Built around 1850 and believed to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world, this historically valuable monument is slowly decaying. And the repairs are made amateurish.

I didn't really see the attraction of walking with hundreds of people on a rickety bridge, even if it is the longest footbridge in the world. We were taken there to see the sunset, but it's only interesting if you're in a boat to see the bridge against the sun, otherwise it's just countryside (which is nice enough). I have... More

The bridge itself is just a long teak bridge that you can walk on. The beauty is of it against the sunset. To do this, you have to take a boat out to view it. Absolutely gorgeous. The boat was provided with the private tour that we had. I was told that it is difficult to just walk up and... More

Yes its nice, but that is all. If you in the area and have time, visit and walk part of it. That more than that.

Don't miss this amazing historical teak bridge and the surrounding scenery on the river bank! Pre-wedding photo shoots are popular- saw x3 the evening I was there.

Hire a motorbike taxi for whole day trip because of this place. South from Mandalay, and people coming here mostly is for sunset. Boat hire is available, and most of the travel groups will arrange for their clients. A nice photo can be taken during boat ride but it is not necessary since you can take the photo at the... More

Really special to watch the bridge emerge from the dark at sunrise, relaxing start to the day and perfect to see the silhouettes of the monks passing in the morning, around 30 minutes from the Mandalay city (at that time of the morning when there is no traffic!)

Oldest bridge w an interesting history! Should come here during sunset! The scenery is just wonderful. Don't be fooled by the Burmese who sell keychains/necklace and bracelet by some sort of watermelon seeds. But they're not watermelon seeds..

The most exciting for us was the trip to get there, rent a moped and take the small off roads. The bridge it self is probably coolest at sunset. But still a nice place and cool surroundings!
