Most of the travelers familiar with The Bridge over The River Kwai.
I’d like to introduce about very beautiful wooden bridge crosses over Taung Tha Man lake which is situated at Amarapura near Mandalay. The name of the bridge is U Bein bridge which is famous as the longest wooden bridge in the world. When you come to Mandalay, you shouldn’t miss to visit sunset time from U Bein Bridge.
Amarapura is one of the ancient capitals of Myanmar before Mandalay not very far from Mandalay. Amarapura means immortal city. In central Myanmar, during raining season, always happened water flood of the Ayeyarwaddy River. At such time, Taung Tha Man lake cut communication with Amarapura and surrounding villages. Pedlars and hawkers have to take risk crossing the rough lake with their little boats. In the year 1849, U Pein who was a high ranking clerk, got idea to build the bridge across the lake.
The construction began in 1849 and completed in 1851, it took only two years.There are 1086 wooden post and 4 wooden pavilions (rest houses for leisure) on the bridge.
The bridge indeed is romantic, being the longest wooden bridge in the world, loving couples make appointment on the bridge, people from near city have picnic near the bridge.
In any time of the year, U Pein bridge attracts visitors from far and near. Nowadays, you can also enjoy sunset sight seeing by local boat.
Dear visitors pray do not miss the romance of the Bridge over the Lake Taung Tha Man.
