chrisvandenbroucke Says: The Mingun Bell should be the second largest in the world.The one in the Kremlin is the biggest (see my Moscow tips) but this one is much nicer.You can climb inside and let your friends bang the bell so that you come out (nearly deaf) with the resounding noice in your head...
In front of Mingun Paya under a tree. I had read in the LP guide book that the vendors here were pushy but we didn't experience that. Just the usual "Hello, Look at my store".
What to buy: You can get some locally grown peanuts and soft drinks, water and there are some souvenirs available too.

You see every girls, old and young Burmese ladies applied Tanaka on their cheeks. I find it very fascinating to see them with tanaka and sometimes with beautiful design of leaf, small whirls, round and heart-shaped. No wonder, all the women in Burma have the most beautiful complexion, no pimples or pigmentation. I have to try them :-))
Picture 1 : Nice complexion little girl
Picture 2 : In a hurry when applying tanaka, not so neat tanaka
Picture 3 : Tanaka is a piece of bark (sandalwood), grind with some water and apply in the skin. Can be bought in cream type too.

US$3 to enter the Sagaing - Mingun Archaelolgical Zone. It also gains you entrance to all of the areas Temples. You must keep the ticket with you at all times. But I was never asked to see mine. It is valid for 5 days. For most people 5 days would be sufficient to see the sites that the ticket covers.
