Planning a route around Thailand? Then you should strongly consider at least a couple of nights in the absorbing town of Kanchanburi. Primarily known for its dark World War Two history with the construction of the infamous Death Railway, you’ll discover a string of related sights that will educate, fascinate and appall in equal measure. Beyond the specters of the past there’s also a lively party scene, the world famous River Kwai and access to a number of nearby national parks.
