 그 폭포가 왜 그런 색깔인지는 모르겠는데 마치 판타지 영화 속에 들어온 것 처럼 신비로운 곳이었어요.
