Was wondering why there were so many people sitting under umbrellas. Turned out they were couples on a date. What should be a family outing could end up being R-rated.

Relatively large outdoor museum shows examples of daily life in all Myanmar states. You can buy here interesting souvenirs and learn about local folklore. Recommend to use one of the possible transportation meansl - bicycle or a golf car.

National Races Village, Yangon (1 Replies)
My husband and I are traveling to Myanmar in Late Dec 2009/Jan 2010. We have a couple of free days in our itinerary while we are in Yangon. I have found a paragraph on the National Races Village in a junior fiction book from our local library and wondered if anyone can tell me if it is worth a visit. How far would it be from the Shwedagon pagoda.

The National Races Village is located just before the Thanlyin Bridge at the Eastern limit of Yangon. Go on a weekend to see the locals play. Tacky but fun.

Hi guys Would just like to run through this itinerary and get your opinions on it...I've changed this a few times but i'm also trying to keep it sensible according to flight timing as well to maximise the amount of time at each city. I'm focusing on the big 4. Originally wanted to fly to Bagan straight away but flights go via 2 stops for the cheaper flight..so scrapped that, then thought Mandalay but then it means we lose a day there and as you can see i might need it. 16th Nov-Arrive...More
