Nice and preserved section of single track railway, still operating, passing through cliff and some wooden bridge pros supporting the rails. A cave with Buddha as well. Plenty of local shops at entrance to a local station selling T-shirt and local stuffs.

Although it was packed with tourists it is a beautiful train ride through the countryside. It demonstrates what hardship the POWs went through when building this railway.

A great experience and you can decide how long you wish to ride the train. It was built by thousands of Allied Prisoners of War. Learn some of the history before boarding and do not put your hands or head out the window. Visit the...More
