Arrived in Bangkok 27th staying till 2nd July, finally managed to go to see the bridge over the river kwai although it is actually Kwae,but the film changed the spelling. There is nothing left of the wooden bridge only the old iron bring that was partly destroyed in the war, hence the japanese had the wooden one built. They also had some built from the Burmese side joining up with the thailand side,. This they had the prisoners of war build in a short period with a loss of thousands of lives. Excellent experience just a bit to commercial.
Also went to see the museum where they have a replica hut showing were the prisoners slept or tried to. They had about 2.5 feet each for this.
Thai people have a comemorative cemetery for the English, Australians and Dutch also a couple of other cemeteries for other nationalities. Only visited the first, the local people take excellent care of the place it is pristine, if you get the chance go.
It can be an uplifting experience, makes you realise how lucky we are now.
Another place worth a look is the Dusit Zoo, quite small but worth a look. Animals looked after quite well, although some enclosures could do with being bigger.
