What travelers say:

The U Bein bridge is a must-go in Mandalay. It is especially good looking and photo taking during sunset. But be careful that the bridge is not guarded by handrails that I was afraid of falling down all the time. It is worthy to ride on a boat to taking photos.

Additional Information


U Bein Bridge is located near the ancient city of Amalapa, across the East Taman Lake. Built of precious teakwood, it has survived since 1850, likely making it the oldest surviving example of teakwood bridge construction. Sunsets over U Bein Bridge are very romantic and one of Myanmar's most famous landscapes. There are six pavilions along the bridge, which symbolize the "six spirits" of Buddhism. It is said that when Burmese people fall in love, they come to the bridge from a thousand miles away, praying for their love to last longer. To the locals then, U Bein Bridge is also called "the lover's bridge."
