We caught the train from Hsipaw to Pyin oo Lwin. We splurged on the upper class ticket ! The tickets are only a few dollars. The trip was much more pleasant than we were expecting. The seats had new covers on them. They even reclined!...More
Awesome experience. Recommend to everyone at sundown. Really fun to see the locals and the beautiful surrounding area. Keep in mind that the bridge does not have any side rails so you could definitely fall off. But I guess that adds to the excitement ;)....More
Went there in December, early in the morning. Not many people present.
The best viewpoint (for pictures) is on the right side of the bridge, at the border of the lake. You can get there by walking under the bridge till there.

Especially at sun set there are huge crowds visiting the bridge. Not only (Asian and Australian) tourists, but also local people take the chance of taking selfies or photos of the lake and the setting sun.
The bridge goes right through the middle of a...More
We visited U Bein bridge in early Jan and were awed by the sunset colours with the water & bridge in the background. The sunset is best viewed from below the bridge. The area is a little dirty, but that’s to be expected given it’s...More
This unique bridge is one of the places you must visit in Amarapura. The time to visit: sunset. There is no need to hire a boat to take you out onto the river. For the best sunset views walk down and a bit along the...More
Absolutely beautiful sight at sunset. Definitely worth the 30 minute trip south of town to catch the sunset silloete.
We did not bother with the small boat as the tide was pretty low and the crowds around the boats were a little intimidating.
The bridge is so crowded with tour buses and tourists now that you can barely enjoy it. Under the bridge all buses park there, plus trashes are everywhere with mosquitoes. I spent 30 mins there and took some ok photos. Still worth the visit if...More
This bridge was named “U Bein” after a Mayor who had it built in 19th century, connecting Innwa (aka Ava) and Amarapura township between Taungthaman Lake. It is the oldest teakwood bridge in the world (about 168 year-old). The walks along the lakeside can be...More

Most of the people go there from mandalay as only $5 by taxi and not much to do at the U Being Bridge on top of the bridge itself and a nice monk's monastery where you can see local donors offering food to monks. so I wouldn't be worried if you can't find a hotel too close to the bridge. On agoda or booking com you'll find all you need. Good luck !
