Thailand: Bridge over the River Kwai

On Saturday I got two postcards: one from Thailand and one from China.

The card from Thailand shows the Bridge over the River Kwai. The Bridge over the River Kwai was built between 1943 and 1944 as part of the Death Railway. It became famous by Pierre Boulle's novel Le Pont de la Rivière Kwai and its British-American film version.

On the backside are various postmarks of the Asian International Stamp Exhibition.
King Bhumibol (from set of fourteen) (issued 10-10-2010)
Visak Day (from set of four) (issued 03-05-2017)
with First Day Special Postmark

Thank You very much Cherry!
