  • Biking BaganBeing sick was no motivation to see sunrise so we just slept in and grabbed breakfast at the hotel. We managed to check out of our first hotel without issue and walked down to the new place that we'd scouted Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Jul 23, 2016
  • Myanmar (Burma), Pure Gold I'm hoping it's not a long ride as we sink into the hollow back seat of the so-called taxi, but I'm quickly distracted by the fact that the driver is on the right AND we're also driving Posted by SpiceChronicles in The Spice Chronicles | Jul 2, 2016
  • Bagan TemplesAfter lunch, we were off on bikes to explore Bagan, a temple wonderland. This was largest concentration of Buddhist temples, stupas, payas and ruins in the world, many dating from the 11th to 13th centuries. Bagan's history began in the Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Jun 30, 2016
  • Journey Hpa An to BaganOur bus to Yangon left at a reasonable time of 9 a.m. and left us enough time for a bakery breakfast of tasty carrot cake, cheese cake, puri and potato curry, and banana pancakes. The whole feast was less than Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Jun 27, 2016
  • Myanmar - Summary It was only 14 days we had to explore this huge country. As the time was a bit short and we had a lot of distance to cover, sights to see and pagodas to visit, we only went to the Posted by cjfvdk in Down Under and Around | Jun 21, 2016
  • The long road to MandalayAfter Christophe talked Edda into agreeing to take the train from Inle to Mandalay, we had about 12h of scenic train travel in front of us. We had read that the trains are rather poor quality, they shake, jump over Posted by cjfvdk in Down Under and Around | Jun 21, 2016
  • Mount ZwegabinThe twenty four hour loud speaker voices from the temples had us up far before our 7 a.m. tuktuk to Mount Zwegabin. We had some taro cookies for breakfast and a few oranges. On our tour, there was a woman Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Jun 20, 2016
  • Lake Inle - Myanmar It’s possible to do a hike of 2-3 days to Inle from Kalaw and other nearby towns, but as we were short of time and partly because of the rainy weather, we just took the bus. When we arrived, Christophe Posted by cjfvdk in Down Under and Around | Jun 19, 2016
  • Bagan - MyanmarWe arrived with the night bus from Yangon and were welcomed by our guest house with a nice breakfast :) The road was a bit bumpier than we had expected, so we didn’t get much sleep. However, after filling up Posted by cjfvdk in Down Under and Around | Jun 16, 2016
  • Yangon - Myanmar We spent one more night on the Thai side of the river, which was cheaper than staying on the Myanmar side. We walked around a bit, it was very rainy, and it’s a different town than Chiang Mai. There were Posted by cjfvdk in Down Under and Around | Jun 14, 2016
  • Amazing Hpa An tour: caves, temples and batsWe managed to sneak in breakfast before our early tour left. I had rice and lentils, similar to what I'd gotten in Yangon, but with less flavour. Ryan had some toast. We also had what was left of our tasty Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Jun 12, 2016
  • Hpa AnWe ventured down to the Cinderella Hotel again for a bit of a brunch. Ryan had Chicken Kinbao and I had Thai fried rice. Sadly neither could hold a candle to last night's meal but they did look quite fancy. Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Jun 11, 2016
  • Bilu Kyun, Ogre IslandWe walked over to Breeze Guesthouse to see if there'd be any breakfast served before the tour. They sent us off to the familiar grandmother, grandfather restaurant for the same thing we'd had yesterday. At least my stomach was familiar Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Jun 10, 2016
  • MawlamyineI had a bit more energy in the morning and my appetite came back. We went looking for another place to eat but ended back up at the Grandfather Grandmother restaurant on the river again. I attempted to eat the Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Jun 9, 2016
  • Food Poisoning and arriving in MawlamyineFrom night until morning, I was sprinting from our bed to the squatters as whatever sketchy substance I consumed wreaked havoc on my stomach. As luck would have it, the power went out too. I tossed and turned to the Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | May 31, 2016
  • MyanmarThis week I went to Mandalay, Bagan, and Inle Lake in Myanmar. It was really interesting to visit Myanmar again after seeing Yangon Myanmar on Semester at Sea. The first time I was there I could only compare Myanmar to Posted by juliaaugh in Thailand 2016 | May 28, 2016
  • Golden RockWe woke up bright and early for our 5:30 European breakfast. I put back a juice that I really shouldn't have considering we'd be on the bus so soon. Eggs and toast were good though. Our cab driver upped the Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | May 23, 2016
  • Synagogues and artWe had seen most of our big sights the previous day. There was still a synagogue, art gallery, food and some book stores to enjoy. Being too tuckered out to order a Myanmar breakfast last night, we were stuck with Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | May 15, 2016
  • Yangon In the morning, I woke up early to Skype the bank with little success. Then I tried the guesthouse computers and the software was too outdated to run the program. Ryan and I had the Myanmar breakfasts while I kept Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | May 3, 2016
  • Arriving in YangonIn the morning, we took full advantage of the noon check out. I even got to Skype with my mom before we packed up really quick. We went out for a street breakfast: rice cakes, eggs and a banana cake. Posted by Sarah.M in Explore | Apr 14, 2016

  • The journey through the commercial hub of MyanmarMy first visit to Mynmar was when I travelled to the lesser known small border town of Tachileik slightly more than 5 years ago.
