Create an itinerary including U Bein Bridge
Gently curving across Taung Tha Man Lake, U Bein Bridge stretches 1.2 km (0.75 mi)--making it among the largest wooden bridges in the world. Erected on close to 1,100 pillars in the mid 19th century, the strong timber structure was built using teak from a dismantled teak palace. The footbridge provides an important passageway during flood season, but locals and monks use the bridge as everyday traffic. Chat in few resting areas, or watch fishers drawing their nets. Reflected upon the still surface of the lake, the bridge makes a popular photo opportunity. You can cross it by bicycle when it is not busy.

  • It's a very long wooden bridge - the only one I ever saw. We were lucky to make a visit in the late afternoon and great sunset view
