Amarapura – the Teak bridge

One of the most famous sight of Burma is the 1.2 km long teak bridge in Amarapura. Built 200 years ago, it links two shores of the Lakes and his famous for monks transiting from the monasteries to the nearby villages. I am sure that some of you have previously seen pictures of monks walking over the bridge under the shade of their umbrellas. This being said, there are also interesting sights around the bridge and I was even amazed to discover the existence of duck sheperds. So many surprises in Myanmar.  (click on pictures for high res)
