U Bein Bridge Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
City of Pagodas: Mandalay
A trip to Myanmar is a journey of the soul and Buddhist culture, washing away the restlessness deep in the soul and making it more peaceful and joyful.
Mandalay, Mandalay Province, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the second largest city in Myanmar, is not only the economic, political, and cultural center of Myanmar, but also a famous city of pagodas and a tourist destination.
Mahagandayon Monastery, also known as the Thousand Monks Monastery. It is the largest monastery in Myanmar. Every morning, tourists from all over the world gather here to witness the shocking scene of thousands of monks having meals together. There are no restrictions on vegetarian or non-vegetarian food in Myanmar's monasteries, and the monks eat whatever they receive as alms. There are two meals a day, at 4am and 10am, and only water can be consumed outside of these times.
Emerald Buddha Pagoda, the only pagoda in the world built entirely of emerald. At night, the emerald body emits a soft green light, bringing a sense of peace and tranquility to people.
Ubun Bridge, the world's longest century-old pomelo wood bridge. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world to watch the sunset. As the sun sets in the west, standing on the wooden bridge with your loved one, basking in the afterglow, it is so romantic and happy that it is also known as the "Lovers' Bridge" by the locals.
Mandalay Palace is mainly red and gold in color, showing the noble temperament of the royal family. Although it is not as luxurious as other palaces, it is particularly grand. Climbing the tower, the entire palace is in full view, leaving nothing to the imagination.
Gudutao Pagoda, meaning "the greatest merit pagoda in the world", has 729 cloud stone tablets inside, on which the Tripitaka is carved. If a person reads for 8 hours a day, it would take more than 400 days to finish reading them all. These stone tablets are also known as "the greatest books 📖".
Golden Palace Monastery, a stunning masterpiece of zelkova wood architecture. Originally a golden palace, after years of wind and sun, the golden color has faded, leaving only black memories: the carved figures on the wooden doors and windows are arranged in an orderly and three-dimensional manner, making this 150-year-old monastery a classic of wood carving architecture.
Beautiful Sunset at U Bein Bridge
U Bein Bridge has become one of Myanmar’s iconic landmarks, the bridge was constructed in the 1850s by a mayor, built out of 1, 086 posts, total length 1,200 meters acrosses the Lake Taunghthaman in Amarapura, and is believed to be the oldest & longest teakwood bridge in the world, the surface planks are from the old royal palace of Inwa.
I went there on January, because the weather is more cooler. The best time to see the most beauty of U Bein Bridge is in the sunset time, the slanting rays of the setting sun gave a warm orange tinge to the sky, gorgeous & peaceful, certainly becomes the most hunted photographed site for tourists and even locals.😉😎
The world’s longest teak bridge
U Bein Bridge is a must see attraction in Mandalay. It is one of the best places to contemplate the sunrise and sunset. Apart from being a tourist attraction, this bridge is also a road for locals.

THE OLDEST & LONGEST TEAKWOOD BRIDGE
A day in Mandalay to cap off my trip in Burma. 🇲🇲
📍 U-Bein Bridge is a crossing that spans the Taungthaman Lake near Amarapura in Myanmar. The 1.2-kilometre bridge was built around 1850 and is believed to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world. This spot remains one of the most beautiful sunsets I gazed on! 🌅
The Taungthaman Lake is near the ancient capital of Amarapura, and the bridge spans it. It was once the royal capital, but it has now been merged into Mandalay. The bridge was built around 1850 and is named for U Bein, the mayor who commissioned it. (U is a Burmese honorific that is essentially equivalent to Mister, except that it is earned rather than given, and it denotes someone who is esteemed in the community.)
Although parts of the original pillars have been rebuilt with concrete, the structure was originally made of salvaged teak from a nearby palace. However, a surprising number of the wooden pillars survive, giving the bridge its shaky appearance.
The bridge is still widely used by local pedestrians, but it is also a popular tourist attraction, particularly after sunset. Tourist-chartered small wooden boats glide under and around the bridge, lining up on the western side just as the sun sets behind the bridge's shadow.
The western bank is congested with souvenir dealers, tour bus drivers killing time, and restaurants.
Bagan Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Bagan temples is highlight of our visit to this ancient city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the 11th and 13th centuries, 4,446 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains alone, of which the remains of 3822 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day. We got a sense of the landscape of Bagan and its temples by a balloon ride in the morning followed a visit to the main temples over 2 days. We started with Ananda temple which is one of Old Bagan temples which well restored and then we saw sunset over the Irrawaddy river from the Bu Paya temple. The next day we visited the imposing three-storied Htilominlo Temple, which is currently being restored, the Upali Thein and red bricked Khaymigha temples nearby towards Old Bagan on the road from Nyaung-U.
Get up at four in the morning, simply clean up, take the camera and ride the motorcycle to the depths of the woods. Despite the sleepiness, but when I think of a beautiful sunrise, I will be strong. The stupa Xu Sanduo is the ideal place to watch the sunrise and sunset, because it is the tallest pagoda that allows visitors to climb. So, every sunrise and sunset, visitors from all over the world will gather here. If it is a little late, don't think about a good location. Standing around the top of the tower, Bagan's stupa is unobstructed, the camera is set up, the parameters are adjusted, and the surrounding partners are waiting for the dawn. More and more people came to see the sunrise, accompanied by the noisy crowd, and occasionally came out from the surrounding insects. There was a glimmer of light on the horizon, and a narrow dark red glow was gradually revealed. The 10,000-way glow was sprinkled on the distant stupa through the clouds and was covered with a golden glow. It began to fog around, and from afar, the stupa was looming, like a fairyland. After a while, a group of hot air balloons crossed the morning sun and slowly took off... After watching the sunrise, I came to the Irrawaddy River and ordered a simple breakfast in front of the breakfast stalls on the side of several old towers. My trip to Bagan.
My habit of traveling in the past is that I can't live early, only black. It was tempting for the beautiful sunrise of Bagan. This time it was an exception. It started early at 5 am.
The sky is unclear, the Irrawaddy River is still hidden in chaos, and our motorcycle lights are thinned through the night, along the dirt road between the jungle
Suddenly a half-drilled black-skinned little brother, like Wang Baoqiang in "Thai", actually riding a motorcycle all the way to follow us, we must take us to a tower to see the sunrise, with Go and see that the tower is not high, the surrounding stupa is thin and covered by trees, it is not suitable for taking pictures.
The morning dawn has already appeared, and I am not waiting for it. We decisively return to the ancient tower where the sun was shining.
I climbed the top of the tower and looked around the mountains for a long time. The morning smog and the spires stood still. At this time, the sunrise has been in the east, and everyone is looking forward to the sky, and the morning glow is bright, like the Buddhas light, and the earth shines.
Soon, the sun took off the colorful and charming coat, and it became a high-hanging daylight.
A hot air balloon sitting on a 300-dollar float from a distance, swaying through the thousands of stupas in the rays of the sun, slowly disappearing on the Irrawaddy River.
The beauty of the world is often hard-won, and it only disappears in an instant.
Luan Bagan is an ancient city of Myanmar, a Buddhist cultural site, and a famous tourist destination. It is located in the middle of the border and is located on the left bank of the middle of the Irrawaddy River. Located in the middle of the Irrawaddy River flowing through the central part of Myanmar, it is the center of the Burmese.
The urban area retains many Buddhist pagodas and Buddhist temples built in various historical periods in Myanmar. The architectural art of the Buddhist stupa is the epitome of Myanmar's ancient architectural art and is a precious historical and cultural heritage of Myanmar.
You can choose to rent a horse-drawn carriage in Bagan, or you can choose to rent an electric car. Most hotels can rent electric cars, and the price is about 6,000 kyats to 8,000 kyats.
Bagan Thande Hotel Opposite the hotel, like Thande has a strong Burmese style, even more exaggerated is that there is a stupa in the hotel... The old Bagan hotels are different, but I am still more Like the linden tree in Thande.

#timetotravel #myanmar #lake
Beautiful Inle Lake
Discover a Myanmar less discovered, and take a half (or full) day boat tour to the villages around Inle Lake. We arrived by afternoon, enough time to wrap up the tour with stunning sunset. Serene and simply magical. Villages of simple homes made of wood and woven bamboo rise on stilts above water that, in sections, with elaborate floating gardens. The lotus fabric weaving workshop was also worth to visit. Overall experience was excellent.
For those hesitant of boat adventures, fret not: the boats are extremely comfortable, not at all sea-sickness-inducing, and each passenger is seated in a very relaxing armchair of their own for the entire ride.
Getting there - 1 hour domestic flight from Yangon to Heho Airport in Shan State.
Few places represent so clearly the meaning of Myanmar. There is so much to see and do in Inle Lake and, above all, to feel, that it is best not to follow any other scheme than the one it proposes.
Although Inle Lake is actually only 11 kilometers long, it is spread over so many marshes and canals that its watery influence ultimately extends for just over 100 kilometers.
Fortunately, the shores of the lake are still largely untouched by any constructions that might obstruct such a dreamlike panorama. Nyaungshwe, the most important city with the largest tourist infrastructure, is connected to the lake by a canal of approximately 4 kilometers, which distances the Natural Reserve from any self-respecting urban commotion.#nationalpark
Inle Lake (Burmese: အင်းလေးကန်; MLCTS: ang: le: kan, [ʔɪ́ɰ̃lé kàɰ̃]), a freshwater lake located in the Nyaungshwe Township of Shan State, part of Shan Hills in Myanmar (Burma). It is the second largest lake in Myanmar with an estimated surface area of 44.9 square miles (116 km2), and one of the highest at an elevation of 2,900 feet (880 m). During the dry season, the average water depth is 7 feet (2.1 m), with the deepest point being 12 feet (3.7 m). During the rainy season, this can increase by 5 feet (1.5 m).The watershed area for the lake lies to a large extent to the north and west of the lake. The lake drains through the Nam Pilu or Balu Chaung on its southern end. There is also a hot spring on its northwestern shore.
Large sections of the lake are covered by floating plants. Its clear and slightly alkaline waters (pH 7.8–8) are home to a diverse fauna and many species found nowhere else in the world (endemics). There are more than 35 native species of fish, including 17 endemics. Some of these, notably the Sawbwa barb, red dwarf rasbora, emerald dwarf rasbora, Lake Inle danio, Inle loach and the Inle snakehead, are of minor commercial importance for the aquarium trade. Several fish that are not native have been introduced. Additionally, the lake is home to about 45 species of freshwater snails, 30 of them endemic, along with a small endemic freshwater crab, Inlethelphusa acanthica. It hosts approximately 20,000 migratory gulls in November to January.
In June 2015, it became Myanmar's first designated place of World Network of Biosphere Reserves. It was one of 20 places added at the Unesco's 27th Man and the Biosphere (MAB) International Coordinating Council (ICC) meeting. Since 2018 it has been designated as a protected Ramsar site.
Mandalay Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
who told i hit some random people and become a don?
everyone. i hit was a don already
Myanmar is a country with ethnic diversity and religious diversity. Most people here live a comfortable life. Create value through your own labor. The days of walking in Myanmar felt the enthusiasm and temperature of the people here. Although there was an accident, I returned home in advance. I hope to continue the wave next time.
