We were very glad to see this checkpoint, since that means our long journey from Chiang Mai had ended. The significant landmark is a World War 2 period green truss bridge with wooden ground crossing Pai river. We strolled around for a stretch, walked on the bridge, took some photos and bought some souvenirs.

Not sure why so many tourists consider this bridge a photo spot. There is nothing unusual but there is a rich history behind it since it was built during WWII.

Nothng much to see here unless you're really into old iron bridges. The small narrow bridge runs parallel to a new modern bridge across the Pai River. There are commemerative plaques on one side of the bridge.

I saw this riding my motorbike so I stopped and walked along it. It was a nice bridge but nothing I really needed to see. Just out of Pai 20 mins.

Iron bridge built by the Japanese during the last world war. It is a memorial but offers little interest.

A lovely little homage to the story of the bridge built under Japanese orders during World War 2 to being rebuilt for the convenience of Pai.

The materials for the present bridge came from the old Narawat bridge in Chiang Mai in 1973 after an earlier bridge was destroyed by floods. It is easy to spot the two sections - from the Pai end a British military Bailey bridge leading to a section from the USA.
In WW2 the Japanese used forced labour from the surrounding villages to construct a strong wooden bridge from which to attack British held Burma. On their defeat they burned down the bridge and the villagers constructed another wooden bridge which was swept away by floods in 1973 to be replaced by the metal one seen today. Now there is a new masonery bridge. On the Pai side the historical descriptions are only in Thai but plaques on the Chiang Mai end are in English.
It is nice to see that trouble has been taken to preserve this relic of WW2 and shows its importance to the present day villagers.

An old metal bridge. Nothing much to see. Just an old short bridge during WW2. can stop by and have a look not more than 5 mins.

Worth a look just to say I've seen it 7. No obvious historic value. Nothing more I can say. Please accept this honest appraisal even if it doesn't yet meet the 100 required letters

It was a scenic place on the river to stop for a short break. The bridge is located just outside of the village of Pai and is an old historical iron bridge from WWII.
