Other Secret Places
Get a wonderful birds eye view of the city and surrounding area, which is spectacular at sunset. The walk up the 250 metre hill will take about 30 minutes however it is possible to drive part of the way for those that are less able as not to miss out.
U Bein Bridge
This bridge is the longest teak foot bridge in the word with it measuring 1,300 yards from start to finish. You can’t visit Mandalay without going to see the bridge. However we strongly suggest that you stay longer and take your time to walk the bridge, take photos, make friends and talk to the love able locals. Again the best time to is before and during sunset for that simply magical Burmese feeling.
