Myanmar / Thailand Trip Recap (5)

Day 6 - Mandalay

We left Bagan in the morning and boarded a plane to Mandalay.  (Air Mandalay operate a daily route from Yangon - Bagan - Mandalay - Heho - Yangon.  Our departure time gets later and later with each city we visit.)  Instead of a 10+ hours bus ride through the mountains, we arrived in Mandalay after 45 minutes.

Myanmar / Thailand Trip Recap (4)

Day 4 and 5 - Bagan

Early morning, we left Yangon and flew to Bagan and spent the next 2 nights there.  Bagan is famous for it's temples and known to be Myanmar's Angkor Wat.  If you are into history, culture, and architecture, this is heaven on earth.  The locals here are also very friendly... it almost seems like everybody knows everybody.

Myanmar / Thailand Trip Recap (3)

Day 3 - Yangon

It's a pretty laid back day as we spend most of the day visiting my mom's relatives and friends.  We ate breakfast at a different place and tried out various kinds of traditional goodies.  So good and so stuffed!!

Myanmar / Thailand Trip Recap (2)

Day 2 - Yangon

We started off our day with traditional Burmese breakfast - mohinga and "le-pet-yeh ball-sing" (that's noodles in fish soup and milk tea, easy on sugar in Burmese for you).  After you finish your bowl, you can even ask for more "hin" or soup for free to wash it all down.

Myanmar / Thailand Trip Recap (1)

I just came back from a 20-day trip to Myanmar and Thailand.  It wasn't the usual "get-your-visa-and-go" kind of trip for me and I can't even begin on how many problems I had prior to the trip... at one point, I almost thought I wouldn't be able to go...  I am so glad I didn't give up and grateful I finally get the chance to revisit Myanmar.  (The last time I was there I was ~7 years old!)
