"Take a boat at U Bein Bridge" River Travel Tip by albaaust

River Travel, Mandalay: 8 reviews and 26 photos

  The boatsman paddling hard in the heat
by albaaust

When you go to Amarpura and U Bein Bridge there are a number of boatsmen who will offer to take you across the river. In the heat they work pretty hard so I would recommend that you walk across the bridge one way and catch a boat the other.

Cost US$2.50

Type: Ship/Boat

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
