Bamboo Bridge, Luang Prabang

(3/5 based on 480+ 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.

  • There are 2 bamboo bridges, I liked the one which takes you to a very nice restaurant right on the other side of the river 
  • This bridge is built each dry season. The other side of the river has a good restaurant but there isn't really any other reason to go across other than the experience of crossing on a bamboo bridge. 
  • The bridge over the River, which is only available in the dry season. Great to see how the new bridge will be built each year, and hand-crafted that someone local may in this way to make a living. The fact that the bridge is the top tourist attraction in the village of tell something about the peaceful nature of the place.
