The River Kwai
Floating hotel rooms on one side and the Burma - Thailand Railway on the other as the Kwai rolls down towards Kanchanaburi.
The Railway was also known as the Death Railway as it was constructed by forced labour under the control of the Japanese in World War II. About 180,000 Asian labourers and Allied Prisoners of War were involved in the building of it, with some 90,000 labourers and 16,000 Prisoners of War dieing during it's construction. The railway clings to the side of the Kwai gorge and in places rides over wooden trestles projecting from the side. The river is crossed at the town of Kanchanaburi by the famous Bridge over the River Kwai.
