Myanmar, the beautiful

Or, as the poster at the airport states, Golden Myanmar.

Except for slums, there are also some things that can attract attention and make an impression.

So, why Myanmar was called “golden”. Outside of Yangon there are two golden pagodas. One is rather small,

IMG_0072 IMG_0085 IMG_0130 IMG_0114Lots of guides provide tours in Shwedagon, but these tours are no use because guides’ English is even worse than mine.

Another pagoda is located in the centre of Yangon and is called Sule Pagoda. It is highlighted at night, so it looks nice at any time.

IMG_9896Apart from “golden” pagodas, there is also “golden” restaurant.

IMG_0284OK, enough with gold. Near Sule Pagoda there is a nice national independency monument (which photo I’ve accidentaly lost) in a nice park. Right there, there’s one of official buildings – a rare case of Myanmar building that looks good.

    1. That’s true. As of now, there are not so much tourists in Myanmar, but maybe in 10 years if will be as popular as Cambodia.

      Personally, I don’t mind getting back in Myanmar in a year or two because there is so much interesting things to see, and I’ve only managed to visit Yangon.

  2. What beautiful photos! Thanks for sharing them. Since I at a point in my life where I won’t be doing anymore travel, I greatly appreciate the second-hand experiences that people like you afford people like me! 🙂
