Amarapura
This town is best known for the U Bein bridge. In the mid 1800s, Mayor U Bein organized this bridge's construction. Known as one of the longest wooden footbridges in the world, the U Bein stretches almost 4,000 feet (1.2 km) long and is made from teak that was reclaimed from the Royal Palace. This 200-year-old bridge is a hive of activity, especially as people travel to and from work each day. Sunset is a wonderful time to visit; see the bridge and its passers-by in silhouette, surrounded by the sun's brilliant colors.

Amarapura is also celebrated for its sumptuous handmade silk. Even today, many people in Myanmar wear longyi -- a traditional Burmese costume made of silk -- on a daily basis. Most of these garments are still made in Amarapura, and as you explore the town, you can discover workshops where these beautiful silks and textiles are produced.

Ms. Giovanna Corti


"Fantastic experience, very well organized in every detail. Vietman is not rich of historical sites, but a country that entertain the visitor with all aspects of their culture. More than a tour it has been a holiday. I enjoyed a lot entertainment as painting mask and cooking lessons."
