    Riding a boat in Taungthaman


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     NyoThitNge was visiting the Mandalay Division, Myanmar, in September 2011, where he photographs boats by the U Bain Bridge. He says most villagers use boats daily to travel through the lake as a way to commute to work. 'It is their long time tradition, and so many tourists like to enjoy that as a recreation,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    The best time to travel to U Bain Bridge (U Pain Bridge) is in the afternoon. The view of sunset from and around the bridge is perhaps the most beautiful scene around Mandalay. The weather is also cooler and more comfortable, with cool light breeze blowing over the scerene lake. You can sit on the river bank of Taungthaman Lake, sipping beer with fried shrimps and fishes freshly caught from the lake. Then, take a boat ride along Taungthaman Lake. Walk along the bridge until the end, and meet the local villagers coming back from work to their villages on the other side of the Lake. You will realize this is the best place in Mandalay.
