Get on Myanmar's sluggishest railroad from Dawei to Myanmar's highest station, Myanmar! Visiting the vast Kyaikthanlan Paya temples before an unbelievable sundown. Take the boat to Ogre Island, the biggest island off the shore of the island of Mawlamyine. Take a motorcycle trip to see indigenous caoutchouc orchards and woodcarvings.
It is one of the most unbelievable places in Myanmar, especially when the cloud falls and the first rays of the sun set. A superlative town.... see the highest Stupa in Myanmar, two of the longest lying Buddhas & one of the biggest Burma python in the whole wide range of activities in Bago.
Don't miss Bago in your Myanmar travelogue! From Bago to Yangon, take a bus for the best road meal in Myanmar & the biggest number of Asian countryhouses. Take part as you walk through the gravelly roads and bumper-to-bumper transport in this mayhem!

Myanmar must be one of the best places in Myanmar! Myanmars' hiking destination is Kalaw, where you can organize a 3-day hike to Lake Inle. It is a scenically charming path along patches of quiltwork farming, tribal and village, river and jungles. Visiting Towns & Sanctuaries to see lotuses weavering, Karen Long Neck tribalwives and more.
There is much to see and do, but just being on the shores of Ile is one of the most scenic and tranquil places in Myanmar. Which is the largest town in Myanmar, Mandalay or Yangon? Be the judge after you have visited Burma's last imperial capitol. Get a pass to the Mandalay Archaeological Zone, which includes all the city's major attractions.
Rent a personal cab for an unforgettable outing to the other old imperial towns of Amarapura, Sagaing & Inwa Island, just outside Mandalay. Discover the kingly secret of the last Shan Prince and his family in the relaxing city of Hsipaw before embarking on an exciting hike through the nearby towns and landscapes.
From Hsipaw to Pyin Oo Lwin by rail over the Gokteik viaduct, once the second highest rail link in the run. Pyin Oo Lwin has the best ambience of Myanmar in the UK folk age.
