Ko Paen Bamboo Bridge, Kampong Cham

(4.3/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Walk from Monorom 2 Vip Hotel, through this bridge built in bamboo every year and every year dismounted, you can reach Koh Paen (Island Paen,) either on foot or by car, where you pay a toll of $1 per person. The island is inhabited by locals, rich in vegetation and color. Just left the bridge, marching amid the sand and dust for about a tiring kilometre, then the road becomes paved. In any case, it's worth.

  • Nice riding experience, possibility to rent a scooter, a tour of the island by tasting the fruits of local producers

  • The crossing at foot of the bamboo bridge is a unique experience due to the length of this bridge 800 m. It's like walking on a trampoline for almost 1 km it seems to be the last year for this bridge rebuilt every year after the monsoon, indeed a concrete bridge will soon connect the island of Ko Paen to Kampong Cham. The charm is no longer the same but for the inhabitants of the island it will be much easier to transport their goods to the market of Kampong Cham
