Clue: C'mon, race you. On a bike you can cover the 1,200 metres of this teakwood bridge in just a few minutes, but it's probably best to take your time, absorb the atmosphere and try not to pedal over the side. Monks cross to reach a nearby temple; students walk to and from the local university, women make their way to market. Legend tells that an entire forest was felled to construct the 1,086 pillars in the middle of the 19th century. The image was taken by James Tye, who recalls, 'To photograph it at first light I caught a moto-taxi before dawn, and at the lake persuaded a fisherman to take me out in his longtail boat. There was a clear, cloudless sky so that the horizon slowly turned magenta and then orange before the sun appeared. With no wind the water was perfectly still and, in the half-light, it was difficult to see where the bridge supports stopped and the reflection began. Moments later the sun broke over the horizon and we were passed by dozens of similar fishing boats, silently paddling under the bridge and out onto the lake to fish.' Where are you?



My Answer: U Bein Bridge, Amarapura, Near Mandalay, Myanmar

Location: Mandalay, Myanmar

U Bein Bridge is a crossing that spans the Taungthaman Lake near Amarapura in Myanmar. The 1.2-kilometre (0.75 mi) bridge was built around 1850 and is believed to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world

The bridge was built from wood reclaimed from the former royal palace in Inwa. It features 1,086 pillars that stretch out of the water
