Transform into a Burmese
The people of Myanmar have their own unique characteristics; can not be confused with other countries expressed through the beauty and costumes. Burmese men often wear longyi skirts. This is simply a piece of cloth wrapped around the leg and knotted in the front. They think wearing this type of longy dress is very comfortable.
Meanwhile, women often apply thanaka on the face like makeup and sunscreen. Thanakha powder is extracted from many plants and used to apply on the cheeks. Going off the streets of Myanmar, it’s not hard to see the women using this natural cosmetic.
Therefore, it would be great if you integrate into traditional Myanmar like try wearing longyi dress or apply thanaka on your face.
Admire the world’s largest book
Don’t misunderstand! It is not the book with dense characters with thousands of pages. Kuthodaw pagoda at the foot of the hill in Mandalay is home to the largest book in the world. There are 729 stele sizes 1.5m x 1m stone carved Buddhist scriptures on both sides. Each stone is marble and carved elaborately.
These stelae are placed in small shrines. It takes three days to carve out the word on both sides of the rock and more than seven years to complete this great work. Because it is so big and so much to discover all this book is … difficult to do if you are only in Myanmar for a few days.
Check in the longest wooden bridge in the world
The world’s longest wooden bridge called U Bein connects the banks of the Taungthamna River. This is a place to attract tourists when visiting Mandalay and for the best Myanmar photography tours.
U Bein is 1.2 km long, made entirely of wood and has existed for two centuries. There are many temples on the banks of the river. You can rent boat exploration along the living, enjoying the water or simply standing on the bridge watching the sunset. This is considered as the most beautiful sunrise location in the world by the CNN Go travel agency voted.
Travel by hot air balloon
Without Bagan, your trip to Myanmar will not be complete. Bagan is the perfect place to do a balloon over Bagan. This capital is boldly classic with rich history and hundreds of temples. What is more ideal than admiring the whole city from above?
Feeling hovering in the air, looking down at Bagan city with its unique, soaring pagodas or glistening sunsets makes it a pretty picture that is hard to describe in words. Hot air ballooning has been in development for 16 years and costs about $ 200 per person. Or you can contact Bagan Day Tours to help you arrange the finest trip for you!
