You can just walk across the bridge and back again. However I would suggest that you hire a boat and get taken out to the far side of the bridge. The boatman will take you under... read more

We hired a car and driver for $35 US for the entire day and visited a number of pagodas, temples, etc. before ending our day at U Bein Bridge. We walked half way on the bridge and went down the stairs to the rest area and enjoyed a beer and glass of wine while watching the beautiful sunset with hundreds... More

This place gets really busy but the boat ride out into the lake is quite fun and crowded. All the smoke from burning in the distance may bother some if your sensitive to that. We stayed and had a meal at the shore which was great. Enjoy !!

We came here in the early evening for the sunset which was truely stunning but there were hundreds of other people here too, who also wanted to take advantage of the sunset. Fortunately our guide suggested we hire a boat to witness the sun going down from the water which was a great idea and we got some fantastic photos.... More

You can just walk across the bridge and back again. However I would suggest that you hire a boat and get taken out to the far side of the bridge. The boatman will take you under the bridge before dropping you off at the other side. Then you can walk back across the bridge so you see it from two... More

Overrated – yes the bridge is quite long and the walk is pleasant but there is a lot of garbage in the water and around. Water level was low and the view form bridge was average. Good thing – there were not so many tourist and we can explore the site without difficulties. If you are not really into bridges... More

Here I was going with my friends. The amazing teak bridge attracts us to walk till the end of the bridge. And the story said that if couple walks together through the bridge till the end, their love still longer. There some of Myanmar's culture can be seen and the pretty sunset can be experience.

We had read about this bridge and it was a great place for sunset, so it was added to the end of a long day of sightseeing. Unfortunately, everyone reads this same thing and everyone showed up. Literally, bus loads. And it's packed with vendors all around the bridge and on the bridge. You can barely walk its so crowded,... More

We visited this bridge early in the day so there were not too many tourists during our visit. For those of us who come from countries where Health & Safety is applied to excess, it was refreshing to find somewhere that appreciated most people have some common sense and don't need to be instructed how to walk across a bridge...
