My last upload showed you some examples of narrow bridges and I told you I would show you some “extreme bridge”. Here it is: a “monkey bridge”.
One of the most amazing sights in the Mekong Delta is a person making their way across a “monkey bridge” (cau khi).

It’s a simple footbridge built of uneven logs with only a simple bamboo railing. The bridge is suspended more than 2m above the waterway and connects the hamlet to the main road.

When you first see a structure like this, you wonder why there is a scaffolding in the water. You realise it’s a bridge when someone walks across it.

There is a governmental programme to replace those bridges with safer ones but the Mekong region will lose something of its traditional landscape in the future. However, with thousands of bridges to dismantle and replace, I’m quite certain that there will always be some left to be discovered.

This will be my last upload for a little while and the series Vietnam 2013 will resume.
