Bago no está lejos de Yangon, sólo a 80 kilómetros ,pero pueden ser más de tres horas en coche. Está de camino hacia el norte por carretera y no hay demasiados turistas.
Hay varios templos interesantes , entre ellos uno donde se haya el Buda recostado mas grande de Myanmar
También hay un monasterio donde se puede presenciar la comida de los monjes a las 10h 30m .
Casi mil monjes hacen cola para recojer en su cuenco el arroz , que se supone se lo han dado por la mañana (alms) y pasan al comedor donde comparten las mesas
Después de Bago seguimos hacia el norte y la carretera es un espectáculo constante en el que cambia todo constantemente y hay siempre un rio de gente dándole vida, no se pueden olvidar los mercados y el colorido que tienen

Bago is not far away from Yangon, only 80 kms, but you may need more than three hours to reach by road.It is on the way to the North
and there are not many tourists
There are several interesting temples, one of them has the biggest reclyning Bhuda in Myanmar
There is also a monastery where you can attend to the monks lunch at 10h 30m
Near 1000 monks make a kew to get their rice ration on their bowl, that is supposed the one they got with the "alms" in the morning and they pass to the refertory where they shear the tables
From here we went to the North where the road is a real show where every thing is constantly changing and there is always a river of people giving life to it.You musn´t forget the markets and they colourful
