  • 你不在身边,我也只有多拍拍景物与行人了,关于这座日本人纪念二战修的桥,留下的照片不少,超广用的也多,鱼眼貌似鲜有人尝试,这次来点与众不同的视角好了 
  • If you like us, on a misty moment visiting this place ..... feel the atmosphere of suffering experienced on this place

  • Not much to say really. Pleased I went to say I saw the bridge but was unimpressed. Two minute walk across the bridge with a small write up about the history.

  • 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..
