It takes you from Song Kalia river to Mon Village, where you can sample the local food at a market stall or head to the temple. The bridge has been fully restored and certified as safe since heavy rainfall and a buildup of weeds caused it to collapse in 2013. Bring your camera, as the views of the surrounding areas from the bridge are spectacular.

  • Well worth the visit if you enjoy cultural outings. A wooden bridge that joins two different peoples. A beautiful location for it's scenic beauty and awesome vistas.
  • It is quaint and there are very few foreign tourists. The tourists are mostly Thai. It is also really relaxed and the lake, with it's semi and submerged temples is amazing. The Mon market on the other side of the bridge is also interesting. I believe the Mon women are considered the most beautiful in Thailand. Since my wife is a quarter Mon, I have to agree. Beautiful place, great food, interesting culture and totally relaxing.
  • Good day trip, if you like a bit of history and culture. Bridge is cool and free, boat trip is short but it's ok with great views and a few old temples. I suggest of you stay here find the P guest house. Beautifully and clean, staff friendly and speak good English and can swim in the lake.
  • Great wooden bridge with a nice history behind it you should take the time to read up on. The market below have Laphet thoke and other burmese specialities but you might need to ask for them.
  • The longest wooden bridge in Thailand, the 2nd longest wooden bridge of the world, spanned and connected the lives between the two sides of the River Songkalia. Have some 10 minutes walk and enjoy the sunrise over the lake (dam) on a 850-meters length bridge.
