At 1.2km, U Bein Bridge, which spans Taungthaman Lake, is the longest teak bridge in the world. Having been built in the mid 1800s, it’s impressive that it’s still standing. I admit, I was a bit nervous crossing the bridge as there are no guard...More

Nothing like removing a village to build a bridge. I’m really glad that they did though. This is an interesting area along the river with so much farming, fishing and beautiful birds.

The best place to take photos of U BEIN BRIDGE is not on the bridge, but under it. Wandering & sit from a close distance under the bridge is the best way to enjoy U BEIN. Then you can join other visitors to walk on...More

It looked beautiful, very much like in the pictures. The bridge was dangerously crowded and discouraged us from walking too far for fear of falling! Going on Christmas eve might have played a part though. The water below has a lot of mosquitoes, put on...More

This bridge was built by Mayor U Bein during the reign of King Bagan. So, his name was given to this bridge and it is 45 min drive far from Mandalay. In the rainy season, we can see vast water area. In the winter, we...More

Braved the early morning start for the sunrise however, the sun decided to stay covered on this occasion. Was still really good to see the locals using the bridge. Many people mediate and exercise in the morning. I visited on the evening for the sunset...More
