This peaceful sunset was captured about 10 kilometers south of one of Myanmar’s former capitals, Mandalay. U Bein Bridge has evolved from just a necessary path for locals to a must-see for all travellers. Watching sunset from U Bein is so much more than that; monks stroll around draped in their deep red and orange robes, silhouettes of monks riding their bikes are visible all around, the fishermen and their boats slowly move through the lake. This picture wraps up what I love about Myanmar; the natural, untouched beauty which is prevalent throughout the whole country combined with the soft and gentle nature of the locals. This picture is the Myanmar I’ll never forget.
Thanks to Mirna for sharing this lovely sunset, it makes us want to go back to Myanmar!
