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


Back in the car, just outside Nyaungshwe, we stop at Shweyanbyi Monastery, a beautiful, but unremarkable carved teak building. Next door at the temple, the inside is filled with niches, each one containing a small Buddha figure and the name of the donor. Many are European. There are hundreds of these. Very different.
