Visit Hell Fire Pass Memorial Museum for a more detailed story of World War II. Here, you can trace through history by discovering artifacts, photographs, and fun multimedia displays. Of course, Kanchanaburi is famous for its River Kwai. But no, the Death Railway is not the only spot to see. There are so many cool places hidden in this fascinating city. Endless restaurants with stunning views are there just along the river. Don’t forget to take a bite on the satisfying seafood dish, ranging from grilled freshwater prawns and fried Tubtim Fish.
