Transport for indipendent tourist

by disaster53

Hi all, I have read on some site that an indipendent tourist is only allowed to use the airline to travel between cities in Burma, is this info correct? I'll be going to yangon first and from there I would like to visit mandalay but I would like to go by bus or boat because of the better view,I will be traveling alone and I want to be sure that once there I can book a bus or boart without problems, can anyone informe me on this? Thanks

Right now the whole situation of an independent tourist travelling to Myanmar/Burma is up in the air. But normally, there is no problem with travelling by bus or boat. Personally, I think the Mandalay to Bagan boat trip is fairly boring; not the most scenic river trip you'll take. Depending upon the water level it can take up a whole day (10-12 hours). I think you are better off flying between those two cities, getting into town early (the flight leaves very early in the morning), and having pretty much a full day to see the sights.
Hopefully the situation in the country will stabalize soon and tourists will be able to return this year. As things stand now, this whole situation is going to be devastating for people in Myanmar that depend upon tourism for their income.

As far as i know even last week people were still using the bus to go between cities. Not sure if it is possible this week but i have little doubt. As least on the normal 'tourist' routes. From Mandalay to Bagan i would skip the boat trip. Incredibly boring really. And rather expensive. If you have a little time, take the bus to Monywa. There are some really nice sites there that are worth a day (or 2), a nice and very different temple, the field of the 1000 sitting buddha's and a n buddhist caves nearby with small niches filled with buddha's. From Monywa you can take the bus to Pakokku where you can take the non-touristy ferry across the river to Nyaung Shwe (Bagan).

No problem at all, you can go . Although, curfew in Yangon and Mandalay ,bus leave in evening. Arrive early morning. Not effect. Go Yangon by Mandalay with bus and Mandalay to Bagan with Boat.Then, Bagan to Inle with bus if you prefer. No problem. The Ministry of Tourist not allowed to travel with motor bike only for safety reason.(Road accident and easy to get hurt).

Travel Tips for Rangoon

Shwedagon

by shiran_d

Experiencing the Shwedagon at sunset is the most special part of a visit to Rangoon. Walking around the base of the majestic Shwedagon, which is surrounded by 64 smaller pagodas and numerous temples and pavillions, is awe-inspiring. As you stroll the grounds of the compound, the warm evening air is sweet with the perfume of incense and flowers offered by the faithful, and the sound of the voices of young Buddhist nuns chanting prayers in the ancient Pali language mingles with the shimmering melodies of the countless small brass bells that adorn the pagodas and the penetrating low tomes of larger bells weighing several thousand pounds and housed in ornate pavillions as they are struck three times by the faithful, symbolic of the Three Gems of Buddhism: refuge in The Buddha, refuge in the teachings of The Buddha, and refuge in the monks (Boda, Dharma, Sanga). The images and sensations remain long after you've left and become fond memories. The Shwedagon amazing temple complex

Keep in mind that you are in a developing country which has been beset with a series of economic and political crisis in recent history.

Much of the town has been rebuilt after the Second World War but roads and buildings have again fallen into disrepair since the 60s. The Pavement cafes and food stalls are indicative of the modern Burmese way of life. Young couples stop in to get breakfast before work and occaisionally families sit and dine out together. Mostly though these cafes are frequented by men, it is like their social club.

Narrow, Busy, Fun Streets

by herzog63

While wandering the areas of Central Yangon I experienced the life of these narrow busy streets. I enjoyed the excitement that went on there. The architecture was so different than I expected it to be. Most of the streets were half filled up with parked cars that left only one lane for cars to drive on.

Pour your Buddha !

by vodolaz

There are eight days of burmese week `cos Wednesday divides on two parts in noon owing to Buddha was born in Wednesday. The little statuettes of Buddha symbolize each week`s day and are situated around all pagodas. If you were born in Monday , for example , you had to find your statuette of Buddha and pour water on his head , also you can buy some religious souvenires on entrance and then place them to him . Then Buddha give you good luck and happiness. It`s much better to do it if today is the day of week when you were born...
But how can you find your day of a week , if all the inscriptions are in Burmese ?
You can try to learn Burmese , ha-ha ..!
OK , I`ll show you the easier way , just say ` spasibo ` !
The point is that every day of a week has his own animal just like a symbol .
Monday - Tiger
Tuesday - Lion
Wednesday AM - Elephant with tusks
Wednesday PM - Elephant without tusks
Thursday - Little Mouse
Friday - Big Mouse
Saturday - Big Snake Naga
Sunday - Karudo Bird
So if you don`t see any inscriptions in English , or in your native language ( ha-ha ! ) , you just had to find statuette of your animal near the Buddha`s statuette , and then be sure that it is your day of a week... Pour Buddha !

I told this for what ? Just say ` spasibo ! `
Thank you for your attention !

Ladies with sunscreen

by vickss

Almost every female you find in Yangon will have a white or yellowish patch on her face. I am not sure if they do it all through the year but I guess it is used as a sunscreen during during the summer months.
