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."

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Although parts of the original pillars have been rebuilt with concrete, the structure was originally made of salvaged teak from a nearby palace.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.
Ubuntu Bridge, a must-see attraction in Myanmar, is beautiful when it comes to suffocation
mentioning Burma. Many people will want to go to Ubuntu Bridge, which is known as the "Love Bridge." I am no exception. I came to Myanmar with my sister paper on the first day. I have seen many Raiders praise the sunset of Ubuntu Bridge, but I want to say that the sunrise is really good. Unfortunately, my camera is out of power, I can only record the shock that I visually see! So if you come here, the battery must be ready, and the sunrise and sunset are beautiful.
As the longest teak bridge in the world, if you come early enough, you will see tourists from all over the world waiting in line at the Maha Ghanaian brothel to watch the monks line up for dinner, and then thousands of people will walk to the meal after dinner. U Bein Bridge. But the total length of 1,500 meters, I have only walked a short time. Therefore, it is recommended to come early and feel it with the people.
The beauty here is romantic. Whether you are on board or on the bridge, you even feel great when you look far away. Not far from the sunset fields or temples, they are filled with peace and warmth. The East Lake is gradually dyed with a fascinating golden rose color. Xiaguang makes this beautiful lover bridge more charming and moving. Whether you are a local believer or a tourist, bathed in this golden color, the moment of arrogance seems to be a bit greedy. From time to time, there are monks, lovers, children, hawkers, and tourists who walk slowly, occasionally laughing and laughing, and laughing a little, then let go of the mood.
is beautiful any time. If you really want to take pictures, it is best to sunrise before 11am or after 4pm. At that time, the light was not so strong and soft, and the composition was good. If it is just a pure shot, you can do it. If you want to shoot people, it is best not to be too strong. Otherwise, it's hard to sit on your face, or you can close your eyes all at once. Especially try the silhouette! Awesome.
1With a few more hidden shoe stickers. Myanmar believes in Buddhism and does as the Romans do. Basically, you have to take off your shoes at every attraction. I am not used to always take off my shoes and bring this convenience. Not easy to be punctured.
2Ubun Bridge must rent a boat, charter a boat, and charter a boat. The important thing is said three times. The scenery on the ship and the scenery on the bridge are two extremes. If the scenery on the bridge is a hundred times shocking, then the beauty that is felt on the ship is thousands or even thousands of times! I have absolutely no exaggeration. The trunks included in the water can only be taken by boat.
3 Generally, about 10:30, a thousand people will start cooking. Don't be too close to the monks, we can go to visit and learn, but also do not bother with basic respect. You can follow them, but keep the proper distance. Especially pay attention to quiet.
4 Myanmar is super hot! Do a good job of sun protection and sun protection!
The smog and rain rushed to Mandalay, visiting the temple and Ubuntu Bridge
in Mandalay only a day in a hurry, visited the two most photographed temples, Mahamuni Pagoda Maha Muni Pagoda and Kuthodaw Pagoda Gudu Tao Pagoda!
Mahamuni Pagoda Maha Muni Pagoda is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Myanmar. When we arrived, the believers were putting gold on the Buddha statues, especially those who worship outside! The Kuthodaw Pagoda is a white tower, and the camera is particularly beautiful. Unfortunately, when we went there, it was cloudy, and it rained later, otherwise it could take half a day!
The most anticipated Ubuntu Bridge was also eclipsed by the rainy weather, but we originally planned to take a boat to see the Ubuntu Bridge sunset, which saved us! I said that there should be some regrets in the journey, and I will fill the pit again next time!
Golden Buddha Hall women can't enter, men must have trousers, can't pack. When you are taking pictures of a Buddha, you must sit cross-legged and cannot stand!
Wuben Bridge If you rent a boat to watch the sunset, the whole boat is 10000k minimum (4 people). If it is October - the next February peak season, you must rent a boat in advance, because there are so many people!
The Ubuntu Bridge in Mandalay is one of Myanmar's landmarks and is the place where most tourists have to check in. The bridge has a long history and is made of more than 1,800 teak, each of which is expensive. In addition to tourists, there are many hawkers and buskers on the bridge.
At sunset, the popularity has gradually increased. Whether it is a pedestrian on the bridge or a tourist taking pictures under the bridge. I will stop here to watch the sunset. The water level in
May is relatively low, so most of the rivers are dry. We turned under the bridge and found a favorable position waiting for the sunset to appear.
Tips: Recently watched as winter, there is no guardrail on the bridge, and you should pay attention to safety when walking.
