Nothing much to see... just a bridge over the Mekong River. It leads to the Golden Buddah on the other side if you start from Champasak Grand Hotel

It’s a bridge that has a separate part for pedestrians. You are more likely to cross it if you go by foot to the Golden Buddha. Ok you can watch the Mekong life from it, but it’s heavy trafficked too... I wouldn’t qualify it as...More

This a functional 2-lane bridge that crosses the Mekong and links Pakse with Thailand after about 40km. It is not a particularly impressive bridge, but there aren't that many of them through Laos and Cambodia.

We use this bridge everyday whether crossing over to Big Buddha Hilltop or towards to Wat Phu, or crossing the border over to Ubon Ratchathani, Thailand.
