Impressive but so so....

Knew I had to visit to take photos of the bridge when I arrived in Mandalay. I'll admit it was the only thing I wanted to shoot while here. While it's a stunning piece of history... read more

U Bein Bridge is only a bridge, but it really is soooo much more. Here you'll see average Myanmar folk going about their daily business (plus a few tourists!) Made from teak it really is one of the iconic images of Myanmar.

Our peaceful boat trip to view the this picturesque teak bridge at sunset was a real highlight of our stay in Mandalay. Of course, everyone else wants to do the same, but there is quite a festive air as the boatmen pull on their oars to line everyone up to get the best shot of the sun going down behind... More

Knew I had to visit to take photos of the bridge when I arrived in Mandalay. I'll admit it was the only thing I wanted to shoot while here. While it's a stunning piece of history I did find it somewhat overrated. Be prepared to see loads of other tourists during the day and at sunset. For less tourists go... More

Great pleasure to walk this long bridge across a shallow river. Farmers plow the shores with oxen and beautiful traditional fishing boats are used. Lovely site!

Some people just want to get from one place to another. U Bein Bridge on the other hand, is best appreciated if you were to take a slow stroll, feel the breeze and soak up the atmosphere around you. It rained that afternoon so we did not get that brilliant sunset we hoped for although the rain has stopped. Yet,... More

Even tough there was a lot of people there the brigde was still amazing. It was so beautiful in the sunligt and especially when the sun went down. Take a walk on the bridge - the view is breathtaking! Then head down to find a nice spot to see the sunset

We had this as a must see and it did not disappoint, the weather was bad with rain about all day so sadly no sunset but well worth the walk. It is very slippery in the wet so take care. Serenely peaceful and lots to see and photograph. At about the half way point we saw a young lady fully... More

We did a full day of driving around temples and sites in Mandalay's suburbs and this was perhaps the only thing really worth seeing - in fact, I would recommend anybody visiting Mandalay to skip most of the sightseeing to the suburban religious sites since most of them are new builds and there are much nicer examples in pretty much...

As to flight, we could not expect splendid sunset on the Bridge. But still great, I hired a small flat-bottomed boat which swims across the lake. Luckily, the other side off the Lake is a occasional nats festival and many locals rampaging everywhere, it quite bustling, hassling truly, but quite local. My old boatman was quite friendly and quite negotiative,... More
