U Bein is a 1,200m long wooden bridge spanning Taungthaman Lake in the ancient capital of Amarapura, Myanmar. This is also the longest and oldest teak bridge in the world. And it is also voted as one of the most beautiful places to watch the sunset in the world.
From the mid-1800s, the bridge was built of teak used from ancient royal palaces, a total length of 1.2 km, consisting of over 1,000 pillars and thousands of planks.
Every afternoon, this place is crowded with tourists and locals to watch the sunset on the river.
Sitting here, you can easily observe and feel the peaceful life of the local people. This is considered a culture that is unique in Myanmar.
