Sunset is the time to visit along with 1000 or so other people who are either on the bridge or in boats on the water. Hang onto your camera because if it's dropped in the water - it's gone. Some think it's just a bridge but I found it entertaining talking to locals, taking photos for tourists on their cameras,... More

A worth day trip from Mandalay, don't miss the sunset, and go on the boat, the sunset is best seen from the boat looking at the bridge. All the surround area is also nice, walking along the bridge is an experience. For me, it was my second favourite place in Myanmar, after Bagan. I went there for sunset twice during... More

If you walk slowly and not in a big group it's quite safe. But if you drop your camera, it's likely gone. I don't recommend taking young children, though you can do a boat trip instead. I didn't walk all the way along the bridge as the best sunset pictures are at the start where you get the floating temple... More

It was a 1.2 mile walk on an uneven bridge with no rails in hope of finding a good photo. I kept hoping to see something special, but it was mainly exercise in the heat and sun. The views of Sagaing Hill are inviting but too far for a great photo.

This was a spectacular finish to our cruise with Pandaw on "The road to Mandalay". I was not overly keen on going, but am so happy I did. It is a serene place and absolutely divine to be there for sunset. It is an incredible bridge to walk upon and a beautiful place for photos and a relaxing almost "gondolier"... More

This bridge and its soroundings are beautiful and its a great place to encounter the local tourists- couples, families, old, young and fishermen. Don't miss this uniqe place and walk on it if you dare: the spaces between the wooden blocks are quit wide and there is no railing what so ever!

We walked the entire 1.2km of the bridge in the heat of the day. Largely beautiful some of it is concrete although we were told there are plans to replace with teak again. Told it is beautiful at sunset. We got a boat back, solely due to the heat. Worth the walk.

This is popular attraction place when visit Mandalay, the longest teak wooden in the world. Like public garden park around the world, people are lining to rest, chit chat or do activity in the bridge. Sunset or sunrise is the best to do.Cool!!

The bridge is 1.2 kilometers long and well worth the walk. It was the rainy season and the lake was high. As you are walking you can see temples around the lake. What was very interesting, were the restaurants that were underwater because of the lake level. Only the roofs could be seen of these restaurants. Well worth the visit.
