Accommodation Review – Agga Youth Hotel, Yangon

Well, I didn’t find this place in my guide book, but it seemed to fit what I needed and I found it online by chance. It had a nice website and it looked new and pretty clean, and it was both those things, although it wasn’t quite as I expected it. Still, Yangon may not …

A Day on a Lake – Part One

Inle Lake, Myanmar, is one of the country’s busiest tourist spots. People can take a room on or around the lake at several hundred dollars a night, but the backpackers and tourists with more limited funds will head for Nyaungshwe and get a room there.

Accommodation Review – May Kha Lar Guesthouse, Nyaung U, Myanmar (Bagan)

The next accommodation review is in, and it doesn’t quite match up to the first two places I stayed in Myanmar, but to be honest, they were pretty special. I had also pre-booked the May Khar Lar Guesthouse on Asiarooms.com I think, but I kinda knew I was in for a drop in quality. I …
