What we say: 3.5 stars

On Sangchuto Road, nearly opposite the train station and right next to the Death Railway Museum, you can visit the remains of 6,982 Allied POWs who died during the construction of the railway.

The very well-kept cemetery has a reverential atmosphere, emphasised by the uniformed veterans who occasionally stroll among the graves.

Neatly laid out in row upon row, this is the more commonly visited of Kanchanaburi's war cemeteries and is well worth the time to wander, reading the markers of those passed.
