About
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.

Me and my family went to visit Mon Bridge. Kanchanaburi The weather is good and the nature here is very good. It's so good that we went in winter, it felt like we were in a foreign country. We come to the bridge since 5 am. It's very cold. Then we wait for the monks because we will make merit and offer food to monks. After making merit, we walked to the bridge between Thailand and Mon. It's really beautiful and our family took pictures together. And we will continue walking because the side has a lot of things for sale. the people here are so cute My family and I went to almost every store that sells the 555. There is a wide range of items such as clothes, food, souvenirs, home decor, decorations and much more, and a good trip is a good family trip.

A very interesting place to hang out for a while. Make sure you visit in the morning. At 6.45am (early May) an alms ceremony takes place at the end of the Mon Bridge. Basically a Thai tourist opportunity as there are many Thais dressed up as Mon people taking photos. Nevertheless an interesting time. If you go make sure you visit “Student Coffee” - down towards the river on the right. You won’t be disappointed.

Mon Bridge used to go here last year. I like it very much. Beautiful view and get to know the culture of his hometown. I feel comfortable every time I see it. I'm very impressed. Before going home, I walk to find souvenirs. Souvenirs are not very expensive. Service people are nice and friendly. Overall this place is very good. I recommend everyone to try it. Then you will appreciate this place. And hope the covid-19 will be gone. Will definitely go here again 😍

The Mon Bridge is the longest wooden bridge in Thailand and is the second longest wooden bridge in the world. The views on the bridge were wonderful especially in the morning. We gave food to monks on the Mon village. We stayed at a hotel on the Thai village. We also took a boat tour from a pier on Thai side.

Sangkhlaburi is an idyllic place and well worth visiting as it is off the tourist trail and a must-do for the tourist who wants to see "real Thailand".
The 400m long wooden Mon bridge - longest in Thailand - over Vajiralongkorn Lake connects the Mon village "Wang Kha" with the Thai and Karen side of town.
Saw no other Farangs in the vicinity of the bridge or village, which added to the incredible experience: local woman in traditional dress; young boys swimming; washing clothes; washing themselves...
Ordered coffee at the small establishment at the Sangkhla end of the Mon Bridge and young guy brought us a pot of green tea, three thimble type of receptacles, and then disappeared leaving us confused.
Returning several hours later to pay when we were told the tea was free! also, we inadvertently crashed a funeral... Lovely, friendly people.
Planning to return soon as want to hire a canoe to paddle out to the sunken temple - when the reservoir was built - and visit the Karen and Mon villages that are only accessible by 4X4.

Beginning from the Mon Village side of the Mon Bridge is the way to go, as it begins in shade and offers nice photo ops early on. Then, as you break out into the open over the water, everything works together to amaze! The street lights on the bridge gleam gold, the views of the hills and resorts upstream are lovely, the families living at the foot of the bridge offer glimpses of daily life, from bathing to laundry to eating, etc, in nice Thai homes. Then the view directly ahead of a lovely community at the other end is just fantastic. The bridge itself is a marvel, with great photo ops along its length. The stands at the other end offer refreshment and souvenirs of the classier kind, and the gathering of boats docked on floating bamboo is entertaining below. It is worth a couple hours all by itself.
