U Bein Bridge

U Bein Bridge is located just outside of Mandalay near the ruins of the former capital, Amarapura. It is said to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world, spanning 1.2 kilometres across the Taungthamen Lake. Constructed in the early 1850s, it contains 984 teak posts and is a focal point for the local community, especially at sunset. Walk along the bridge, and a waiting boat will be waiting to take you back to the shore.
