Thunderstorms did not deter us to drive slowly through slippery roads. Upon arrival, staff members would warmly greet you and guide you. Portions of the area are under renovation but you are still allowed to go to several interesting points. Bring along a bottled water...More

If you have any interest in the WWII Burma Railway, then this place is a must visit. Walk down to the rock cutting where so many soldiers perished in the harsh conditions.
