You won't have any problems finding an English-speaking guide in Bagan since it's one of the most popular attractions in Burma. I wouldn't worry about it and just show up and you'll meet many with good english-speaking skills.

The other replies are right; many Burmese speak English and communication, especially in the Bagan area, will not be a problem. I usually stay in New Bagan. It's quieter than Nyaung U (the popular budget traveller town north of Old Bagan), and the villagers in the area are very friendly. I've become friends with some of the families there and always get invited to their homes for meals. Very kind people. The horse cart drivers in that area (ask for Gaw Soe or his brother Gaw Chan) also speak English well and can provide good information about the pagodas. The kids that sells souvenirs in front of the NK Betelnut Hotel can also be good little guides. One teenage boy named "99" (Nein Nein) is particuarly personable and knowledgeable about the area and has excellent English skills. I usually take him and/or one of his friends along for a horse cart tour of the pagodas. It's meeting people like those that make the trip so memorable.

There are many famous pagodas...

by Bangladeshee

There are many famous pagodas in Yangon. The greatest one is the Shwedagon Pagoda, Kaba Aye Pagoda, Sule Pagoda, and Botataung Pagoda also are a few of the others worth visiting. Other places of interest include National Museum, Zoological Garden, Wildlife Park in Hlawga and the Peoples' Park on Pyay Road.

Shwedagon Pagoda

Towering almost 100 metres above the green city-scape of Yangon, the Shwedagon Pagoda is the prominent landmark visible from miles around. One of the wonders of the world, the Shwedagon is believed to have been built approximately 2,500 years ago. It is the essence of Myanmar and a place that never fails to enchant. The great golden dome rises 98 metres (326 feet) above its base. The legend of the Shwedagon tells of two merchant brothers meeting the Buddha who gave them eight strands of His hair to be enshrined in Shwedagon. With the help of a number of celestial beings, the brothers and the king of this region (Myanmar) discovered the hill where the relics of the previous Buddhas had been enshrined.When the strands of the Buddha's hair were safely enshrined together with the relics of the preceeding Buddhas, a golden slab was laid on the relics chamber and a golden pagoda built on it. Over this a silver pagoda was built, then a tin pagoda~ a copper pagoda, a lead pagoda, a marble pagoda and finally an iron brick pagoda. Pagodas, indeed all Buddhist structures, should properly be walked around clockwise.

The Lady

by Hexepatty

The Lady... I'm not gonna name names. If you know Myanmar and its most RECENT history and have heard of its high profile martyr, you know who I am referring to. Just keep things in perspective. (Maybe I was hangin' out in diplomatic circles too much while I was there!) But I heard similar stories from more than a few people to know, where there is smoke, there is fire. With regards to the Lady... don't forget there are TWO sides to every story. Not saying she doesn't have the best of intentions for her people, but I have heard repeatedly from dip. corp folk & long time westerner expats that she could further her goals quicker by stepping down a tad on issues that wouldn't negatively impact her cause. She chooses not to back down out of ego, pure & simple. (Hey, she's human...)

The Government, for their part, certainly has more of a steep moral learning curve but again, don't take everything at face value. They would be willing to negotiate more w/ the Lady if she gave in in certain areas.

I'll leave it at that. When you visit, hopefully you can meet a Dip. Corp person or some ex-pat that can tell you far more than I care to write here in a public forum!

by Krystynn

go shopping for souvenirs and gifts!

I would recommend shopping at the Bogyoke Aung San Market. This market is named in honour of the assassinated Burmese national leader, General Aung San. Bogyoke Aung San Market is situated in the heart of Yangon - on Bogyoke Aung San Road. There, you can find numerous shops selling luxury items, handicrafts, food stuffs, clothing, jewellery, fashion and consumer goods.

The market is open daily from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM; but the BEST time to visit is probably around mid-morning @ 10:00 AM when the entire market is fully opened. Enjoy!

P.S. Please excuse my tired look... (also, no time to put on make-up!). ;-)
