What people are saying:

The ebony on the bridge is really old, some of the stakes have even cracked several pieces, I didn't wait until sunset in the evening because I wanted to go back to the hotel earlier, but I would say that this bridge is a must, and later I went to the monastery on the other side of the bridge, Not as good as the monks who are talking about, but you can go in and see.

Additional Information

Introduction

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."
