"the old british colonial harbour town" Syriam by ukirsari

Syriam Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 12 photos

syriam offers me something different whenever visiting the golden land [the way burmese addresses their motherland]. several old colonial buildings still remains here. with laid back atmosphere.

one of the good preservation of catholican church in syriam is the sacred heart with the ruins of portuguese chuch nearby.

but the tourist attraction here is ye le paya at kyauk tan. i spent one fine day at syriam with zin zin [vt member zin]. beside enjoy finding old colonial buildings and churches, we also visited local markets and watching local womens making paper flowers and tit-bits of food fish nearby the yangon river.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:nice traditional markets, old churches and old buildings
  • Cons:bumpy road in several places
  • In a nutshell:enjoy the colonial buildings remains here
