Bridge to Sangkhlaburi the city of the Mon people

Bridge to Sangkhlaburi the city of the Mon people
It is the longest wooden bridge in Thailand linking Sangkhlaburi and Mon Villages. The bridge overlooks a scenic landscape and offers and opportunity to see local people’s way of life.

As the eastern Mon were absorbed into the Thai society long ago, the western Mon of Myanmar have settled in western Thailand after World War II and try to keep their sovereign tradition. In Myanmar, the Mon are fighting to preserve the Mon language and culture, and regain a greater degree of political autonomy.
