Taungoo Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 7 photos

Taungoo,stop-over for all tourists who rent a car+driver and travel up north to Inle lake /Kalaw or south to Bago/Yangon

street views

Glad we didn't fly cause lots of things to see while travelling by road.
You spot so many things from the local rural Myanmar life you otherwise never could see

Lots of road works

Slowly,little bumpy you pass all the road works.
Hard to believe how those poor people have to work in the burning sun dragging stones and pooring boiling tar

    Something is wrong with the "Quiet location far enough from the road for a absolutely quiet night". The mother house is just beside the high way road. Trucks and high way buses pass all night long.
