Mandalay – U Bein Bridge

This was my favourite, my absolute must see. The U Bein Bridge.

This stunning teak bridge runs 1.2km across the Taungthaman Lake, making it the world’s longest teak footbridge. We didn’t visit at sunset or sunrise like 90% of the iconic photos show, but I plan to go back.

It was amazing to go there and be able to walk on it. I can now tick setting foot on the U Bein Bridge off my bucket list!

Met this cutie on our walk on the bridge. Then kept bumping into her at the surrounding pubs and markets! She would shout "BYE BYE" excitedly at us every time.
