"Bago; take a trip with 2 old local guys on a bike" Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do Tip by BE001903

Myanmar (Burma) Things to Do: 466 reviews and 933 photos

We had already seen all the sights listed in the lonely planet and were just wandering around the town. We met up with these 2 old guys (don't remeber their names ) who drove around people with their bikes. They wanted to drive us around to the snake of Budha, a cheroot factory, a monastary etc.. They showed us a small book with comments from foreign tourists they had driven around on this tour. We really had a blast with these guys. They drove us around the whole afternoon outside Bago city. Apart from the sights they showed us, we really enjoyed their company and their stories. There are probably more guys like them around, so if you meet them and you have some time to spare; go for it.
