Wooden Mon Bride is the longest wooden bridge in Thailand. This bridge is like a landmark of Sungklaburi district. Visitors would be amazed from how beautiful this bridge is, and it can become more remarkable when knowing that the bridge was built by the collaboration of residences in this area. When staying here for a little, visitors can also see how Mon people live. This attraction is located in Sangklaburi district, which is next to the west border of Thailand.

This Wooden Mon Bridge is officially named Uttama Nusorn Bridge. It was built in order to connect with Mon village so that people from either side of Songalia River in this area can easily transport to the other side. Due to becoming old-age bridge and safely purpose, at the present any vehicles are not allowed to transport to the other side, but people can still walk over the bridge.

The best time to look around this Wooden Mon Bridge would be from 6 AM – 7 AM, because Mon villagers make merit (give food to monks) at that time. The time recommended is not so hot too walk around also. If visitors would like to see buildings in Mon Style, to eat Mon Food, or to buy souvenirs back home, Mon village across the bridge is the place to go. Note that Wooden Mon Bridge is also a popular place for visitors to enjoy looking at sunrise and sunset at the dam.

Although at the present Mon living style has changed from what it was in the past, the atmosphere of Mon village is still be there. Also, most of residences in adult age go to work in the city, so local people that visitors can see there mostly are old people and children.

To visit this place, visitors do not need to pay for entrance fee. To go to this bridge or Sangklaburi, visitors can take a VIP Bus or mini bus from Kanchanaburi bus terminal in the city. Those who come from Bangkok can also take a first class bus (Bangkok – Three Pagodas Pass) from Northern Bus Terminal (Mo Chit), 5 AM or 6 AM.

Underwater Temple is one of most interesting attractions in Kanchanaburi because this attraction is really different from many others. The temple ruin is under the water, where normally we can see only the topmost of the bell tower. Visitors can take a boat to see the ruin in the water, but if they visit this attraction in summer season, March – April in Thailand, the water is dried enough for visitors to walk inside the building to see how it is.
