Beautiful bridges in Thailand


Bridges in many locations in the world are beautiful and are famous among tourists, like the iconic Golden Gate in San Francisco and the Sydney Harbour Bridge in Australia.

With their symmetrical and spectacular structures, bridges are often the perfect backdrop that your photos look stunning and unique.

Unknown to many, Thailand has several beautiful bridges of its own that travellers can visit for a photo spree. 


1. Kaeng Krachan Rope Bridge
