The Burma Railway, better known as the Death Railway, was built by the Japanese in 1943 to complete the rail link between Bangkok and Burma. Both Asian labourers and Allied prisoners of war were bought to Thailand to work on the railway, a route that had already been dismissed by the British, due to the terrain, as too difficult to complete. The brutal conditions that workers were exposed to caused the deaths of 90,000 civilian workers and 12,000 POWs. Hellfire Pass, a railway cutting that saw the harshest conditions and greatest loss of life is now a lovely memorial walk and informative museum.
