Bridge Historic Site
Built by Japanese soldiers during World War II, Pai Memorial Bridge originally served to transport weapons and provisions to Burma. 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. Nearby you'll find plenty of cafes and souvenir shops to round out your trip. Put Pai Memorial Bridge at the forefront of your travel plans using our Pai itinerary builder.

  • Nice to visit but you have to realize that the current bridge does not have much to do with the bridge ever built by the Japanese in WW2.

  • Costs nothing, is not particularly. Briefly at the passing stop is sufficient. When one stands on such motives, can you make some nice pictures.

  • Be careful because in some places the wood needs replacement. The bridge is a sign with a word of explanation. Impressive and much less crowded than the bridge over the River Kwai.

  • Interesting, a little dangerous for kids since the wooden planks are not so safe anymore. Nice view. Established 1912.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Worth a visit. Take some nice pictures. On the way to / from Pai canyon.
  • Interesting historical place, try to walk down and go around the bride, from the ground it more beautiful.

Where to stay in Pai

With tourism now the number-one industry in the area, you shouldn't have any trouble finding accommodations in Pai. In fact, on a walk through the village center you'll be hard-pressed to find a street that doesn't have several hotels or guesthouses. The village's popularity among backpackers means you can choose from a range of hostels and budget guesthouses. Luxury accommodations are more limited, although with a host of excellent mid-range options you can stay in comfort without spending big bucks. When Pai is at its busiest, between November and March, try something on the fringes of the village for a quieter, more peaceful holiday.
