if you wanna see ubein bridge from downtown mandalay, take a taxi for 15000 kyat 2way. The driver will wait for you for 2-3h if you want and takes you back again. Take your time and enjoy the lake at sunset!

Make sure you walk the bridge before getting on your boat. There are some bargains to be had and it's lovely just to talk to the friendly vendors. The star of the show however is the bridge from the water at sunset. Our boatman was...More

Of course you must go and judge the bridge yourself when you are in the area. I was really excited about taking a sunset image on my camera. The reality is that in November, best month to go, at sunset the Bridge is overcrowded. Yes,...More
