So we were thrilled about the death railway and it was nice,and the views are great but it is way too long and the view doesn't change.It takes about 2 hours for each direction and it was just too much.

The trip along the river valley is spectacular as the track is set high up on the hillside. Don't forget the history of the place though as the line was constructed with the blood,sweat,tears and lives of many prisoners of war.

We have been to Kanchanaburi several times, but we have never taken the railway up to Hellfire Pass. It always seemed too hard to figure out - other than very expensive 'tourist' trips. The key is to visit it as a 'local'. First, go to...More

All people are different ! Sometimes 6 people are a crowd . Do yourself a favour ...Jump on the train & don't worry about it. If you get worried about people on the train...simply get off.
