Myanmar Photo TR

Recommended Posts

Saw Burma / Myanmar mentioned a couple of times on other threads , so thought I would post some pics I took back in 2015 

I spent 14 nights there , starting in Yangon then flying to Bagan before going on a two night cruise to Mandalay. My next stop was Inle Lake and after flew to Ngapali Beach then returning to Yangon

I didnt experience the nightlife there , it was just a sightseeing holiday ... 

Enjoy

My memory of the names of all the places in the pics may not be 100% , but I kept my itineraries so know roughly what I was doing each day ..

Yangon 

Aung San Suu Kyi's compound , a year before I visited you would not have been allowed to take any pics at all ..

Ok I’ll add a few as promised also. We went before Aung San Suu Kyi (or however the fk you spell it) did her thing, not that it’s made any difference........

Yangon

The nightlife was a bit limited, after the ‘beer shops’ had closed a taxi driver took us to a nightclub. We got offered girls on the way which we declined and we really did end up in a night club which resembled the basement of somebodies house in a suburb, had a good night nonetheless!
