We went there as strongly suggested to. Our initial reluctance came from the fact it requires a long drive to get there. But I have to admit, there is something special about that bridge. And I don't really know what. We saw mostly local people...More

This wonderful, historic teak bridge is a must see in Myanmar - there are no guard rails on the edge, yet I strolled along with the rest of the locals and tourists (and hundreds of Buddhist monks) without fear. Inexplucable to me, as I have...More

This is a real photo opportunity, not worth taking a boat trip as the lake is low and you couldn't get near.A popular place for locals to stroll, so of course lots of hawkers and food stalls making a lovely atmosphere, I bought my hat...More

Went to U-Bein bridge a large teak bridge apart fron a bit that was repaired with concrete piles . It is very popular with locals and tourists alike and a good place to see at sunset from a sunpan in the lake.

I suppose that where you find big groups of tourists you'll also find hawkers there waiting for them!! So don't be surprised to see them or have them follow you persistently!! U Bein Bridge is a long narrow teak wood bridge, built on hard teak...More

It's not that impressive and we were there on a Sunday and there were a lot of events around the bridge. Hundreds of people (tourists and locals) on the bridge and dozens of people who have a stand on the bridge try to sell you...More

Very picturesque wooden structure about 45 minutes from Mandalay. Best time to go for the full effect, and especially for photographs, is about 30 minutes before sunrise, when there are fewer tourists and the light is beautiful as the sun comes up. Be sure to...More

We walked along the path to the steps in the middle, and in parts it was very muddy. But by the steps is a star pump etc so you can clean up! The walk is fascinating, but if you are scared of heights, you might...More
