The Bridge over The River Kwai, on the bank of Kwai Yai river was brought from Java by the Japanese Army and was assembled at the river Kwai by he war prisoners. Bombed several times in 1945, it was rebuilt after the war again. The curved spans of the bridge are the original sections. An estimated 16,000 war prisoners and 49,000 impressed laborers died during the construction of the bridge and Death Railway line that leads to Burma.

War Cemetery, this cemetery contains the remains of 6,982 war prisoners who lost their lives during the captivity of the Japanese Army that forced them to build the Bridge over the River Khwae and the Death Railway.

The Japanese following their invasion of Thailand during World War II, brought British, Dutch, Australian and American prisoners to Thailand by the Southern route.  Impressed laborers were also used to complete the rush construction of the railroad, which is an alternative to the sea route, to Yangon vis Singapore and the state of Malacca since the sea route was being closed in by Allied submarines and aircrafts.

Hellfire Pass, Once part of the Death Railway during the World War II and now abandoned.  Hell Fire Pass is so named because the lamps used for lighting.  The night gave it a hellish appearance.
