Presentation

Wat Phrathat San Don is about thirty kilometers from Lampang city. Although its buildings are clearly not among the finest Buddhist buildings in Thailand, its bamboo bridge is becoming famous. It is 360 meters long and passes over the rice paddies and connects the edge of Road 11 (just after the Thin Thai coffee) to the temple itself. The place is particularly photogenic when the rice is planted and the fields have a beautiful emerald green colour. The ideal time to come is probably from mid-July to the end of September.

At the end of the bridge, there is a Naga staircase leading to the temple chedi and other elements still under construction. It is up to you to choose where you want to start, with the temple but the road to get there is longer, or with the bridge easily accessible from main road 11.

Access to the beginning of the bridge is on the side of road number 11 in Phitsanulok - Lampang direction. From Lampang, head towards Phrae, you will see signs indicating where to u-turn for a few hundred meters before arriving at the bamboo bridge (right after the Thai Thai coffee). If you do not have any mean of transport, see with your hotel or negotiate with a yellow and green car to take you here, wait for you and take you back to Lampang city.
