    Took a ride out to the fabulous 166-meter long suspension bridge at Mae Kuang Dam, (Chiang Mai, Thailand)

    Back in 2016 I noticed a lot of construction work going on here at the dam. At that time my mode of transport was just my little 115cc Yamaha Fino, which meant it was a bit of a bumpy ride to get photos of the construction.

    Fast-forward to recent times and the bridge is finally complete. However, the road is still a work in progress.

    On my last trip (this time last year) the route was rutted dirt in sections and some large rocks, making it a much more bumpy ride. Now the route is compacted, making it more accessible to vehicles.

    It's a wonderful place to visit with a great little cafe and eateries on the east side of the bridge. Location here:

    Hope you enjoy the video. Have a good week! :)

    Another very Cool trip and video. It's a good thing you had your Macgyver skills all sharpened up for the Google Bike mast failure. Which leads me to my next question, can you link the mast brand/type and is it automatic raises and lowers by cell phone ? I think that makes your videos really stand out having a chase camera following you.
