Therefore, their main attraction are mainly pagodas, reclining Buddha, monk and nuns.If you travel to other state of Myanmar you will see the Hindu influence to some of their pagodas and history. They recently opened its doors to tourism and since they are still at pre mature stage, travelling here will be a lot of challenges. When you are travelling to Myanmar, you need to be prepared mentally with many things. 1. BRAND NEW DOLLAR BILLS   They need to have crisp, unmarked and basically new dollar bills. They will not hesitate to just reject your dollar although with just a little creased on it. I encounter this when paying my hotel fees during check in. To my eyes nothing wrong with my dollars. I guess their eyes is really sharp for that. Basically , bring the newest, mint condition dollar notes as if it just got printed out from the machine.   2. NO CREDIT CARD MACHINE   Don&

BAGAN,MYANMAR - WHAT TO SEE?

What to see in Bagan, Myanmar? Bagan is a flat land. When I reached there they are having dry season. So all I can see is like in the dessert....dusty and full of red sand. Bagan is famous with historical sites of Pagodas. This land has been ruled by 55 Kings and imagine most of the Kings built their own Pagodas????? So left and right front and back Pagodas Pagodas and Pagodas.   I will write about the story I heard on this Pagodas in my next entry. It is interesting for me because all this Pagodas has their own mystery especially the last one on this post. Creepy!!!!  The architecture of each Pagoda is unique. The mural painting of ancient daily life and history of Budha is fascinating. Most of this is preserved and untouched. Serious...the history is DAEBAK!
