At 1.2 km long U Bein Bridge is the longest teak bridge in the world. The bridge crosses over a shallow lake at Amarapura (now a suburb of Mandalay), which was the former capital of Burma.
Most guides recommend coming out in the evening to catch the bridge at sunset. I was leaving that day so I made do with a morning visit. The bridge was streaming with school kids making their daily crossing, and whenever you have a big camera hanging around your neck there are always requests for photos.
