I appreciate that I am likely to be in a minority here, and certainly both my wife and friends we travelled with would probably rate this site as 'very good', but I was not very impressed with this bridge. Maybe it had been over-hyped so my views are a reaction to that but even so...
As a bridge it is not very special, I have seen plenty of other bridges of this, or similar, construction in a number of other countries around Asia, many far more beautiful than this one. Yes, it seems somewhat taller than usual, no doubt because of the floods which inundate the area every now and then. The main thing which makes the bridge special is actually just its length. Now that is different and certainly I have never seen a bridge of this type which is anywhere near as long so it is worth seeing for that at least.
Many people have commented on its peacefulness and maybe that is correct at some times in the day. However when we were there a bit after 0900 hours, a saleslady (mainly necklaces and similar) attached herself to each of us and accompanied us nearly throughout all the time we were at or on the bridge. We didn't mind too much as although it was a long bridge, it was low level selling and we mainly chatted to them about their lives, they were mainly teenage students who spoke reasonable English, so not too bad but so much for 'peace and quiet'. There were certainly plenty of other sales ladies waiting for the next tourists so not much chance to 'get away'.
Even at that time it was already quite hot and no shade on the bridge other than a few 'huts' where more handicraft sellers were waiting though there were also benches where one could sit down. When we were there the water was very low so that possibly made it more unattractive than at some other times.
So, for me, an OK site but definitely not a 'must see'.
