  • 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..
  • A bridge built by the Japanese and was used to transport weapons in the GM II, has recently caught more prominence by having filmed Love Thai film "Love in Pai". Usually take pictures emulating the protagonists of the history of love.
