Bridge Over River Kwai - Thailand

Rode the Death Railway train from Nam Tok station to Tha Kilen station - just outside of Kanchanaburi. This daily train still follows a portion of the historical Death Railway.  A great one hour+ experience - hanging out the windows trying to get that awesome shot.Upload from December 09, 2011Rental bungalows along the way.Upload from December 09, 2011One of the local children waiting for the train to pull out of Tha Kilen station.

The bridge is still in use today and although it was partially destroyed through bombing raids during WWll, the curved spans are the original sections.Upload from December 09, 2011

Walked across the Bridge River Kwai and caught a longboat from the other side of the bridge for a substatially lower cost - the long boat driver took us to see a cave further along the River Kwai.

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
