Even in the rainy season we caught a spectacular sunset. Our guide suggested walking out to the middle of the bridge where he joined us with a rented boat from which we sat to watch the sun go down. This presented plenty of good photo...More

Very pretty wooden bridge with epic views. Overrun with tourists for sunset, I would advise going for sunrise instead. I still very much enjoyed the sunset there though. Lots of locals there too having fun in the water

Our 3rd visit in a decade to this special place. Some, but not many westerners but tourists from all around Asia. It was hot in April just prior to the monsoon season so the river was very low. Enough water though to cross by row...More

A long wooden bridge — it gets a little scary to walk across because of the skits between planks! Probably not great for little kids because there are no railings. It is typically crowded with tourists, locals, and monks. Beautiful at sunset. You can also...More

來緬甸原因,最希望能捕捉到不同城鎮的日出及日落. 當中,當然包括已入了CNN 10大日落景點之一的U Bein Bridge. U Bein Bridge距離Myanmar市中心約1小時車桯,來緬甸之前,我search不同的tour,如想來到這裏,要約HKD$500 一天Day tour.這一刻的我,打算來到之後再找司機専來這裏了. 這天,Hostel的職員幫我安排了一個電單車司機,讓我可以背包客價錢來到這裏欣賞這壯觀日落.感恩!!!

This totally deserves its high ranking spot as far as tourist attraction! The world’s longest team footbridge offers amazing views on the Taungthaman Lake, especially on a sunny day! I suggest you go for a drink/beer at “Dimple Restaurant” right next to the bridge entrance....More

This is possibly the number 1 attraction in Mandalay. Apparently it's the world's longest timber bridge, 2.2 kms. Fortunately there are several places along the way where you can sit and also buy watermelon. The bridge is quite narrow and care is required, especially for...More

1 Raining season is very difficult to travel in Mandalay region. But you can touch fresh air because it's not dusty. 2. You can take the picture on boats and this bridge. 3. You can watch a beautiful sunset.

This place was a big highlight for me in Mandalay, in Burma even. We got there in time for sunset for some nice golden hour pictures and we even strolled on the bridge ourselves. It was so pretty to photograph from below and also from...More

Hi Bunny Most of the people go there from mandalay as only $5 by taxi and not much to do at the U Being Bridge on top of the bridge itself and a nice monk's monastery where you can see local donors offering food to monks. so... More
