We know we have nearly arrived at our hotel once this impressive bridge appears on the horizon. It is a work of art really and it is aesthetically pleasing as well as having important functionality.

It also makes for a fantastic opportunity as it majestically spans the river Chaophraya .

Very beautiful indeed!

Kinda reminded me of the bridge in Boston and in Brunei. Nothing really that impressive, just another long bridge going across the river.

We honestly just went here because the Sotus series filmed near it. It is very beautiful at night, we took a walk on the bridge and the structure is amazing. There is more than enough space for pedestrians to walk on both sides and the view and breeze is really nice.
We even saw some couples dating there.

Like a lot of bridges in Bangkok this one is a rather impressive bridge.
A good view point is from Santi Chai Prakan Public Park Suan Santichai Prakan

Where you can see it from the river side.

Bangkok is getting more beautified and interesting each year, and in this part of the city especially. Some great dining spots on decks over the Chao Phraya, this bridge has an otherworldly and distinctly Thai look about it **

Part of the Bangkok Skyline, this iconic and impressive bridge shows the engineering ability of the Thais.

Although some will say it is a landmark, there’s so many wonderful things in Bangkok, a bridge just doesn’t cut it as a must-see place.

It is nice travelling over it in a Songthaew or a taxi.

During our stay in Bangkok, this iconic single tower, cable supporting bridge, was our beacon in Bangkok. It was close to our hotel, so when we were out and about we knew we were nearly home when it came into view. It was also visible from our hotel room.

We drove over it when entering/leaving the City on tours, we also sailed under it on a cruise on the Chao Phraya River.

At night the gold/orange coloured metal structure on top of the tower looked like a flame.

Not a real attraction but a feature of the Bangkok skyline.

Also known as Bhumibol Bridge or Industrial Ring Road Bridge. It crosses the river twice -- in the middle there is an interchange -- and has two cable-stayed spans of 702 meters and 582 meters. There is no pedestrian path on the bridge so crossing on foot or bicycle is prohibited. But that's okay, as the best views are gained from the ground. At around 7 p.m. the bridge is illuminated by various light patterns of a variety of colors. 7PM will be the best to get all the colors painting your shots.

The Rama VIII Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge crossing the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok, Thailand.

It was built to alleviate traffic congestion on the nearby Phra Pinklao Bridge.

The bridge took four years to build and was completed in 2002.

The bridge was opened on 7 May 2002 and inaugurated on 20 September, which is the birth anniversary of the late King Ananda Mahidol (Rama VIII), after whom it is named.

King Ananda has a tragically short reign, being killed in a gunshot accident in 1946.

The bridge has a main span of 300 metres (980 ft), and was one of the world's largest asymmetrical cable-stayed bridges at the time of its completion.

At certain times of the day, particularly late in the afternoon, the sun bounces off the bridge, turning it golden - maybe a rival of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.
