Kwae Bridge Week Fair (November 26-December
During World War II, the black iron bridge was brought from Java by the
Japanese Army and reassembled under Japanese supervision by Allied prisoners
of war as part of the "Death Railway" that linked Thailand with Myanmar.
Also made famous by the movie of the same name, the bridge on the River
Kwae (or Kwai) is the setting for this week-long series of events that
also possesses attractions, including archaeological and historical exhibitions,
and rides on vintage trains.
The German's celebrate Oktoberfest while the Thai's have their own, the
Thai Beer Fest. The festival is arranged at the World Trade Centre Plaza
to enable everyone to come along and have a jolly good time. It also features
sales of barbecued food, seafood and Thai culinary specialties along with
music and cultural performances.
