  • גשר שלידו יש מספר מסעדות ומספר פסלים שבנויים מחלקי אופנועים ומכוניות. המקומיים אוהבים להגיע אליו.. בגשר עצמו אין משהו מיוחד. אם אתם בדרך, שווה עצירת התרעננות. 
  • The explanations are only in thai. Nothing to see but shops and cafes around. Eventually children in traditional clothes asking for money after you take pictures. Pass by... 
  • The bridge is a bridge made of steel... Would this only in the pass look at, never book a tour then! Can be inquired about comfortably by scooter!

  • 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..
