During World War 2, the Japanese used Allied prisoners of war to build a railway from Thailand to Burma so they could supply their army without the dangers of sending supplies by sea.

 

Many prisoners died under appalling conditions during its construction, and the line became known as the 'Death Railway'.

 

It was immortalised in David Lean's 1957 film 'The Bridge on the River Kwai' which centres around one of the line's main engineering feats, the bridge across the Kwae Yai river just north of Kanchanburi. Although the film was shot in Sri Lanka, the Bridge on the River Kwai really exists, and still carries regular passenger trains from Bangkok as far as Nam Tok. For anyone interested in 20th century history, a visit to Kanchanaburi and the infamous Death Railway is a must.

The Kingdom of Sukhothai was an early kingdom in the area around the city Sukhothai, in north central Thailand. The Kingdom existed from 1238 until 1438. The old capital, now 12 km outside of New Sukhothai in Tambon Mueang Kao, is in ruins and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage historical park.

A few more from Thailand

Chiang Mai, Thailand.

One of the seven waterfalls from the Erawan National Park in Thaïland. I had no chance with the weather on this day, but I find that the picture can take place on my Flickr gallery. Thanks in advance for your favs and comments.

Many years ago my dream of travelling to the Land of a Thousand Smiles had to be abandoned at the last moment because of the tragic devastation wrought by the Tsunami. When I did finally travel to Thailand, I left my heavy Nikon kit at home and opted for the Fuji XE-1 which had just come out. Fuji with it's "un-bayered" sensor turned out to be a mixed bag. Build quality and ergonomics which harked back to the golden age of Leica. Intense resolution and vivid saturation. But also noise at ISO 400 and shutter lag which marred many an interesting shot of the streets of Bangkok. After returning home I took a look at the photographs and felt disheartened by the results. I dumped the files on an external hard disk, sold the Fuji kit and went back to Nikon (and a few months later to Canon). Yesterday I felt like revisiting Thailand and Cambodia so I browsed through my folders and found many pictures which I liked. I discovered that all the photographs I had shot in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, Cambodia had been deleted. No idea when and how it happened. But it brought home the knowledge that digital files can disappear into the dark! Thailand too was a mixed bag. A beautiful land where tradition and modernity have been effortlessly blended. Where tourism has been honed into a fine art. But somewhere in that manicured perfection something has been lost. The raw and untrammelled beauty of nature has been overpowered by the relentless need to survive and grow as a tourist destination. Nevertheless, a wonderful land of (still) smiling people, shimmering paddy fields, deep blue waters, wonderful sunsets and Bangkok's fabled temples and fantastic street food!

My GF and I took some time off in Spring and traveled through Asia. Used an aschtray as a tripod for this shot at the Bottle Beach on Koh Phangan, Thailand. The green lights are boats fishing for squid.
