Bamboo Bridge, Luang Prabang
(3/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
Cross the Nam Khan River on rickety Bamboo Bridge, which often gets washed away by the rising water during the rainy season. The small fee you'll pay to cross helps a local family rebuild this structure each year. The open-air restaurant on the other side serves delicious local dishes, such as eggplant dip with a mix of black and white rice. Sit on floor cushions with your meal and watch as other travelers and Buddhist monks brave the wobbly bridge. Our Luang Prabang trip generator makes visiting Bamboo Bridge and other Luang Prabang attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Perfect example of ingenuity and know-how, fragile and nevertheless strong enough to resist between two floods in the Mekong River. Allows access to the other side of the river Nam Khan for a nice walk without particular difficulties.

  • The bridge is down, broken 2 days before we arrive, and they used to charge for crossing/use. Now in the same place are small boats to help people cross,very disappointing. 
  • Once again, tourists pay money for the crossing, 5000 kip. However, the bridge is destroyed each time in the rainy season and must be rebuilt. The money flows in the reconstruction. Thus, the small fee is not all wines. In November, it offers to take on a beach mat. Because the river is not so wide, a larger Sandy River area has formed, where you can sit in the Sun.
