Bagan – The next Siem Reap?

Bagan in Myanmar and Siem Reap in Cambodia have, surprisingly, a lot in common. I mean there are all the half-gone temples, the prices which are way too high, the scams and the lack of any activity except the temples. Well, maybe you can tell by now, but this is not going to be one of these “Bagan is so amazing” posts,” simply because it is not! There are so many places a lot better to visit in Myanmar. If you are completely blown away by temples and religion, you might like Bagan. If you aren’t a fan of religion, saw 5 million temples before and want some action while traveling, like me, you might not enjoy Bagan (Or Siem Reap) at all.

Kalaw to Inle Lake

Kalaw to Inle lake trekking in the rainy season?

July – rainy season is in full swing, and I travel through Myanmar and later to Bangladesh. In Myanmar, one of the best things to do is to do a 3-day trekking tour from Kalaw to Inle Lake with a local experience and 64 Km walking over three days. Is it a good idea to do this in Rainy season or should you avoid it? And how was the trek and the experience?

Thanakha – The secret of Myanmars beauty

At first, it looks weird, especially if an immigration officer wears it but with the time you get used to it, and it just appears normal to you. But what is it? And why does woman wear it?
