A few miles south of Mandalay city are the green forests of Sagaing Hill, once the capital. The hills are covered with hundreds of white and gold stupas. The vast area is well known as a retreat from the world for monks and visitors. Nearby is U Bein Bridge, the world’s longest teak footbridge that curves across the southern shore of large Lake Taungthaman.
