Myanmar Top 10 Activities
SKY SCANNER gives you the top 10 things you can do in this unexplored resort. Not on the most travelers' minds yet, so come and see this amazing, gorgeous land before anyone else! The glistening Shwedagon Pagoda, one of the world's greatest worship memorials, must be seen to be thought of.
At dusk, for exceptionally evocative photographs of friars interspersed with gold towers and sculptures, and admire the size and extent of the main Stupa. Finished with the temple for the outing? Discover the lively and pulsating town of Yangon. Myanmar's first empire showed its power through an architectural design that produced tens of thousand shrines, palagodas and convents spread across a huge semi-desert flat.
Take a hot-air baloon to get an incomparable photo, then hire an electronic bicycle to walk the powdery flats, watch the sun set on a couch and maybe see your own abandoned sanctuary. Mandalay, the city of Myanmar's glorious past, is rightly proud of its richness.
Tour the wallet-covered town of the rebuilt Royal Palace, see iconic couples along the way to Mandalay Hill and witness the astonishing early bird's-eye wash in the famous Mahamuni Pagoda. When you have finished your pagoda and temple for a while, drive to beautiful Ngapali Beach. Horse riding or cycling trips to the near fishermen's village are other activities.
If you want a more relaxed and inexpensive holiday, visit the beaches of Ngwe Shaung Beach and Chaungtha Beach. Uncertainly situated on the edges of a rock, the Kyaiktiyo, or Golden Rock, is perhaps the third most important place of worship after the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon and the Mahamuni Pagoda in Mandalay.
Embedded in the rolling countryside, the mystical cliffs offer some breathtaking photographic possibilities, especially at sundown. Whilst most of us go up by lorry, there is a shady pilgrim' s way, which makes a wonderful day's walk through beautiful towns on the way up possible. Few hours outside Mandalay there is the U Bein Bridges, probably the oldest and longest teak wooden bridges in the whole wide area.
Discover the wonderful and spacious Botanical Garden and float in the clear blue-green water of the Anisakhana Falls. Pyin Oo Lwin is also known for his coffees, berries and beans. Thingyan, or Water Festival, is held in mid-April and is probably the most thrilling occasion in Myanmar.
