This is part of what made history. The cute station of the same name reminded me of the railway station of Fiddler on the roof !

I think if you can read more about the history of the bridge the more special you will feel while you are visiting the place. Good to see the old trains here ,enjoy the sun and relax.

One of the places one will see the old wooden structures making the train journey possible, also a cave with a buddhist temple inside. Again many eating houses and a market selling some good stuff including Thai clothing. Some great photo opportunities too with a view over the river.

Not really a bridge so much as a trestle, hugging the side of the mountain. The original trestle was built by prisoners during WWII as a major link of the Burma-Thai railroad. Now rebuilt, the trestle and rail line is still used. Great views to see the train slowly traverse the trestle. Good vantage points for viewing the train and... More

We we're taken here by our guide to visit the cave which is accessed via the railway bridge where there is a great viewing point down the valley and across the river. The cave was once used by the Japanese army during the building of the railway. It is now a Buddha memorial which is fairly typical of what you... More

Okay, you wouldn’t get in the car and drive for 45 minutes to visit this place. But like most Kanchanaburi attractions, it goes well as a side trip on the way to another destination. One of the best is to combine the cave with a train ride to Nam Tok. You can avoid the mess at the Kanchanaburi station with... More

This is an amazing bridge to visit, the wooden structure is so well built; and to think of the conditions it was built under. You are able to walk along the tracks, and this is a great experience given the height of the bridge and the lack of handrails.

Tham Kra Sae and Tham Kra Sae Bridge are two stops on either side of the famous Wang Po viaduct on the Death Railway. This is the spot where the Khwae Noi river makes an S-bend away from the tracks and offers the most scenic views of the entire journey. Unfortunately, the train stops here only for a few minutes....

Tham Kra Sae Bridge was extremely beautiful, just looking at the wooden structure and remembering those who built it, seeing the train go over the wooden structure is remarkable.
