The first destination in our journey is Old Bagan, 42km², on the banks of the Ayeyarwaddy River in the central part of Myanamar. Old Bagan is home to the most unique temples and temple structures in Southeast Asia, with more than 3,000 temples and ancient temples – a testimony to Myanmar’s glorious history.
Bagan consists of three towns: Nyuang U, Old Bagan and New Bagan, and an area spread out over many temples. With the number of temples, monasteries and many cultural values, Buddhist beliefs, Myanmar Old Bagan always know how to conquer tourists.
And in particular, anyone who comes to Old Bagan can not ignore sunrise and sunset at Shwesandaw – Sunset Temple. To get there, you can either travel by horse cart or rent a motorbike.
Far from the tranquility of Old Bagan, our next destination is Mandalay, a land filled with the noise of vehicles and busy boats. But within the modern and dusty exterior, Mandalay still boldly marks the end of Burmese history.
Moving about 716km from the north of Yagoon city is the center of the culture of the Kingdom of Kohbaun. Therefore, this place has become the tourist attraction in Myanmar. As we explored this land for only half a day, we decided to go to the teak Ubein – one of the most beautiful sunset spots in the world.
Ubein Bridge is located in the outskirts of Mandalay, the delta of the Taungthamna River. Due to the wide riverbed, to connect the two banks of the river, the Burmese people built a 1.2 km long bridge. This is the longest and oldest wooden bridge in the world, the other side of the bridge is the ancient village of Inwa has more than 400 years old.
On the summers, a bright orange fire enveloped the whole panorama of the bridge. In order to watch the sunset, we chose to sit in boats on the river. Feeling really excited when the scene of the legendary bridge to shine into the lake and get in the midday orange of the devil. The small wave created by the oars from the boat carrying tourists makes the sunshine become more sparkling, fanciful …
Leaving the city of Mandalay, we go to Inle Lake, away from the hustle and bustle of sunny days, Inle Lake you will feel very peaceful and cold weather in the early morning.
With an area of nearly 250 km², Inle Lake is the second largest freshwater lake in Myanmar but is the most beautiful lake. The lake connects to Nyangshwe by a large canal. This is the main transportation artery for Inle Lake as well as for irrigation water from the lake to the fields in the area. Surrounded by lakes are mountains and small villages, where there are houses on stilts, monasteries, beautiful temples.
Sitting on the boat watching Inle Lake in the early morning, feeling like floating in the clouds of paradise. I never saw that feeling wherever I went, Inle Lake is not beautiful, do not make you scream when you see but live with it, gradually you will be fascinated with it and do not want to leave.
Inle is not wide in the vast bowl that is touched by the green grass drooping open the floor on the floor to shine the lake. These include the smithy, the artisan workshop, the sunshade with cattle paper, silverware or weave cloth from the lotus leaflets and some restaurants catering to visitors floating on the lake.
A Myanmar tour to explore this country is no longer a mythical dream for everyone. Visiting myanmar and enjoying the beautiful scenery and unique culture will definitely be a very special trip for our life.
