Also known as the Don-Rak War Cemetery, the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery commemorates victims of the building of the Burma Railway during World War II.

Located on Saeng Chuto Road, the main road of the city of Kanchanaburi, the cemetery is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and contains the graves of Australian, British and Dutch POWs who were forced into labor by the Japanese, who controlled the area at the time of the Burma Railway construction.

A nearby privately funded museum, the Thailand-Burma Railway Museum, contains interactive displays describing the history of the railway and the prisoners who died building it.

River Kwai in Brief

River Kwai in Brief

One of Thailand’s largest provinces is also one of the region’s most talked-about ones. A good two and a half hour’s drive from Bangkok and snuggled against the eastern borders of neighbouring Myanmar, Kanchanaburi automatically instils images of vast, untouched forest and jungle with the two River Kwai rivers meandering through its landscape. Yet what drives the interest is of course its past; seen as an important gateway between former Burma and further south, the Bridge over the River Kwai, the DEATH Railway and the numerous landmarks and monuments depicting a black page in Thailand’s history are essentials to take in when visiting the country. A compact yet complete overview of the true story behind the River Kwai.
