    Cosecha de arroz - Rice crop

    by elpariente Updated Aug 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    La cosecha de arroz se hace a mano y con grandes cuadrillas de gente que siegan y recojen el arroz
    teníais que ver como se reían cuando hacíamos las fotos y sobre todo cuando se veían en la cámara
    The rice crop is hand made with big teams that mow and crop the rice.
    You should see how much they enjoyed when we made the photos and spetially when we showed themin the camera

    Golden Rock Pagoda

    by illa Updated Mar 7, 2004

    I'm not sure if I put my page into the right region. I know Golden Rock Pagoda is located in Kyaikhto, however, we hired a taxi and took a one day trip to Bago and Golden Rock Pagoda. If you have a better idea which region I should put my page to, please let me know and I can move it.
    Golden Rock is one of the most sacred places in Myanmar, a massive goldleafed boulder balances on the edge of a cliff. The entrance fee is US$6. I liked not only the rock, which is pretty amazing, but also the hiking. It takes about 2 hours climbing, somewhere it is very sleep. At the top, it's like entering a theme park. There is also a school up there. When you come down the mountain in the afternoon, you may probably come together with those after school little kids, who climb the mountain everyday to go to school and who would enjoy coming down with you all the way hand in hand...
    Try to avoid visiting the rock on a full moon day, because the rock is visited by plenty of Burmese, which will cause you waiting many hours as the path is very narrow.
