Myanmar experience : U Bein bridge

View of the famous U Bein bridge at sunset, Amarapura, Myanmar

 

The U-Bein's Bridge is a 1.2 km wooden footbridge - the world's longest teak bridge - built by the mayor U Bein salvaging the unwanted teak columns from the old palace during the move to Mandalay.

It runs across the Taungthaman Lake and it well over 200 years old.
