This is a great way to enjoy an afternoon: cycling through the quiet countryside and the ruins of the Court of Ava before seeing the sun set on an intriguing piece of history: U-Bein bridge.

You will be picked up from your hotel in Mandalay between 12.30pm-1.30pm depending on the timing of sunset and then drive south from Mandalay to get out of the traffic. As the sprawl lessens, we find ourselves in the dry zone where the inhabitants can sustain an agricultural livelihood thanks to ancient canals.

You will start the bike ride and take a leisurely ride through farmland and villages where locals will be pleasantly surprised to see you and call out with greetings. Along the way you will stop by the hometown of the Mayor U Bein after whom the bridge is named. Also learn more about a Muslim community that has lived here for the last two hundred years. You will have the opportunity to explore the shady paths through the ancient capital of Ava and finish our ride at U Bein Bridge.

U Bein Bridge spans 1.2 km and was reportedly built by Mayor U Bein from salvaged teak wood that was left behind in the move of the capital from Amarapura to Mandalay in 1859. Although the bridge has been repaired in the past, the pillars are still the original wood. After relaxing in the last light of the day, you will be taken back to your hotel in Mandalay arriving by 7:30pm.
