    Though there is nothing amazing about this spot, it is a good enough piece of history to take in. Decent views and low traffic. I wouldn't go out of my way to get here but if you're out on a scooter, ...  more »

    I ride over the bridge, and in fact there are two bridges, one is the new bridge, used for normal traffic, a bridge is a World War II-era, was photographed attractions. Standing on the bridge should be able to feel the scenery of 70 years ago, green rice fields here, such as Lake, who would have thought that year at war. Tribute to tengchong, China Expeditionary Force in defeating the Japanese, which is recording the history of the bridge, not only because of its grave and solemn, but it carries over to attack Japanese forces in China, the army permanently in tengchong.

    A memorial bridge constructed during Japanese occupancy era. Overall it could be very touristy & overcrowded with people. There are many souvenirs shop & some local members on the bridge dressed as pirates & charged you for photo taking with them.

    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.

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.
