The most important sights in Kalaw
It was also known as Pine Land which is situated in the state of Shan. This was a favourite place during Burma's settlement. It' s cool all year round, the climate is cool and hilly, it is the only place in Myanmar where you can enjoy the best hiking in the country.
If you are visiting the Kalaw for the first trip, it may be hard, so here is a shortlist I want to give you, which you have to see in Kalaw. Trust me, the town has so many sights in the area. They are Kalaw Markt, Kalaw Railway and Hne Paya (Bamboo Pagoda).
It is possible to reach these places by renting an e-bike. Second place to go is Myin Ma Hti Cave, 10 mile from Kalaw. It' s an astonishing sight. It' my favorite place in Kalaw. Stop at the viewpoint of our Ristorante, experience the outdoors and taste the best local beers and tortillas.
The Ywar Ngan (Burmese name) is also known as the Virgin Regional and is located 50 leagues from Kalaw on the way to Ywar Ngan. Only Kalaw has such a great panoramic sight. Ywar Ngan also has many places to go, such as Main Ma Ye Tha Khin Ma Taung (Burmese name), Mya Tha Bate (Burmese name) Blaue Lagune and Kyone Htaw (Burmese name) Falls.
Then you know the places you should go to in the town of Kalaw. You can find the best hotels/motels in Kalaw on the Jovago.com.mm website.
Myanmar Travel: the best and the poorest from Yangon to Mandalay
Myanmar is an up-and-coming tourist country as 2010 has seen rapid growth in tourist activity and many are predicting that the country will see a booming tourist industry in the near-term. It' s been a few month since we leave Burma and we often talk about certain things we miss.... or never want to see again!
Here is our backward-looking travel guidebook to the best and the baddest of Burma Travel. Most of the guidebooks say they should get on and off as soon as possible, but the road catering here was fantastic and the Bierstraße was a great place to get together with local and foreign people.
NyaungShwe, the small touristic city outside Lake Inle, is the hardest place to visit. Although Yangon is the best, it is really sweating during the heats. The best and poorest food: Megsy: I loved the lettuce (even if it is coated with olive and has no beneficial effects on health), ginger lettuce, tomato lettuce and even some tealeaf lettuce, but the teasalad was a little beaten and missed so that I could see it as the best and poorest meal, according to who made it!
Surprisingly for me as a red-flowered carnivorous animal, the best meal is the mini-grill-potatos. Concerning the poorest meal, another surprise: "Mohinga". It' regarded as Burma's nationwide cuisine and it is probably the first that I hate a nationwide meal from any state. It' a seafood broth, but if you don't go to a chic place, it probably tastes like bad seafood - no cooling for most of Burma?s streetside dishes, I'm worried!
The best and the poorest beer: Megsy: Burma Dakhla Rules! Now Myanmar is my favorite Asia ale - and I've tried a great deal! Concerning the poorest ale, I concur that Dagon is down in the heap, but there's really nothing that can be compared to the Myanmar bar, so they're all quite poor.
Greatest and poorest attraction: The worse, um.... The fact that they are still promoting the Jumping Cat Monastery at Inle Lake when the cat no longer jumps was a big disappointment. I' d say the best thing to do is Mount Popa. It' the greatest thing in Burma, but once you've seen one of them, you've seen them all.... If you loved them or are a Buddhist, you might like it more, but for us adventurous and excited enthusiasts it gets old.
Mahabandoola in Yangon is the best and the worse one. Best of all, it was one we couldn't stick with because it was just over our budgets. The Grace II also in Pyin oo Lwin is the lowest value we have been at. Well, not the worse, just the worse for $20-$25.
My full report on Grace Hotel II can be found here. The best and poorest overall experience: The Thingyan Festival is one of the best things I've ever experienced on a trip, turning the roads into a huge 3 day war! The worse: P.S. Locating places on the street that require vaccinations againstbies is an interesting and lengthy adventure, especially if you need five over the period of about 2 month!
Luckily I wasn't bit by a bull, so I thought the 3-day motorcycle trekking was the best in Myanmar. You' ll have the adventures of crossing some of the worlds toughest streets and living with villagers in the hills - which is oddly technical, although the government seems to be turning a blind eye in this area.
They' re genuine humans and the area is frequented by very few visitors - we haven't seen another visitor for 3 whole orchestras! The worse: This is not only a poor Myanmar trip, it's also one of my top 5 most difficult travelling adventures of alltimes! Fractured air conditioning, miniscule coach seats, curvy streets at high speeds that you actually toss from your highchair.
Would you like to travel to Myanmar but are not sure if you can travel alone? Intrepid Travel is recommended - they have some great routes to this area. Myanmar we liked so much that we even written a script about it.
