This is an amazing bridge to visit, the wooden structure is so well built; and to think of the conditions it was built under. You are able to walk along the tracks, and this is a great experience given the height of the bridge and the lack of handrails.

Tham Kra Sae and Tham Kra Sae Bridge are two stops on either side of the famous Wang Po viaduct on the Death Railway. This is the spot where the Khwae Noi river makes an S-bend away from the tracks and offers the most scenic views of the entire journey. Unfortunately, the train stops here only for a few minutes....

Tham Kra Sae Bridge was extremely beautiful, just looking at the wooden structure and remembering those who built it, seeing the train go over the wooden structure is remarkable.

this is a bridge which is popular with 'death railway'. You only need small times in here because not too much things to see. If you have tight schedule, you can skip. If you plan to have lunch here, it is better to make reservation because it will be so crowded of group tour.

This scenic section of the railway overlooks the Wang Pho Viaduct. It runs along a trestle bridge which is one of the main highlights of the railway line. The train will slow down along this part for the passengers to enjoy the scenic view while those at the Tham Krasae station gets to enjoy the slow moving train along the... More

Another part of the Thai-Burma railway constructed by allied POW's and slave labour, including Krasae cave, which was used for shelter during the building of the railway by POW's. It also contains a large golden Buddha.

We toured the Hellfire Pass Museum, walked the pass and then took the train to this location. The views of and from the bridge are beautiful, we really enjoyed seeing the cave with the Buddha images and shrines This was a great wrap up to all of the historical pieces we had toured

If you take the Death Railway train you will pass over this bridge - we did not walk the area of the bridge or the cave, but we got very good shots by riding the train and taking photos during the ride.

when you take the train to this place and stop at this bridge, you'll be stuck at this place until the next train to Kanchanaburi come. A walk to the area only takes at most 30 minutes. The view was nice, but for more than 1 hour to see the same view, it's rather boring.
