Tips

MANDALAY

 

- Yoe Yoe Ghest House (Between 35 - 36, between 57 - 58 St)A bit far from the center but totally worth it. Super nice staff, clean and with a great courtyard to hang out with other travelers.

-Win Win 35 (35th St, 60/62):Live music, cheap beer and sizzler plate meals.

 

 

BAGAN

- Pay the entry fee to Bagan in $, if you pay in kyats it will be more (15$ vs 16.000 kyats, Nov 2014).

- The Moon (North of Ananda Temple Bagan - Nyaung U Road): Vegetarian Restaurant with delicious food, they always give you Tamarin candys :)  

- In the Yarkinnthar Hotel Road  (Nyaung U) there are several restaurants, Aroma 2, Weather Spoon´s Bagan are really nice.

 - The best way to visit the Tamples is with a E-bike, the family who runs A.S.Y e-bike rental ( Main Road of Nyang U, between         Pyinsa Rupa Ghesthouse and May Kha Lar Ghesthouse) are super friendly.

- DON’T MISS THE SUNRISE you can see it from Shwesandaw Paya, although is a famous viewing spot during the sunrise in not so overcrowded, for sunset better go to Buledi.

 

KALAW

- Hi snack & drink (Kone Thai St): Probably the smallest bar I´ve ever been, great to hang out with locals while they play guitar and sing, time flies inside this place.

 

INLE LAKE

 

- Pay the entry fee to Inle lake in $, if you pay in kyats it will be more (15$ vs 15 € vs 16.000 kyats, Nov 2014).
