This is River Kwai bridge, crossing over the river. It was used in the 1957 popularized movie “Bridge on Riwer Kwai”, though Hollywood supposedly built a copycat of the original bridge for the film. I saw this bridge live on January 2008 in Thailand. The story behind can be read in for example a book called “The Thai-Burma Railway – The True story of the Bridge on the Riwer Kwai” by Rod Beattie.
