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

U Bein bridge offers a different experience during Summer. Although there're no waters due to the hot season, you are still able to capture very nice pictures of the bridge and its surroundings, as well as to walk down to the "dry" river bed and...More

The lake has no water in dry season so it’s not too amazing for me. You should try to visit it at rain season where all around are water, I only see it in others’ pictures though.

U Bein Bridge itself is an incredible structure and a fantastic place to take photos and go for a short walk. The one thing that currently ruins it is that the area surrounding it has become increasingly busy and run down over time with a...More

Highly over rated. As part of our tour we went out on gondolas on the lake to photograph the bridge at sunset, unfortunatly during low water season the coaches park under the bridge and where the sun sets is directly overhead which does spoil the...More

On every tour itinerary around Mandalay this bridge is described as a top attraction??!! I maybe don't understand that fuss, but it's just a bridge. OK, it is almost 200y old, made of around 1000 teak pillars, but that's it. Nothing spectacular. Every tour operator...More

We went there as strongly suggested to. Our initial reluctance came from the fact it requires a long drive to get there. But I have to admit, there is something special about that bridge. And I don't really know what. We saw mostly local people...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
