130 kilometres west of Bangkok, not far from the Burmese (Myanmar) border, you will find the bridge over the River Kwai, made (in)famous by the 1957 Academy Award-winning film of the same name. Grim history aside, this area of Thailand is rich in culture and natural beauty. The border area with Burma/Myanmar is known for its mountainous charm and is unmatched elsewhere in the country.
