This notorious bridge was assembled by Allied Prisoners of War (POWs) during the Japanese occupation of Thailand in World War II. Part of a strategic railway route to Myanmar (Burma), the bridge became a target of bombing raids, in which approximately 16,000 POWs were killed while building the bridge. Every year a sound and light event commemorates the 1945 Allied attack and a special train runs from Bangkok to Namtock Station on weekends and national holidays.
