This iconic landmark connects Phuket island to the mainland. The bridge serves as a pedestrian bridge with two watch towers linked by a walkway with a pagoda located in the middle. Ornate lamps that once lined the walkway have been removed.
The bridge is named after Pote Sarasin a former prime mister of Thailand.
It is know as one of the most beautiful bridges in Thailand which from a distance is correct. Up close it is dilapidated, dirty and smelly. Another construction that needs some sort of maintenance.
Thai folklore tragedy surrounds this bridge. Two young lovers forbidden to see each other leap from the bridge, embraced together to their death.
The pagoda provides a great view of the Andaman sea & Phang Nga Bay and the surrounding fishing village and longtail boats.
If passing stop and visit.

The drive to this bridge that connects the island of Phuket to the Thai mainland is somewhere we always visit when in Phuket. The drive around from Patong is enjoyable and the walk from one ned of the bridge to the other is a nice way to relax and enjoy a great example of Islamic inspired architecture.

Absolutely useless empty dilapidated place with nothing on it or around it. Don’t waste your time. No food and no toilets either

There's a good news for Thailand lovers like me , Although Phuket is an island but you can go there Via Bus or Car. There's an amazing 660-meters bridge that is called Saphan Sarasin. The bridge connects Phuket island to the mainland of Thailand, imagine you are in Krabi and suddenly you miss Freedom Beach in Phuket, don't worry the solution is very easy, go to the first car rent shop and rent a car (1200 Baht Daily) and set off for the Freedom Beach. Or assume it's high season and you can't find a direct flight for Phuket island, don't worry and listen to me, First: Catch a flight for Bangkok. Second: take a "Grab" and go to the Bangkok Southern Bus Terminal (Sai Tai Mai), it takes about one hour. Third: buy a ticket for Phuket Bus Terminal 2 (in tambon Ratsada), the bus trip takes about 12 hours and the average ticket price is 1100 Baht. And if you want to stay less than 1 week in phuket, it's better to rent a car from Bangkok airport (credit card is needed) and drive to phuket , and when you finished the trip, drive back to Bangkok and give back the Car. Crossing the Sarasin old bridge (buil in 1951) is always exciting. The 11-meters width bridge holds the name of "Pote Sarasin" Thailand's Foreign Minister.

This was a pleasant end to the bike ride from Mai Khao beach. Fishermen were friendly and the view was quite pleasant

We had been wanting to see this connection between Phuket and mainland Thailand and so on our last night, decided to stay at a hotel near to the airport (which is not too far from the bridge).
Our hotel arranged for a taxi (3 wheeler tuk tuk), collected us and took us to the bridge. We walked across, watched the locals fishing for their dinner, took a few pics and then had a refreshing drink at one of the small eateries at the foot of the bridge.
A pleasant experience but nothing else to do there.....

It is a very long bridge, a bridge overlooking the sea and this bridge is a legend of love. At present, no cars run as a place to watch the scenery and take beautiful pictures. You will come in the morning or evening. The scenery is beautiful. If you come, you will like.
