We went over it coming back from the Hill, and we wondered why the driver was excited to take us over it. He explained its the much older version of the pretty new bridge thats next to it. You can see for miles, and watch the currents in the water from above. Great views around and worth a look. I... More

This older bridge is more interesting than the new bridge. It still has railway in middle. Driving across this bridge seems more adventurous.

I never imagined that there would be so many people in boats doing the same thing as us at sunset. Anyhow it was wonderful to see but I was disappointed that we couldn't at least walk on the bridge for a bit. The views at sunset were great and the drinks in the boat were an extra treat.

On our sightseeing day of Inwa and Sagain Hill we crossed over the new 3 span Ayeyarwady Bridge bridge on the way there and over... More

The Ava or Inwa Bridge is an old cantilever bridge that was constructed by the British in 1934. It is an interesting narrow structure. If you were going to Sagaing, it would be worthwhile to travel on the Ava Bridge one way at least. This bridge can be seen from the newer Yadanabon Bridge (to the north) and from Soon... More

On the way to Sagaing Hill then stop off at the bridge entrance to take a photo looking towards Sagaing Hill. Great perspective and great photos. Also take a photo of the British built bridge close by built in 1934 and if possible return back by this bridge later.

We had our own motorbike and after Innwa headed over to Sagaing so decided to take the old bridge. You can learn the history from the earlier reviews so I won't repeat it but it's a bridge with history & character, so why not ride it? I believe they charged a nominal amount of "toll" money, but I had expected... More

A very old bridge, this too has a lot of history, but well maintained & very long, its built over the river Irrawaddy, which is the longest river in Myanmar. Good for photographs.
