While roaming the streets on our rental bike during Loy krathong 2014, we couldn't stop and park fast enough to jump into the crazy and packed to the brim crowd gathered on nawarat bridge for the lantern releasing ceremony all along the whole bridge, view was incredible be dream like, look to the left or right towards the other two...

We used this as a landmark to find the markets and main public area for festivals. We were here for Loi Krathong, when there are 3 days of celebrations and if you were close to this bridge you didn't miss much. The hot air balloon making we wandered into was amazing. All made of tissue paper and once airborne pyrotechnics... More

This is hardly a spectacular bridge or a "must-see'. Pleasant enough , its main merit apart from carrying traffic is to get the tourist accommodated on the far side to the Night Market or the Old Town. Going the other way you will find a number of good restaurants and lively nightspots.

One of the coolest things I found about Chiang Mai was near the base of the bridge, on the same side of the river that Riverside Restaurant is on, you'll find a few basic Thai restaurants. Really low key, and not offering anything special in terms of food or drink, but quiet and relaxing... hopefully will still be after my... More

That fact that there are several Chiang Mai attractions ranked lower than the Nawarat Bridge says more about those "attractions" than the bridge itself. As others have noted, there is nothing noteworthy about this bridge. It facilitates people moving across the river without getting wet (most of the time).... that's about it. You can also sometimes get some nice photos... More

This bridge connects the out lying Chiang Mai with the area near the night market, between the bridge and that area are many small everyday markets to explore if you have the time.

I walked over either this bridge or another one to get to the other side of the river from the main part of town and then back again over another bridge to Chinatown. There wasn't much to see on the other side of the river except yet another Wat (actually ,a pretty one if you are not already all Wat'd... More

Most of the posts here are showing photos of the modern Natawat bridge, made of concrete spanning the Mae Ping river. The actual Bridge that should be pictures is the steel bridge that was reconstructed in the 70s from the WW II steel bridge remains. This bridges is only one way acrossed and is steel over head structure not modern... More

...but going to review it anyway. Are you ready? It's a bridge. Cars drive on it. Sometimes I walk across on it. Actually, why isn't the other bridge listed? The one down river made of iron girders. Now that's quite a nice bridge!

The best part about this bridge is that it get you across the river to the side where Love at First Bite is located.
