Ko Paen Bamboo Bridge, Kampong Cham

4.4
#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.

    We did it on a scooter, it's great! We had a good laugh, the sound of the bamboo is impressive, but it's been a nice ride and good memories!
