The explanations are only in thai. Nothing to see but shops and cafes around. Eventually children in traditional clothes asking for money after you take pictures. Pass by...

Whilst I love a bit of history, it's hard to see what part this bridge played (if any) in World War II as there isn't any real information on or around the bridge (not in English anyway) to tell you anything about it. Worth a look if you are passing anyway tho.

Stopped here for a short time to view this supposedly authentic WW2 bridge built by the Japanese. Sadly it appears that this bridge is relatively new, the original one having raised to the ground by the retreating Japanese Army. The original wooden bridge linking Chiang Mai and Pai was built at the village of Ta-Pai by the Japanese Army using... More

Good to visit in the evening when the sun is no longer beating down. This bridge is just one of many tourist sites in Pai. It's worth crossing the bridge off your list, when you cross it. Just a short walk back and forth to take some pictures. Not a place that would consume a lot of your time. There... More

Its a bridge, its green and about 100 metres long + its over a small river. If you visit it you'll say the same thing.

Good to see a second world war bridge and take some nice pictures. It is nice to make everything that they offer a tour by your own. It's like 15 minutes from Pai in a scooter. You can make everything by scooter, is really close.

As far as I understood from the signs, the original wooden bridge was in the same spot, but destroyed after the war. They then rebuilt the bridge, which was again destroyed somewhere in the 70's or 80's. So they then decided to build a metal bridge as a reminder of their local history...so it's not the original bridge, but yeah...looks... More

I wouldn't recommend going specially for the bridge. There is nothing special about it. I really liked the one in kanchanaburi but the one in pai is not anything interesting. Nice small river view.

This is a pace of history. Read the sign for detailed information - originally this iron bridge was built in other place. During WWII the Japanese army built a wooden bridge here then burn it. After long ride in the car, this bridge can give a short walk to recover, while looking at the river and surrounding area.
