HD Afternoon tour of Inwa & Sunset at U Bein Bridge


| May 15, 2020

U Bein Bridge is one of the most recognisable sites in Burma, and has become an iconic image for the country. Built over 200 years ago, U Bein Bridge is a footbridge made of 1,060 teak posts and spans over 1km across the shallow Taungthaman lake. The bridge is used by locals and monks crossing between Amarapura and Taungthaman village, and the lake attracts fishermen who cast lines or, more uniquely, use their longyi (sarongs) as nets to catch fish. For a memorable experience, boats can be hired to row out into the river and see the bridge closer from the water, with the magical scenery of the sun setting in the background.
