  • The bridge is worth a visit if you are interested in history and the 2nd World War. Otherwise, she's no architectural masterpiece. However there can be found the Thai Jack Sparrow, which makes pretty good photos if you are interested in. Otherwise, there are still some shops for souvenirs or something to eat.

  • A tourist attraction next to the main road out of the city, while the victim arrived at the bridge side of the aisle, there are several grocery stores. Can cross the bridge to reach the other side, but go to afternoon sun, hot weather episodes, it is strong. History of the bridge and conspicuous read before reaching the bridge, there are people visiting take a visit at any time. If not, this would be more than interesting hot.

  • A picturesque historical bridge that's still standing right next to a much more modern and utilitarian-looking one. Great place for photo-ops.
  • it's not that interesting. If you have a scooter check it out but otherwise I'd say just don't bother. It's nothing you have to see.
  • This bridge was built by the Japanese in the WWII to help their logistics in the country. It might have some historial significance, but to me, it was just an old bridge, missing some wood parts (probably on purpose) and with some photo ops. There is a Captain Jack Sparrow actor around there taking very funny pictures with tourists. There was also a bamboo rafting activity but didn't see anyone trying it out.
  • Nice sunset viewpoint
  • Just an old bridge with historical story behind it..
