U Bein Bridge at Sunrise or Sunset ,
Info : U Bein Bridge at Sunrise or Sunset
The U Bein Bridge in Mandalay is the world’s longest footbridge made almost entirely of teak spans just over one kilometre on the wide and shallow Taungthaman Lake, supported by more than 1,000 poles, mostly crafted from teak. Stroll from one side of the bridge to the other in around half an hour, and watch life on the lake go by. It’s particularly vibrant at sunrise and sunset when monks, fishermen and village residents make their daily commute across. It’s also possible to make the trip by paddle boat, which is particularly stunning in the early morning and at twilight.

My favourite [guide] was Aung in Mandalay. We only had him for one day, but he was determined to show us as much of Mandalay as possible in the time allotted, was obviously very proud of his city and country and was a pleasure to be with. He even took us to meet his uncle who was the Abbott of one of the many monasteries.
