Every sunset, there will be people coming and going on U Bein Bridge, you can take a walk on U Bein Bridge before sunset. There are six pavilions at the head of the bridge, the middle of the bridge and the tail of the bridge, which symbolize the "Six Harmonies" of Buddhism. It is said that when the locals are in love, they will travel thousands of miles to climb the bridge, praying for the eternal preservation of these six spirits of harmony and mutual respect, so that the love will last longer. If you are tired of walking, there are places selling palm juice, coconut juice and other drinks under the bridge, as well as small handicrafts. When the sun sets in the west, U Bein Bridge is dyed orange by the afterglow of the setting sun, and the silhouette of dead trees by the lake is very meaningful.

Many tourists will take wooden boats to cruise the lake, watch the sunset from a distance, and take pictures of the classic U Bein Bridge at dusk.

    Irrawaddy River

    39 Reviews
    97.3km from downtown
    "Fascinating. I don't remember how many stops we stopped but it should be 14 to 15. Most stops are in the local village and the road is too long to go into detail. The locals are very friendly, honest and not aggressive at all. There is no sign of army personnel other than the tourist police who help you cross the road. There are many Buddhist temples. The crew and staff on board (Samassa RV) were excellent. I couldn't praise them enough no matter how much. Many people just mentioned their names"
