Attraction details
Owner description: It is the longest wooden bridge in Thailand and it was built for comfortable transportation of people living in Sangkhlaburi and Mon Villagers. Nowadays the bridge is closed for vehicles but you can still walk over the wooden bridge. The bridge is a popular place to see an unforgettable sunset or sunrise at the dam. You also can take a bath like the Mon kids.

“Bridge to another ethnic experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Go early in the morning when the monks cross in the morning fog. Crossing from Sangkhla to the "Mon side" affords visitors a peek at a culture, and an ethnic group, very different from the Thai side. Yes, there are plenty of touristy souvenir stalls, but when you experience how these people live, you understand the value of the items you purchase. It all helps this sustenance community.

“A miracle of ad-hock construction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

The Mon bridge in Sangkla is a must see for visitors to the area. It is truly a miraculous construction. The longest wooden in Thailand and not a right angle in it. Since I am a frequent travel to the area I have seen in low water and high and actually jumped off it with some local kids a few times. It makes for great photos and best of all it is a totally functioning part of the town connection the Mon side with the Thai side.

“Stunning sunrise view! And relaxing sunsets.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

I think the view from this bridge in the early morning might be the most visually stunning view in all of Thailand.....at least in terms of easy to reach places. I havent enjoyed a morning cup of coffee with a view like that for many years. Bring your camera and go to bed early.

“definitely worth a trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

head over the bridge into the village for some cheap shopping or take a boat from below it to the sunken old city - very cheap and definitely worth it!

“Beautiful views of the lake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Just to nap some beautiful views of the lake from this bridge. At the one side of the bridge, our resort was located. On the other side, the Mon village with the temple.
