In any  case, the first phases of the development were plagued with such a large number of issues that superstitious workers declined to proceed unless the area spirits were  pacified. After conferences with celestial prophets, the erection of a hallowed place to respect the four ­confronted Brahma God, Than Tao Mahaprom, was thought to be a favorable arrangement. A sublime picture of the Brahma God was particularly thrown and plated, and The Erawan Hotel opened to recognitions and overall acclaim for three decades. Towards the end, the property couldn't contend with more cutting edge offices, and was replaced by the exclusive Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok in 1991. As the shrine was initially developed to match the grandeur of the old Erawan Hotel, the area came to be known as the Erawan Shrine.

    World War had caused such enormous destruction around the world. And Thailand wasn’t spared as well. One of the areas include Hellfire Pass, which is the name of railway cutting on former Death Railway or Burma Railway.

    The place was built through forced labor during the World War II. The pass is called Hellfire pass because of the sight of emaciated prisoners who worked endlessly to build the pass.



    Highlights: The highlight is the Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum, which is designed to pay tribute to those who lost their lives and worked forcibly for the construction of pass. The museum concept had its origins when former prisoner of War Tom Morris convinced that the Australian Government that the section should be preserved as a historical site.

    Today, that place is run by the Australian government and one can walk through the railway track, listen to audio tour and see the world through eyes of a war.

    Location: Hellfire Pass

For resort comforts, privacy without total isolation and convenient snorkeling, head north where the coastline gets rockier but the silence makes it worthwhile.
