Ride into World War II history on the "Death Railway"

Thailand's most famous train ride starts at the steel-trellis bridge rebuilt after the original was bombed in an episode dramatised in the film, Bridge Over the River Kwai. Separately, the memorial and remains of an abandoned length of track at Hellfire Pass encourages visitors to appreciate the roughly 105,000 souls who died toiling from 1942-45.
