Spanning the width of the Taungthaman Lake, this winding 1.2km marvel is 200 years old but still sturdy (a testament to the strength of the teak used in its construction).

U Bein's Bridge looks marvelous at sunset  <span style='white-space:nowrap;'><img src='http://www.guidegecko.com/images/spyglass1.png' align='texttop' /> Click to enlarge</span>

Pictures of monks crossing it are almost a stock image of a visit to Myanmar.

It is best to visit around sunset when the setting sun frames the bridge and the trees that stand in the lake.
