Ko Ku So, the name of the bridge means the ‘Bridge of Merit’. It runs through the length of rice paddy fields and was originally built as a short cut for the monks to walk to the village. It’s a beautiful and peaceful walk, with the mountains in the background and water buffalo in the fields.
At the start of the bridge there is a donation box, to help with upkeep, and if you do make a donation and walk the bridge you are promised the blessing of good luck – hope it’s true!
At the end of the bridge there was a small cluster of shacks. In one of them a local lady was giving samples of homemade chips. Out front she had a huge table that was a drying rack for garlic chips. We tried all she had to offer and settled on buying a bag of puffy pumpkin chips, which were delicious.
