U Bein Bridge is the longest teakwood footbridge in the world, spanning 1.2 kilometres long across the shallow Taungthaman Lake. It is a symbolic site in Mandalay and enjoys over 200 years’ history. The bridge was built with more 1,000 teak pillars and most of the original teak posts still remain.

Today, the bridge works for the locals to socialize and commute every day on foot. Seen from afar, the bridge is just like a long wooden-paved narrow path floating on the river, and it is one of the most photographed sites in Burma. The U Bein Bridge is a great retreat for friends and couples to meander along and enjoy a moment of tranquillity.

The best time to visit the bridge is at sunrise or sunset and to truly discover the beauty of this bridge why not walk across and then returning by paddle-boat as the sun is setting. You will see hundreds of villagers and monks commuting back and forth across the bridge, and a variety of local sellers would also pop up selling local handicrafts and specialties.
