interesting but very crowded

It's worth seeing but be prepared for lots of people, noise, a lot of people flogging stuff and quite a lot of trash on the ground. Sunset is beautiful.

First it was planned to watch the sunset at Mandalay Hill but a good tip made me change the plan! It worth it, it was something breathtaking to watch the sunset from one of the various points available! the only negative point all places be croweded of people looking for the best pic!!

There are some pretty scenes from this bridge and some excellent photo opportunities, however, it was not the sound structure we had imaged from the publicity. Be prepared to put up with the hawkers who will attach themselves to you for the whole walk if you encourage them in any way.

Myanmar has been discovered. Convenient sites like the teak bridge host thousands of visitors daily. Attending this influx are all the problems of protecting a site's natural attraction from the people who have come to see it. At U Bein Bridge the tourist authority is doing a lousy job. The place is packed with selfie snapping tourists pushing and crowding... More

We went to visit U Bein Bridge in 2016. It was part of a whole day visiting some of the ancient cities around Mandalay. It was worth a visit just to walk across and talk to some of the locals. There is a village to visit on the other side of the bridge. Worth a visit as part of a... More

Does not look like all the arty sunset photos. There is rubbish and dogs everywhere which really spoils the ambience

the impression of serenity you get when looking at photos of monks crossing the bridge at sunset is only a part of the current picture. nowadays, what is cropped out of all these 'romantic' photos are the loads of tourists on small boats near the bridge, loads of people on the bridge itself, loads of people on the plastic-riddled shore,...

We cycled from Mandalay and whilst it was nice to view and walk on the bridge, the trip there was nice through the countryside.

The glow of sunset behind the U Bein Bridge of stilts with silhouettes of walking monks, backpackers, and tourists plus the chaos of tourist boats is a perfect contradiction between peace and frenzy. Once the many, agitated boats adjust positions and remain stationary, the peace of the sunset is inviting. The feeling of taking time to really look at what... More
