The main objective of our visit to Myanmar is BAGAN. Of more than 4000 Pagodas, now remaining about 2000. The people are lovely, you always feel safe under any condition.
Tourists are not allowed to drive motorbike and no motorbike driver takes tourist. You either take public bus ( there is none after 5PM) or bicycle or the best for us horse carts.
We enjoyed the pagoda area two days and had the sun set at a pagoda near the river Ayayewaddy. The second day the sun set at the pagoda side.
We also visitedMyin Ka Par village near Bagan to lacquerware works.
The last day we went to Golf Resort and spent the whole day there swimming in their pool.
Tomorrow we are leaving this impressive town for Thazi via Meiktila. The next day we will continue to Inle Lake by train.You may know that Bagan is not a world herritage . We have difficulty in understanding this.
We, wife and husband, have decided to travel around the world, after we retired and our lovely dog (Juvi) passed away.
Every year, we spend few months for traveling. We prefer tropic and warm places. For the recent years, we preferred to shorten our travels since we miss our lovely granddaughter.
