2 Myanmar pictures - street hawker & bungalows

2 pictures from Myanmar taken in Oct 2008

A famous temple where devotees pray to the snakes. A village near to Mandalay. Outside the temple, I have taken a picture of an ice-cream vendor.

Big spacious grounds are beautiful bungalows. On top of the hillock is The Governor's House recreated (see pictures in earlier blog). During the peak season (November to April), the rental of a room in The Governor's house is around US$300 per night.

These bungalows are more affordable to rent and contains a shower and spacious bedroom cum living room with space more than 4 x the average hotel room. Best time to visit is November and December where a hundred thousand flowers bloom. A visit to Pyin Oo Lwin will not be a "hardship" tour for Singapore wives who are not used to bumpy road rides and lack of good bathrooms.
