One of Myanmar's most photographed sites is not just nice to look at—there's history here, too. The oldest (and longest) teak footbridge in the world, U Bein is made from the remains of a former royal palace. The 0.75-mile bridge curves slightly over Taungthaman Lake, and is most popular at sunset. Want to avoid the throngs of tourists? Try just after sunrise, when hundreds of villagers and monks use it to commute by foot.
