An amazing bridge in it's own right but a truly fantastic location to watch the sunset. Grab a boat and truly sit and gape! The boatmen are well organised and arrange themselves in order that everyone gets an uninterrupted view of the setting sun. A...More

Jan 20 From the airport we stopped by the U Bein Bridge, which looks more like a long, long pier than a bridge. The wooden planks are supported by old timbers taken from a dismantled palace centuries ago. Many of the timbers are in bad...More

It's just an old bridge! I have heard this comment so many times throughout my trip to Myanmar, I'm glad it didn't put me off the experience because this old bridge is fascinating at sun set. Although It does get packed with tourists and the...More

Amazing teak bridge with splendid view. It was a pleasure to spend time there. The only problem is that there are too many hawkers around.

I visited this long, wonderful, teak bridge 15 years ago, when there were few tourists and there were still bicycles and motorbikes passing along. Now the old atmosphere has largely gone, as there are crowds of local and foreign tourists walking along it. The clean...More

Worth a stop if you are headed to or from the airport. We went on a late Saturday morning and it was quite crowded, even a bit scary on a bridge with no sides or hand rails. Still, it's a unique experience walking along this...More

Has to be done but the least serene sunset you will ever experience! Lovely spot for a beer though. Walk over the bridge to the other side of the car park but get there an hour before sunset to secure the perfect spot for you.

At this point there is no point in saving - rent a boat and watch the bridge and sunset at the same time - you will have some of the most beautiful pictures ever taken !!

Bit of a scary walk along the bridge and then onto our boats on the river to view the bridge at sunset. Pandaw turned up with campari cocktails for us - yet another little surprise from them!

Per la visita al tramonto in barca occorre prenotare in anticipo o si affitta la barca sul momento? Quanto costa? Must you book the boat ride in advance or can you rent on the spot? How much does it cost?
