    National Hero.

    It's difficult to over-emphasise the part Bogyoke (General) Aung San plays in the national psyche of Myanmar. He is far more important than, say, a Washington or Lincoln in the US or a Churchill in the UK. Everywhere you go, there are statues of the great man, invariably in uniform, and generally striking a heroic pose.

    I found this statue of Aung San in a small park at the North end of the town. Of itself it's not particularly interesting, but the park is well-kept and a nice place to spend a few minutes under a shady tree away from the midday heat.

    As you walk North out of town, the park is on your right hand side, near the road that leads the the Museum of the Shan Princes (see seperate tip).

    Lot's of people walking

    You will see people walking along the roads sometimes they will be walking for miles to go to town as they can't afford the few cents that it costs to ride.

    The morning hustle and bustle

    Early in the morning as the long boats come in from villages from around the lake you can watch the people coming into town. My son and I enjoyed watching what they did.
