US$60.00
Overview
Explore Mandalay by bike on a guided bike tour that follows back roads and ancient canals, and then concludes with a spectacular sunset over U Bein Bridge. Riding a bike in Mandalay is a great way to explore this less-frequented part of the countryside. You’ll pedal alongside a guide and a small group of up to 10 people, to ensure personalized service.
Highlights
  • U Bein Bridge sunset cycling tour explores farms, fields, and villages
  • Watch the sun set over U Bein Bridge
  • Includes bike, helmet, water, and snacks for a safe, comfortable day
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Mandalay hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Mandalay; the departure time varies according to the time of sunset. You’ll be transported to quiet farmland on the outskirts of Mandalay, to begin the bike ride far from city traffic.

Your cycling route winds through a series of villages, and you’ll get a glimpse of daily life in the countryside as you greet the locals. One stop is the hometown of Mayor U Bein, for whom the famous teak bridge is named.

You’ll travel through the ancient Burmese capital of Ava, which offers shady paths that are ideal for cycling. Your ride concludes at U Bein Bridge, an elegant span fashioned from salvaged teak wood. Enjoy the last light of the day there, and then finish the tour with drop-off at your hotel.

This tour was great. Highly recommend. The cycling was not hard. I only wish I had brought a GoPro for on-the-move photography because I kept wanting to stop and take photos along the way. Our guide, Linn, was excellent. We unfortunately didn't have time to walk on the U Bein

Dan was a great and knowledgeable tour guide taking us around the village and ancient site of Innwa. Much better way to travel than horse and cart in my opinion because you move freely. Dan provides good snacks and we got to sample some local street food also. We cycled 21km (we
