An interesting sight to experience and walk across however there was significant flooding prior to our visit which washed the bridge away. It is constructed each year by locals in the dry season, made only out of bamboo and is used as a thoroughfare by...More

Traditional bridge built out of bamboo. You need your big girl pants on to walk across, as it's made of bamboo and is over a wide, fast flowing river. But has to be done when in LP in my opinion. Enjoy!

go there during the evening when there are a lot of people on the water. It looks amazing to see all the lights

First time visiting Laos and Laung Prabang, this bridge was beautiful and lovely. Walking a cross while fishermen waving at you, hearing the river flowing and nature all around, one of the best moments i had in Asia.

Amazing at night. Christmas lights light up the bridge and you can enjoy a lovely fondue at the amzing Dyen Sabai with the view over the intersection between the Nam Khan and the Mekong rivers.

We were really looking forward to seeing this bridge and to crossing it. Alas, it was not to be as it was washed away the day before we arrived and all we could see were broken stumps in the water. However, at night the paths...More

It was fun to walk over the bridge and enjoy the views of the river and the city. The bridge is a marvel of traditional engineering. Great pics and fun for the kids but really is only a 5-10 minute ordeal.

Made entirely of bamboo, the bridge connects the village to the town centre. We purchased a ticket for 5000kip each (paid to the small child at the end of the bridge) which apparently goes towards rebuilding the bridge when its swept away during monsoon season!...More

Great to see this bamboo bridge and also to cross it. Small fee of 5000kip/person to cross, fee goes towards bridge maintenance and local families. Bridge more stable than it looks from afar Nice restaurant on the other side with lovely views over the river.

This bridge looks scary from a distance but is really quite stable. A small fee will allow you to cross. A great restaurant/bar is over the other side so well worth the adventure

Hi, The bridge may or may not be there. It all depends on the weather condition. Should d bamboo bridge be swept away due to monsoon, there is another steel bridge nearby. But, nothing like walking on d bamboo bridge. Hope... More
