Is the bamboo bridge still standing?
We were there in July last year and the Bamboo bridge went under water quite suddenly, after some heavy rain. We were planning on crossing over to spend time on the other side. Plenty of people not able to get back to their guest houses, there was 1 local boat ferrying people across but he eventually gave up as the river was so strong.
The bridge was under water when we were there in June this year, but there was a boat taking people over instead.
