The End of the Line
The western terminus of the infamous "Death Railway", built during the Second World War by Allied prisoners of war, Thanbyuzayat is a worthy pilgrimage. There's not a lot to see in the town itself, but the railway station and the war cemetery, which contains 3771 graves are moving reminders of the horrors of war.
