U Bein Bridge

A short drive from Mandalay is the former royal capital of Amarapura, but what most people come here for is to walk the length of the 1.2-kilometer-long (0.75-mile-long) U Bein Bridge across Lake Taungthaman. Set on stilts above the water, it is reputedly the longest teak bridge in the world, and a stroll across it offers serene vistas of local farmers and fisherfolk.
