This week’s #FriFotos theme is BRIDGES — and this one’s a doozy. U Pain (or U Bein) was built well over 200 years ago out of teak logs to connect the two banks of the Taungthaman Lake with the town of Amarapura in Myanmar (Burma). Visitors to Mandalay can take a break from dusty, noisy city life by taking a short taxi ride to see the sun set from this remarkable bridge. But you’d better have good balance — there are no handrails!
#FriFotos is a weekly themed Twitter chat founded by @EpsteinTravels, @TravelDesigned and @CharlesYap where travelers share their favorite pics. Search #FriFotos on Twitter to see the latest submissions or tweet one of your own.
