River Kwai Bridge Week
December 6 - 15, 2013
Venue: Mueang District, Kanchanaburi Province
This event takes you going back in time to World War II through the River Kwai Bridge built by Allied prisoners-of-war. This bridge was the part of the ‘Death Railway’ that spanned the River Kwai connecting Thailand and Myanmar, costing thousands of lives of prisoners and local laborers supervised by Japanese troops. This event features a remembrance ceremony held at the Allied War Cemetery, light and sound presentations which the audience see a more exciting battle scene with simulated effects such as life-like explosions, flying bomber planes, and trains running through fire during a stunning scene when the bridge is first revealed. Moreover, there are cultural performances, historical displays and exhibitions, and selling of five-star OTOP products, local products and food.
