"They smile even when they don't understand a word" Myanmar (Burma) Favorite Tip by travelagent4thailand

Myanmar (Burma) General: 190 reviews and 206 photos

Favorite thing: Bagan - the ancient city which is literally built with orange bricks....

this city sits right on the river...

climb up to the tallest jedi at sunset and immerse yourself into the silent orchestra as the orange sunsets into the horizon....

you will never see anothe site like this where the orange sun's reflection from the river connects the brick-brokened jedis....

Fondest memory: i must say the people really touched my heart.

their greetings are usually " sa - be- lah'? --literally means have you eaten....

and it is not a joke.

my friend from africa who just landed in myanmar was taken to a man's house for dinner with his entire family....and the dinner took place just because the man had asked that question. and of course, my african friend had no idea, but just nodded in kind...
