The World’s Longest Teak Bridge

By Linda Tancs

In Myanmar’s ancient capital Amarapura you’ll find the expected ruins of the palace and tombs of old kings.  But what survives in the old capital is even more stunning:  a teak bridge spanning 1.2 kilometers.  The longest teak bridge, U Bein Bridge was built from pieces of the city’s dismantled teak palace when the capital moved to Mandalay.  Enjoy the view at sunset.
