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.

We loved the Ubein bridge at Sunset! Went there by taxi at about 4 and started crossing the bridge by 4:45 while chatting to locals and enjoying the walk. At the other end we took a boat back at about 5:30 to enjoy the view with the sunset: best experience ever! Our "driver" took photos of us and took us... More

Beautiful teak bridge structure and awesome place to enjoy the sunrise and to take impressive photos! In early morning, also the balloons are leaving from there if somebody is interested. Going up towards the village, had a breakfast in an authentic eatery, no tourists there. Was all nice!

Lovely bridge and the sunrise effect is amazing, the visit is really worth it. Seeing the monks crossing the bridge to collect food donations is a very unique and time traveling experience.

This bridge is one of the longest wooden bridges in the world. It takes about 40 minutes to cross. It's quite charming in its simplicity - the bridge is made up of planks from a previous bridge, just held together with nails. When I went, the river was quite high - so much so that some of the shops were... More

I was dreaming about the longest wooden bridge for a long time. Once my dream come true, I was glad to be there. Don't miss the chance to take a boat trip and climb up to the bridge and walk back to the temple. View from the bridge is stunning and unforgetable.

Most tourists approach from the west, which is fine and well set up for the tourist trade. We explored around lunchtime. On the eastern side near the big Buddha you can see from the bridge is a little workshop that will show you how the hand looms are used to make scarves and longyis. The demonstration was interesting. They will... More

Good weather to walk along 1.2km. Lots of couple seating along the bridge. It wouldn't take long. 30 to 60 min enough for this place of interest.

A walk along this bridge is interesting, you see all types of locals and the structure is unique, probably more spectacular at sunset, but even during the day worth visiting.
