Lovely Walk
Mar 2020
This is a really lovely walkway that passes the country side with great views. Well worth a visit as not much else to do around here.

Super scenery in a long bamboo bridge
Feb 2020 • Couples
The scenery is wonderful and very peaceful,the bridge is really long but worth crossing it because it ends in a very nice monastery where you can rest your mind and body for a while listening the most wonderful sounds from the bells,go and check it out for sure!

A bridge made entirely out of bamboo, that’s something you don’t see everyday. Walking on the bridge, you will see beautiful landscapes all around. The bridge leads to a small temple in the mountains. Then you have to go all the way back to where you entered. I love walking, so I enjoyed it here a lot.

Check recent google map photos before heading there
Dec 2019
The green field beside the bridge isn't available all year round, so you better check recent recent google map photos before heading there.

We went there knowing it is not going to be green, in fact yellowish and quite empty (like a balding field) because the harvest is over, so we were knew what we were in for. It is just a short drive out of MHS for us to continue our journey to Pai.

There is a make shift car park a few hundred metres before the bridge, in the residential area with very narrow 2-way road. A couple of small stalls selling local food/souvenirs along the short walk to the bridge.

It is a bamboo bridge across a field
Nov 2019
Honestly, if this wasn't in travel guides nobody would go there. Just an excuse for the locals to try to sell you another pair of baggy elephant trousers. Oh there is a barber shop but we didn't go in.

A short driving trip out of Mae Hong Son
Sep 2019
Less than 30 minutes drive out of Mae Hong Son, is this small village off the main road.
Driving towards the village using our Google Map, it leads to a parking lot just outside the attraction.
There's a clean toilet and also a small stall selling local souvenirs.

A must to visit in Maehongson
Aug 2019 • Friends
"Sutongpe" is the name of the bamboo bridged built across the rice field from one hill to another side as well as the name of Shan Buddha Image in Mynmar-influenced style temple located st the top of the hill. In Thai culture and Buddist relegious, monks who walk across the rice fields to receive food offerings would step on rice causing the rice pkant to die so people in the village would summon to help building yhe bridge so that monks do not have to walk across the paddy field. This is also the origin of the bridge Thai name "Bridge of believe" to help those who contribute to find peace. It is beutiful most in rainny season when it is green every where especially when it's raining. Another time to visit would be the harvest season when all the rice fields turn golden yellow when touching the sun at dusk or dawn. Plantation starting from May to July entirely deoends on rain, this year (2019) the rain came late not until now which is August. So 4 monts after, which would be around end of November to early December wiukd be the hsrvest time. By the way the place is just 15 minutes drive from Maehongson town. Yoy can vidit there in 2 hours but if u are really interested it coukd take 3-4 hours to see everything. I met these 2 tourist from Germany sitting relaxing around the area waiting for the rain to stop while I was siak in the rain, so bring your own umbrella and ennjoy the peaceful and beautiful scenary.

Go for the view

Only the walking surface is made of bamboo sheets, you get to see nice rice fields backed by lovely mountains. There is a temple under construction at the end of the bridge and a restaurant, bicycle are available to explore the area. Most lovely after a heavy downpour

Quite pointless
Aug 2019
Unless you are into paddy farming then rather pointless to go.
It’s a 500m bamboo bridge connecting the main road to a temple over paddy fields.
Nothing to scream about.
