Fodor's Review

Next to noisy Saengchuto Road, Kanchanaburi War Cemetery has row upon row of neatly laid-out graves: 6,982 Australian, British, and Dutch prisoners of war are laid to rest here. The remains of the American POWs were returned to the United States during the Eisenhower administration. A remembrance ceremony is held every April 25, Australia and New Zealand Army Corps Day.
