A bridge too far in Tha Wang Pha
|Suspension bridge in Tha Wang Pha|
An old suspension bridge with a wooden drive-way, crossing the Nan River. This were once the only kind of bridges to cross the many rivers in Nan province in Northern Thailand. Luckily most of them have been replaced by real bridges. Well replaced .... most time the new bridge is build next to the old one. And at many places you can still see the old bridge (or the left-overs) next to the new bridge. And although there is here a clear sign "Forbidden for bicycles and motorbikes" the bridge was in the 5-min that we were there crossed 4 times by people on a motorbike. Blind? For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan.
Update December 2020 : The bridge has been removed and they started building a new bridge.
