Tham Krasae Railway Bridge, Kanchanaburi

Overview

Tham Krasae Bridge, located 55km from Kanchanaburi, is a must-see destination for those interested in history and the impact of war. The bridge, built in just 17 days during 1943, is a part of the Death Railway and serves as a reminder of the horrific working conditions and loss of life during its construction. Visitors can take a train ride along the railway and stop at Tham Krasae to photograph the trestle bridge and view the nearby Krasae Cave, which served as a campground and field hospital for Japanese soldiers during the war.

Krasae Cave offers a unique perspective on the railway and the surrounding landscape, and visitors can take in the beautiful view of the Khwae Noi River while also paying respects to the prisoners of war who lost their lives building the railway. The cave is also home to a sacred Buddha image.

The Death Railway, stretching over 415km, is a sobering reminder of the brutality of war and the sacrifices made by so many. Tham Krasae Bridge and Krasae Cave offer a glimpse into this dark chapter in history and serve as a reminder to never forget the sacrifices made during World War II.
