The Death Valley Railway and some

So my Journey in 2013 took me to Thailand, and Kanchanburi, one of the stops for the Death Valley railway.
In this slideshow you will see;
HellFire Pass
Wampo Viaduct (Wang Po)
Buddha Cave
Tham Kra Sae Sation
Bridge over the River Kwai

Just a point to note the river Kwai wasn't/isn't the river Kwai, its the river Mae Khlung. Because of the book that was written, people really wanted to see the Bridge over the river Kwai, so i 1960 it was renamed the Kwae Yai.

I know the music to this slideshow is a little upbeat, and to be fair I didn't want something mournful (not that I am in any way irreverent) but I think i wanted to give a feel of a better place now, after all it does attract some 5 million tourists every year. Kanchan is a thriving and busy town.

I hope you enjoy having a look around
