Impressions of Burma
I’ve been back from Burma now for just over a month and still finding myself dreaming about the things that I learnt, the people that I met and the images that I saw!
It’s hard to pick out the highlights on this trip...
Nightfall at Shedagon Pagoda? The temples of Bagan? Boating on Inle Lake? The people of Burma?
In Yangon (Rangoon) … The 90 metre golden stupa (Shwedagon Pagoda) dazzles in the sun, then as the sun falls, find the right corner and watch the stupa come alive under the lights and dark sky's. The stupa twinkles with 5500 diamonds and hundreds of other precious gems
There is so much life on Inle lake to enjoy from your longboat. From the leg rowers to the weed pullers, the floating market and the vast array of industry and crafts. Floating around the villages you get a real feel of the Venice of Asia.
Our days in Mandalay were full and varied. Spending time walking through the street and watching the hustle and bustle of the local markets to the locals relaxing on the side of the road drinking gree tea. Every corner you turned was another smiling face. Traveling by river to the World Archaeological site of Mingun, with the world's largest uncracked bell and glistening white stupa. There is so much to see in Mandalay.
At Taugngthaman lake you can take in the amazing sight of the teak foot bridge, spanning 1.2 km’s, taking to the water you can get the full span of the bridge and watch the locals cross to and fro or walk the whole way across the to the local village. Many of the local girls wating to talk as they want to try out their English!
In Bagan there is so much to see, each pagoda offering something different, and that iconic picture that you always see of hundreds of pagodas as far as the eye can see. Travelling by horse and cart you see so much more, stopping to see the sun set from one of the pagodos where you can climb to the top!
Its definatley one to add to your list and sooner rather than later!
