This year the River Kwai Bridge Week is back with a transformation that is expected to leave an everlasting impression on visitors. 

Starting Friday and running until Dec 16, Kanchanaburi province will present the signature River Kwai Bridge light and sound show in a new format which, this time around, will be modernised and transformed into a spectacular action show.

The audience see a more exciting battle scene with simulated effects such as life-like explosions, flying bomber planes, and trains running through fire during a stunning scene when the bridge is first revealed. Other sequences include stuntmen abseiling down to the top of the bridge and a gunfight during a boat chase in the river and the bridge being bombed while a train crosses.
