Nowadays, the iron structure has become a popular tourist attraction and photo op site. The worn planks and overgrown bushes tell of the wear and tear this historical structure has undergone.

  • A memorial bridge for world war 2, was a lot longer than I expected. Nice to stand on and watch the river flow by. Very old now as it's missing a few boards in places!  more »

  • Cute bridge loads of tourist shops around. When the river is high you can rent bamboo floats which looks amazing. Not a must see but if you have the time why not
  • Worth a visit. Take some nice pictures. On the way to / from Pai canyon.
  • An interesting little piece of Thai history that many people might not be aware of. Quite out of the way, but if you have a motorcycle, I suggest adding this to the list of things to visit on Route 1095. Good for taking pictures, and there are plenty of souvenir shops for those who are so inclined.
  • Interesting historical place, try to walk down and go around the bride, from the ground it more beautiful.
  • Simple to visit. Free. Nice view on the river. You can make good photos. But very simple not a must see
