Symbol of Myanmar | Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, one of the three major ancient sites in Southeast Asia of Buddhism's Light.
Shwedagon Pagoda, also known as the Golden Pagoda, was first built in 585 BC and has undergone repairs and renovations over the years. The current height of the pagoda is 112 meters and the circumference of the base is 427 meters. It is the most sacred Buddhist pagoda in Myanmar, as it enshrines relics of four Buddhas. Along with Indonesia's Borobudur Temple and Cambodia's Angkor Wat, it is known as one of the "Three Great Monuments of Southeast Asia" and is a world-renowned symbol of Myanmar.
The Shwedagon Pagoda is located on the Dinggudala Mountain in the Inya Lake area of Yangon. Built in the pre-Christian era, the Shwedagon Pagoda has a history of more than 2,500 years and is the oldest pagoda in Myanmar. According to legend, the Burmese merchants Ko Gada Putta brothers brought back eight strands of Buddha's hair from India and presented them to the Burmese king, who ordered the construction of the pagoda in this ancient fishing village to preserve the Buddha's hair. When it was first built, the pagoda was only about 20 meters high, but after more than 2,000 years of repairs and expansions, it has become what it is today. The main tower is over 100 meters high, surrounded by walls, with entrances on all four sides. The south gate is the main entrance, and there is now an elevator for tourists to visit. There are more than 70 marble steps that lead up to the main tower platform. There is a small stone tower at each corner of the platform, with the main tower in the middle. The main tower is covered in pure gold foil, with over 5,000 diamonds and more than 2,000 precious stones embedded in the top. A wind chime hangs from the top of the tower, and when the wind blows, it rings out a pleasant sound that spreads in all directions. There are also two large bells hanging in the pagoda courtyard. According to legend, ringing the bells three times can make your wishes come true. The Burmese people regard the Shwedagon Pagoda as a holy site of Buddhism and a source of national pride. The Shwedagon Pagoda, along with Indonesia's Borobudur Temple and Cambodia's Angkor Wat, is one of the famous wonders of the East.
In April 2019, I traveled to Myanmar and had the privilege of visiting the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon. Together with the locals, I devoutly prayed under the scorching noon sun, feeling the Buddha's light. It's an unforgettable experience till now!

U Bein Bridge Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Sep)
Beautiful Sunset at U Bein Bridge
U Bein Bridge has become one of Myanmar’s iconic landmarks, the bridge was constructed in the 1850s by a mayor, built out of 1, 086 posts, total length 1,200 meters acrosses the Lake Taunghthaman in Amarapura, and is believed to be the oldest & longest teakwood bridge in the world, the surface planks are from the old royal palace of Inwa.
I went there on January, because the weather is more cooler. The best time to see the most beauty of U Bein Bridge is in the sunset time, the slanting rays of the setting sun gave a warm orange tinge to the sky, gorgeous & peaceful, certainly becomes the most hunted photographed site for tourists and even locals.😉😎
The world’s longest teak bridge
U Bein Bridge is a must see attraction in Mandalay. It is one of the best places to contemplate the sunrise and sunset. Apart from being a tourist attraction, this bridge is also a road for locals.

THE OLDEST & LONGEST TEAKWOOD BRIDGE
A day in Mandalay to cap off my trip in Burma. 🇲🇲
📍 U-Bein Bridge is a crossing that spans the Taungthaman Lake near Amarapura in Myanmar. The 1.2-kilometre bridge was built around 1850 and is believed to be the oldest and longest teakwood bridge in the world. This spot remains one of the most beautiful sunsets I gazed on! 🌅
The Taungthaman Lake is near the ancient capital of Amarapura, and the bridge spans it. It was once the royal capital, but it has now been merged into Mandalay. The bridge was built around 1850 and is named for U Bein, the mayor who commissioned it. (U is a Burmese honorific that is essentially equivalent to Mister, except that it is earned rather than given, and it denotes someone who is esteemed in the community.)
Although parts of the original pillars have been rebuilt with concrete, the structure was originally made of salvaged teak from a nearby palace. However, a surprising number of the wooden pillars survive, giving the bridge its shaky appearance.
The bridge is still widely used by local pedestrians, but it is also a popular tourist attraction, particularly after sunset. Tourist-chartered small wooden boats glide under and around the bridge, lining up on the western side just as the sun sets behind the bridge's shadow.
The western bank is congested with souvenir dealers, tour bus drivers killing time, and restaurants.
Bagan Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Sep)
Bagan temples is highlight of our visit to this ancient city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the 11th and 13th centuries, 4,446 Buddhist temples, pagodas and monasteries were constructed in the Bagan plains alone, of which the remains of 3822 temples and pagodas still survive to the present day. We got a sense of the landscape of Bagan and its temples by a balloon ride in the morning followed a visit to the main temples over 2 days. We started with Ananda temple which is one of Old Bagan temples which well restored and then we saw sunset over the Irrawaddy river from the Bu Paya temple. The next day we visited the imposing three-storied Htilominlo Temple, which is currently being restored, the Upali Thein and red bricked Khaymigha temples nearby towards Old Bagan on the road from Nyaung-U.

#timetotravel #myanmar #lake
Beautiful Inle Lake
Discover a Myanmar less discovered, and take a half (or full) day boat tour to the villages around Inle Lake. We arrived by afternoon, enough time to wrap up the tour with stunning sunset. Serene and simply magical. Villages of simple homes made of wood and woven bamboo rise on stilts above water that, in sections, with elaborate floating gardens. The lotus fabric weaving workshop was also worth to visit. Overall experience was excellent.
For those hesitant of boat adventures, fret not: the boats are extremely comfortable, not at all sea-sickness-inducing, and each passenger is seated in a very relaxing armchair of their own for the entire ride.
Getting there - 1 hour domestic flight from Yangon to Heho Airport in Shan State.
Few places represent so clearly the meaning of Myanmar. There is so much to see and do in Inle Lake and, above all, to feel, that it is best not to follow any other scheme than the one it proposes.
Although Inle Lake is actually only 11 kilometers long, it is spread over so many marshes and canals that its watery influence ultimately extends for just over 100 kilometers.
Fortunately, the shores of the lake are still largely untouched by any constructions that might obstruct such a dreamlike panorama. Nyaungshwe, the most important city with the largest tourist infrastructure, is connected to the lake by a canal of approximately 4 kilometers, which distances the Natural Reserve from any self-respecting urban commotion.#nationalpark
