River Kwai Bridge Week Festival 2020

A tribute to the thousands of lives lost in World War II when allied prisoners-of-war were put to work constructing a transport route from Thailand into Burma (modern-day Myanmar) that became known as the Death Railway, the River Kwai Bridge Week Festival in Kanchanaburi Province is an annual event that no visitor should miss. Running from 28 November to 7 December, 2020, this event takes you back in time to the building of the bridge over the River Kwai through a spectacular sound-and-light show that commemorates those who died and offers a glimpse into the past through battle scenes with simulated effects. 

In addition to the multimedia show, visitors can enjoy historical displays and exhibitions, cultural performances, local products and food stalls, and a Red Cross Fair.

Modern-day Kanchanaburi has much to offer the visitor including the JEATH War Museum, Hell Fire Pass Memorial Museum, Art Gallery and War Museum, Sai Yok Elephant Village and national parks.

Kanchanaburi is in Thailand’s west, approximately 135 kilometres from Bangkok. Travelling there by train is popular among both local and foreign tourists.
