Bridge Bangkok


Riding under this bridge by a long boat was a real eye thriller. The waves were bouncing us around as the tide moved upstream.

The Rama VIII Bridge is a cable-stayed bridge crossing the Chao Phraya River in Bangkok. It was conceived to alleviate traffic congestion and was constructed from 1999 to 2002.

It has eighty-four cables arranged in pairs on the side of the main span and in a single row on the other. The bridge has a main span of 300 metres and was one of the world’s largest asymmetrical cable-stayed bridges at the time of its completion.
