Soe Brothers Guesthouse Hpa an Myanmar

Hpa Soe Brothers Guesthouse in Myanmar

That was definitely a highlight of my Myanmar trip. I was in Myanmar before returning to Thailand. The Soe Brothers Guesthouse - Review of Soe Brothers Guesthouse, Hpa An, Myanmar

So I spent two-night with Soe' s sibling. All my employees were kind and responded to all my queries. There was an US group that was quite drunken, shouting and loud until 2am! At the end I had to tell them to keep their mouths closed, but I was hoping that the personnel would have done so, especially considering they were asking for peace after 10pm.

You have better rooms for $18 or $25 bucks, but for a lone individual it's not really good value for money.

Here we go to Hpa An - My Oh Myanmar !

It is a very enjoyable two and a half hours (or four hours) cruise on the Thanlwin River from Mawlemyine to Hpa An. Up until recently, there was maritime traffic, but the improvement of road safety and the use of motorcycle -based means of transportation - has put an end to this. Nowadays, if you want to travel by ferry, you must make reservations on one of the tour guide yachts that depart from B&B Guesthouse in Mawlemyine.

In Soe Brothers' guest house in Hpa An you can make the - less favourite - journey in the other one. Cruises are living in and departing from Mawlemyine and it is an 8am departure on a pick-up to get to the dock. Hpa An's ship departs around noon, but of course only if it has already come up from Mawlemyine this early one.

But not enough gamblers at the Mawlemyine end means no boot, no difference how many gamblers at the Hpa An end, at least until Breeze and the Soe Brothers Guesthouse in Hpa An are better coordinated. It is a passenger-dependent K10,000 to make the journey upriver, perhaps less in the other direction.

Accomodation tip: Breeze and Soe Brothers never had to be as well coordinated as they now have to be, because their visitors always took the - not everyday - official boats and the number of tourists was never so big that it was always a hassle to find a room in one of the two cities.

This is no longer the case; 1100 foreign nationals remained in Breeze in the last'season', 2000 or more will remain this year. The Soe Brothers could have packed another ten rooms on most of the day and had to ship prospective clients to their (more expensive) rivals. After arriving in Mawlemyine, make a reservation for a room in Hpa An.

This does not mean that Soe Brothers is the best place to spend the night in Myanmar, but it is one of the best if you take the opportunity to meet the very kind and funny personnel, old and young. Also I can't make a remark, because I couldn't see the rooms, because they were both fully occupied for a few nights (see above).

However, the major tourist attractions are the nearby landscape, a motorcycle or tuk-tuk open -air gardens with buddhistic caverns and indoor and outdoor swimminpools, with calcareous mounds jumping out of the rice paddies up to 800 meters high. Then what follows is one of the best ten-minute journey I've had and almost everyone says it's also a true gem, a magic instant that I won't describe because I don't want to ruin the amazement.

It' s another stroll, but this tour takes you slightly up to a vantage point (two, actually, if you go exploring a bit) high above the arable land and the water-filled squares below. The low walls separate the basin from the rice paddies. The small crevice in the walls allows a steady flow of fresh source waters into the gray rice paddies without the gray waters flowing back into the pools.

The Luba (Russia) did not come to the swimming because the women have to remain undercover, so come ready. Three small diners sell Thailand cuisine ( "many Hpa An" have been spending a lot of quality Thailand time) and of particular interest is a piece of whitish red paddy "wine", which has a little chewing jelly and a light aroma.

The natives are warning that the first toilets the first few times you take it, the next morning you go to the can. Only the first one, so try it more than once. Have I, and Nina (Holland) and I purchased some for the Christmas celebration I organized at Soe Brothers (Organized? I wrote'Christmas 6. 30pm Tomorrow' on the bulletin board).

With an onslaught one could see much of what makes Hpa An so remarkable and be gone in a few day, but that would be not to take the necessary amount of it. You' d better stay here for four whole day. However long you stay in the surroundings of Hpa An, you cannot help falling in awe.

This richness is largely due to the closeness of Hpa An to Thailand. The Myawaddy / Mae Sot boarder is only 3 hrs away, on a good new street. Its state was bad and so tight that the flow of cars changed between "up" and "down".

It will be an evident place for a first stop in Myanmar with so much to see and do. The Hpa An is in Kayin state. For a long time there was anger between Kayin Separatist and the Myanmar administration. Behind the Thai frontier there are some 90,000 Myanmar refugees.

Said that many of them are not Kayin natives who are inclined to construct another settlement and keep cultivating their lands when their settlement is demolished. It is Mandalay and Yangon citizens who say they come from Kayin towns and describe imagined horrors to warrant their desired fugitive state.

A friend of mine says that he is Rakhaine and Myanmar, not Bamar (Burma), as another of my English and Welsh buddies is, not English. And the Kayin I meet are not Bamar either, but almost a man and a women who do not think they are Myanmar.

To them, Myanmar is represented by the military, which has oppressed them and some of them continue to oppress them, and they do not want to be a part of it. Those are Kayin.
