River Kwai Bridge Week 2015 in Kanchanaburi, Thailand

This upcoming weekend includes River Kwai Bridge Week in Kanchanaburi. Running until the 7th of November, the world famous Bridge over River Kwae becomes the focus of celebrations. The bridge was built by Allied prisoners-of-war (POWs) during World War II. The week long event highlights historical and archaeological exhibits as a carnival takes place among folk and cultural performances. Learn the history of the bridge, ride on World War II vintage trains, and last but not least, take in a spectacular light and sound show which re-enacts the bridge’s World War II legacy.

Then event is organised by the Phuket King’s Cup Regatta Organising Committee under the auspices of the Royal Varuna Yacht Club, in conjunction with the Yacht Racing Association of Thailand, the Royal Thai Navy and the Province of Phuket.
