    Un deuxième pas en Asie - Le Myanmar

    January 4, 2020 in Myanmar ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Après une petite pause bienvenue à Singapour, nous voilà arrivés au Myanmar (ex Birmanie)
    Loin du confort de notre hostel avec piscine et des transports en commun propre de Singapour, on est directement catapulté dans le dépaysement dès la sortie de l'aéroport de Yangon! On choisit de prendre un bus local pour aller jusqu'au centre ville plutôt qu'un taxi 🚍😁
    Les birmans sont en habits traditionnels et il y a du monde et de l'animation partout dans les rues. Le chauffeur conduit comme un fou mais ça à l'air commun ici ! Il fait très chaud, 34°C l'après midi mais ça reste supportable.

    Après une journée d'adaptation et de repos, première visite birmane: Schwedagon Pagoda. Au centre de la ville, une immense pagode dorée qui est un temple Bouddhiste. 🤩

    December 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 😊

    Asia Tour - Yangon - Burma

    April 6, 2019 in Myanmar ⋅ ☀️ 36 °C

    Woke up not feeling too good again. It was 1pm before I moved from my bed, I don’t know what’s wrong with me, my head, muscles and even my bones are sore and my stomach isn’t too happy either.

    Did a short walk around the city today but I was exhausted due to the heat and I think sickness. I went the pagoda but it’s under maintenance so you can’t see it (I’ve downloaded a proper picture of it though)

    Went back the hostel and slept. Hope I can shake whatever this is before Monday when I have a 10 hour coach journey to Bagan

    Gestern bin ich angekommen in Yangon und heute hab ich das Shwedagon Pagoda gesehen. Ein riesiges Gelände mit 4 Eingängen und ganz vielen Monks und Touristen. 6€ hat der Eintritt gekostet und aus Respekt musste man seine Knie und Schultern bedecken und barfuß rumlaufen.Read more

    Exploring Yangon

    September 12, 2019 in Myanmar ⋅ 🌧 25 °C

    We are in the middle of monsoon season and spend the day exploring the capital in the rain. We accidentally come across a popular couples hangout, the People's Park. Through the pouring rain we see lots of fun ornaments, lush gardens, canoodling huts, a lovers walk, abandoned aircrafts and steam engines. Next, we reach the beautiful Shwedagon Pagoda, a huge complex with mirrored and bejeweled temples around the main stupa housing the gold Buddhas and statues. We finished the day at Kandawgyi lake and boardwalk, which I suspect would be much nicer in the sun, still we had a quick walk and hid in a fancy coffee shop.Read more

    Shwedagon Pagode

    July 11, 2017 in Myanmar ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C

    Fast von überall her zu erkennen glänzt die Shwedagon Pagode in Myanmars Hauptstadt Yangon selbst im Regen. Oben angekommen öffnet sich mir eine Fantasiewelt. Die Shwedagon Pagode - das Wichtigste Heiligtum der Buddhisten in diesem Land.Read more

    November 26, 2015 in Myanmar ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    S'il y a bien une chose à faire incontournable à Yangon, c'est la pagode Shwedagon. Pour beaucoup, elle est considérée comme la plus belle du monde, la plus impressionnante ou encore la plus grandiose...c'est le coeur du bouddhisme birman. Une belle ambiance, envoûtante, recueillie où les fidèles se pressent par millier. On doit y rentrer bien sûr pieds nus, un bon mélange de saveurs!!Read more
