Konyu Cutting / Hellfire Pass – Remembering a Hellish Past || Thailand


Today, this place is a beautiful place of forest and trails for walks and quiet contemplation. But behind it is the sad World War II history of thousands of men from Australia, Britain, Malaysia (then Malaya), the Netherlands and many other places, who were forced to work on the ‘Death Railway’ connecting Thailand and Burma to create a supply line for the then Japanese Army’s war effort. TamuAsia’s Managing Editor, Nadge Ariffin, could not help crying as he recited a prayer for those who died making the Konyu Cutting.

When here, don’t miss the compact but most informative Interpretive Centre where a simple 20 minutes of video, photos and reading will help you understand why Nadge cried.

Location: Kanchanaburi, western Thailand
