The Bamboo Bridge Pai, also known as Boon Ko Ku So, is an 800-meter long bridge that stretches over a field of lush rice fields in the Mae Hong Son region. You don’t want to miss out on visiting the Bamboo Bridge Pai, as it is one of the most popular attractions in the area!
WHERE IS THE BAMBOO BRIDGE PAI & HOW TO GET THERE
The Bamboo Bridge Pai is located 11km south-west of Pai on the same road that leads out to Pam Bok Waterfall and the Pai Land Split. The drive to the Bamboo Bridge Pai should take no more than 25-minutes from the centre of town.
The best way to get around Pai is on a scooter to explore all four corners of the region. Scooters can be rented for a little as 150 Baht per day from one of the many rental stores in the centre of Pai. Alternatively, some accommodations have scooter rentals available for around the same price. A money deposit or passport is generally required for insurance purposes.
If you aren’t confident with riding a scooter, you can hail a songthaew (pick-up truck with bench seats) to get from A to B. Make sure to agree on a price with the driver first before jumping in the back.

WHAT TO EXPECT AT BAMBOO BRIDGE PAI
There are a few things to do at the Bamboo Bridge Pai such as grabbing some food and coffee from the cafe on top of the rice fields, feeding the fish in the small pond, visiting the Buddhist temple and of course bouncing along the bamboo bridge from one end to the other.
The best time to visit the Bamboo Bridge Pai is when in the rainy season, July – November, when the rice is long and lush. Visiting outside of the rainy season you can expect to see brown and yellow fields but the scenery is still very beautiful nonetheless. The mountainous backdrop at the Bamboo Bridge Pai makes for great photo opportunities.
The Bamboo Bridge Pai can get quite busy during the day so if you want to experience this location without the crowds, aim to get there at around 8-9am.
