The Bridge over the River Kwai. , (30 images)|
The bridge over the river Kwai is famous and well known to everyone in Europe, Australia and USA. But if you ask someone in Thailand, many does not know about the tradgedy during the second world war at all. Many prisoners of war died here during the attempt of the Japaneese to keep a supply route by train over the river Kwai to Myanmar. Here some pictures I took during a visit. I have also included some pictures from the museum exhibition.
