Myanmar Maw la MyineMaw la Myine Myanmar
Kyaikthanlan Pongo, from which Rudyard Kipling composed his celebrated verse "The Way to Mandalay", dates from 875 A.D., is the city's symbol. Myanmar's longest street and railway viaduct, the Thanlwin viaduct, is the region's most distinctive emblem. Stretching 11,000 ft across the Thanlwin river, it connects the southeastern part of the state with the nation's main city, Yangon.
Southeast Myanmar & Mawlamyine :
Myanmar's Mawlamyine and Southeast are places of adventures and culture for connoisseurs, off the well-trodden paths of Myanmar's treasures. Previously known as Moulmein, the city was once a significant harbour and the administration capitol of British Lower Burma. Kyaikthanlan Pongo, from which Rudyard Kipling composed his celebrated verse "The Road to Mandalay", dates from 875 A.D., is the city's symbol.
Southeast Myanmar consists of several departments in Mon State, Kayin State and the Tanintharyi region. Myanmar's third busiest town and home to one of the world's tallest lying Buddha sculptures (not to speak of the country's supposedly most spectacular sunset), Monlamyine is the former busy colonial sea port and home to the state's Mon state capitol.
A green crest overlooks the city and is dominated by a series of buddhist crypts and cloisters. Its highest building on the top of the mound is the Kyaikthanlan Paya Gold, which was erected in the ninth centuries A.D. and served as inspiring line for the opening of the celebrated verse "Mandalay" by Rudyard Kipling - "By the old Moulmein Pagode, lookin' fauly at the sea".
Further regional attractions are the famous gravity-defying Kyaiktiyo or the Golden Rock, where a towering stone balancing on a gold-plated rock and hanging over a rocky promontory. Kayin State Hpa-an is home to a web of mystical caverns that have been turned into a temple and shrine for Buddha services. All Myanmar will respond to Mount Victoria.
This is the highest summit of the Chinese state and the most visited..... Myanmar' s uncharted south coastline caught my eye and I dared to venture into the Dawei Penninsula. Would you like to know more about traveling in Myanmar?
