YangonDecember 16, 2018 in Myanmar ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C
This hostel has the best beds. Like sleeping on a cloud 😊 Woke up, had good breakfast and then headed out with Damia, a French girl who joined me for breakfast. What a day - first the National Museum, to see and learn about Myanmar, its history, people, art,... Fun place, this country really has a lot of history I knew nothing about. Next stop was Shwedagon Pagoda, the biggest one, seen from all over town. Lots of people, mostly locals, praying, socializing, really peaceful place. Next we headed to te beautiful park, so nice, quiet, birds singing all the time, it was quite a walk around it. Ended up with seeing St. Mary's Church (Portuguese church) and finally - dinner. Some fancy restaurant (Burma Bistro) with amazing local food, costed like €24 for two (including gintonics, beers, deserts, you name it). Now chilling, beer and writing this :)
Yangon is nice, big but not many tourists and streets not too busy, it is Sunday though. People are smiling all the time, very friendly, really a nice place.
Tomorrow it's circular train time - a 0,30€ train ride around whole Yangon, should be pretty scenic I've heard 😊Read more
