Amarapura, the city of immortals, had been the capital for two Burmese dynasties. What are left of its political legacy are the ruins of Amarapura Palace and the tombs of King Bagyidaw and King Bodawpaya which visitors can view. However, you will find the main attraction here to be U Pein Bridge, the longest teak bridge in the world. This 200 year old structure extends 1.2 km long over the Taungthaman Lake. Take a stroll down this landmark and stop by the shops, art galleries, and food outlets available at both ends of the bridge.
