Ko Paen Bamboo Bridge, Kampong Cham

4.1
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Kampong Cham
Traverse the captivating structure of Ko Paen Bamboo Bridge, as it bears pedestrians, motorbikes, and cars across the mighty Mekong River. Considered the longest bamboo bridge in the world, it can seem unstable on first impression, but taking a stroll or bicycle ride across the structure confirms its craftsmanship. At almost 1 km (0.6 mi) long, the impressive bridge has to be rebuilt every year, after the Mekong annually rises and washes it away. Consider a visit during sunset to make the most of attractive photo opportunities.

  • In the meantime, it was built a new bridge - concrete. The times of the bamboo bridge are past.

  • This bride has been demolished and no longer exists it is a dead parrot, dead it is not alive it nolonger exists  more »
  • The bamboo bridge was replaced by a modern bridge! Still worth it to spend on the other side by renting bikes or scooter to visit the island, which is really beautiful
