Rama VIII Bridge in Bangkok

The Rama VIII Bridge is arguably the most attractive and distinctive of the bridges over the Chao Phraya River connecting the eastern and western parts of Bangkok. The eastern side of the Rama VIII Bridge is located 500 metres of the Khao San Road, and is easily visible from the riverbank on the nearby Phra Arthit Road.

For the best views of the bridge we recommend that you take a Chao Phraya Express Boat at least as far as the Rama 8 Bridge Pier which is located just to the south of the east side of the bridge.

The Rama VIII Bridge is 475 metres long and 160 metres high, with a single pylon with 84 cables attached supporting the span of the bridge. What is particularly distinctive about the Rama VIII Bridge is that the pylon is positioned asymmetrically on western bank of the Chao Phraya River, rather than attached to the river as with the other cable stayed bridges on the Chao Phraya River.

Engineering considerations aside, the asymmetric design is visually appealing. At the top of the 160 metre high pylon is an observation deck within a lotus shaped steel and glass enclosure. For reasons unknown, this observation deck has never been opened to the public.
