U Bein Bridge

The U Bein bridge, which crosses Thaungthaman Lake near Amarapura, is one of the most iconic and well-known sites in Myanmar. It is used on the cover of both Amitav Ghosh's The Glass Palace and U Thant Myint's The River of Lost Footsteps: A Personal History of Burma and is said to be the oldest and longest teak (Tectona grandis L.f.) bridge in the world.  Wonderful place to watch the sun go down (thx, Saw Htun).
