BT BORN restaurant is a really nice restaurant near Ubein bridge. In the middle of all the small dark restaurants in front of the lake it is an oasis. The food was really really good (many kind of dishes on the menu), the place is sweet and the staff treated us perfectly. They just opened and really worth the visit!... More

Its an old bridge in teak, with big trunks standing to support it. I did it several years ago, and the walking at the end of afternoon is a very pleasant and quiet experiment. This year unfortunately, the water was very high, nearly at the level of the bridge. We took a boat to see it but we could only... More

If you find yourself in Mandalay with a couple of hours to kill, try to visit the bridge around sunset . . . everybody else will! Be careful though, some of those Buddhist monks are not really monks but thieves that have discovered that dressing as monks causes their prey to believe they are not a threat. Just leave your...

This wooden bridge is one of the most memorable places I have been to in Myanmar. An incredible feat of architecture, this bridge is perfect to spend a beautiful evening either with your family or friends. A nice sunset point. You can either rent a boat or simply just walk from one end to the other on the bridge. A... More

Definitely walk the full length.... It is beautiful and I am pretty sure sunset or sunrise would be very special. We went around 11am and it wasn't too busy.

Beautiful to visit during sunset. Take a walk across the bridge then go down the ladder to explore the activities on the ground. You can even talk to locals picking tulip bulbs. Take a boat ride. Drink a beer or coconut juice while watching the sun set in the horizon.

We were looking forward visiting the bridge, but it was closed so we couldn't enter it. Making pictures of it is very difficult because of all the shops which block the view. For us a real disappointment.

I would recommend you to come during the early morning or late afternoon for sun rise or sun set moment. It's romantic and beautiful with the cold breeze especially in winter time! Try to avoid raining season as it always flooded from Ayarwady River

We look a look at this attraction during the day as we couldn't go at sunset because it was raining. There were so many little shops and stalls selling trinkets to tourists.
