Burma: free activities
From Gill Charlton, the Burma specialist at Telegraph Travel. Burmese like a large, blind Buddha and this lying picture is one of the biggest in the world: 65 meters long and wonderfully shaped with 108 holy icons gently marked on the sole of the heel. Here is an open cloister and in the mornings you will see friars who return with meals sponsored by native homes.
Often it is full of young friars, who after the mandatory picture of the friar in ovals windows want to get involved the few people who want to stay here. Lights are bad in some areas, so come by in the mornings with a flare. Burma's most venerated picture of the Buddha probably originates in the fourteenth centuary, although it is said by legends that it was a real reflection of Gautama Buddha in his life.
It meanders for almost a kilometer over a flat pond to a small peasant town with a cloister. Lintha is located around the promontory from the Ngapali Beach. Some years ago a Briton founded a college here. It is heartwarming to see how such a town finds its place in the contemporary age.
Lintha is situated around the promontory from the Ngapali Beach. Some of the most beautiful are along the broad alleys that lead to the boardwalk between Sule Pagoda Road and Bo Aung Gyaw Road, especially between Maha Bandoola Park and Pansodan Street. Destination on Strand Road, which leads along the water, past the British Embassy, a former maritime station, to Strand Hotels, constructed in Singapore in 1901 by the Raffles family.

Approximately 11 kilometres southwards of Mandalay, between Lake Taungthaman and the Ayeyarwady River, lies the small village of Amarapura, another former capitol of the old Myanmar empire. Besides palaces and the remains of the old building, the old part of the island has one of the most frequently visited monuments in Myanmar: the 1,200 metre long U leg lift made entirely of trek.
Constructed in 1784, the viaduct is still in good shape and has never had to be seriously repaired. The town was renamed after its former founders, a former burgomaster, and was made of over 1,000 trunks of teachwood. Some of them even contain the remains of the deserted town. The U Bein is the longest wooden deck in the whole wide area.
Particularly beloved are sundowns, as the setin' down star makes a nice skyline of the footbridge, many of which decorate a sitting-room.
