Myanmar has recently emerged from years of international isolation. This fantastic Southeast Asian nation is a magnet for travelers fascinated with Burmese culture. Towering golden stupas and Buddhist temples are found throughout the land. The world famous Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangoon is a must-see attraction. Scattered throughout the country’s midsection are ruins from the former Pyu city-states, several of which are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In Mandalay, you can visit the famous U Bein Bridge, known to locals as the “lover’s bridge.” With a growing tourism sector and a rich cultural history, Myanmar is a gem of a destination. Tourists who venture here will find it hard not to fall in love.
M36***22It is said that it is the most beautiful temple in Bagan. I don't agree with it very much. It feels more luxurious and lacks in connotation. Ananda Temple was built in 1105 AD and was built by King Kyanzittha of the Pagan Dynasty. The whole temple is square. There are four golden Buddha statues in the temple, facing east, west, south and north. Directions.
TIC_This_is_ChinaBoat trip at Inle Lake was truly enjoyable. I am glad that we stayed at Bagan Lodge, a comfortable hotel with direct access to the lake. In addition to the boat trip, we visited “lotus silk” weaving shop and silverware making shop.
I have never been to Myanmar nor will I be able to visit anytime soon due to Covid. However I am a big #travelfoodie and made a #stayathome food vacation from where I was stranded during the Pandemic. I made Burmese tofu from chick peas, and made a very very gooey curry. It was delicious, with the extra tofu I coated and fried it and it melted like cream when bitten into. A very interesting cuisine and gastronomic vacation from my kitchen!!

When it comes to travel, Myanmar has never been a top priority.
This country is located between South Asia and Southeast Asia. Most people know only jade and war. However, with the end of the military government's rule, it is hoped that it will be presented to the world with a new look. At the same time, the simple folk customs, ultra-low prices and original ecological landscape left by the world's legacy for decades have not been disrupted by the tourists who followed. So what I mean is now! in! Best for traveling to Myanmar! ! !
I still want to "thank you" for the colonization of the British colonists and the economic stagnation of the last few decades of the last century... otherwise there would be no reservations that would be so good, as if they had crossed the Kingdom of Myanmar from centuries ago.
One-legged fisherman is a unique landscape of Inle Lake in Myanmar. They stand on one foot and the other foot hangs on the boat with paddles, which requires a good balance. The fisherman carefully observed the underwater, once the fish was found, immediately covered the bamboo net with a mess. This is the original fishing method that Inle Lake people have passed down from generation to generation, and the modern fisherman has learned a new fishing technique: the boat is waiting for the water, and when the boat approaches, they hold the bamboo net and put a single-foot rowing pose to take pictures of the tourists. In exchange for a tip.
The most beautiful scenery in the world
is that the original heart is not known
When it comes to wooden architecture, except for the golden teak palace that the palace goes to, it is magical. The first time I saw the temple of the whole wood, so old can actually walk on the people, the gold paint falls off but there are traces to follow. And did not enter the special to scrape it out. The carvings are exquisite, although the wooden temples can be found larger, but they are not so beautiful. The
Imperial Palace is made of teak wood, a unique tree species unique to Myanmar. It has the characteristics of being non-cracking and corrosion-resistant. The feudal dynasty also made teak as royal wood. The palace and imperial city were built with this wood. . Unfortunately, such a magnificent palace was destroyed in World War II. The Myanmar government rebuilt in 1989 and has now partially restored its historical glory.
Don't miss out on friends who like Teak Palace. It's rare to have such a beautiful view. Listen carefully and smell.
Manuha Paya was built by the princes who were taken hostage by the Bagan dynasty. It is one of the most important temples in Bagan. The most memorable ones are three huge Buddha statues (one reclining Buddha, two Sitting Buddha, especially the Reclining Buddha.
This huge reclining Buddha has a very unique personality. There is no place for the Buddha in the brick wall except for a reclining Buddha. The tourists can only walk sideways. A huge sense of rush is on the way, so people can imagine the repair tower. The prince is a depressed mood.
And the smile of the corner of the Buddha's mouth seems to be the freedom that the prince wants. If you follow the towers to trace the past, you can see the back of a dynasty, and what kind of iron horses and swords are behind the towers.
