Chung Kai War Cemetery

Cemetery in Kanchanaburi

Smaller and less visited than the war cemetery in town (but just as well maintained), Chung Kai Cemetery honours 1400 Commonwealth and 300 Dutch soldiers. This was the site of one of the biggest Allied POW camps. Prisoners built their own hospital and church close by and the majority of those buried here died at the hospital.

The cemetery is near the river, 2.5km southwest of the Wat Neua bridge. It's easily reached by bicycle.
