Where is the Kwai river?
River Kwai in Thailand today, but there was no such river when the "bridge on the River Kwai" was created. The movie tells a fictional story, and the film crew built a wooden bridge on the Mae Klong river. This part of the river was then renamed Khwae Yai to bring geographical fact more in line with the movie.
