Ko Paen Bamboo Bridge, Kampong Cham

(140+ reviews on the web)
Bridge Tourist Spot
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. By using our Kampong Cham vacation trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Ko Paen Bamboo Bridge and other attractions in Kampong Cham.

  • This is a must-see while in Kampong Cham. We took a tuk tuk across, for $2 round trip. The bridge is beautiful and precarious. It's a little nerve-wracking but the craftsmanship is incredible. It's un...  more »
