Only open for 6 months a year, this shaky bamboo bridge will take you across the Nam Khan river back and forth between Baan Phan Luang (Restaurant Dyen Sabai) and the town centre. 5.000 kip for ONE return. 10.000 kip for a day ticket.

The bridge looks much scarier than it is. Best time is closer to sunset, the surrounding area is beautifully lit at that time.

At least 2 of them are easily seen from the street longing the Nam Ou River. They were in re-construction. I bet they are wiped away during the raining season when the water rises several meters up the bank!

It gets washed away every year so great to have the iconic bridge back. Good to connect to the other side and some interesting cafes and craft shops

I'm not a fan of anything that wobbles over water, and this bamboo bridge fell into that category. Since he was going to cross it anyway, my husband insisted that I make the effort too. I slowly white-knuckled it across to find a restaurant on...More

The bridge is narrow but stable and you see great views in every direction. At the far end, across the river from Luang Prabang, it's a short hike up to some shops and a cool little restaurant, Dyen Sabai. With low tables and cushions on...More
