If you like to cross over the Ping river you certainly will considerate to use Nawarat bridge. Very crowded in both directions has important function to join together two parts of the buetiful Chiang Mai town. Many good restaurants around.
A modern concrete bridge over the Mae Ping River. Quite wide with 4 lanes and easy to use with good pavements on both sides. Offers good views up and down stream. During Loy Krathong you can view small and large Krathong floating on the river.
