"Visit Mandalay. In Amarapura..." Myanmar (Burma) Favorite Tip by Volare

Myanmar (Burma) General: 190 reviews and 207 photos


Favorite thing: Visit Mandalay. In Amarapura you can also visit the U-Bein teak bridge. It was build in 1782 when Amarapura was the royal capital (XVIII and XIX centuries). Nowadays the more than 1 Km long bridge (the longest made of teak in the world) and the lake Taungthaman that crosses have become a leisure place for people comming from Mandalay. Basically you can enjoy nice scenary there.
