In the beautiful countryside surrounding Hpa An you will find many pagodas, one such pagoda is Kyaukkan Latt, perched on a limestone rock in the middle of a lake. In the late afternoon in the warm light and with the egrets returning to the trees to roost it is a splendid place to be.
Met uitzicht op de gouden rotsstupa van Kyaiktiyo (bij Bago), vouwden deze jonge monnikjes hun handen. Dit ter ere van de jaarlijkse ceremonie bij Kyaiktiyo waar duizenden pelgrims uit heel Myanmar naar toe reizen.
Having just returned from three fanastic weeks in Burma, I look forward to sharing some photos and enjoying your uploads.
Kayin state, limestone cliffs scattered with golden pagodas rising up from green paddy fields and dusty villages. Local buses were 1950 Chevrolets, wonderful. We hired a tuk tuk to take us to places we couldnt reach by bike. Half the time was spent in the countryside (Kayin) and half in town, (Mon). The pagodas and caves dotted around the Kayin countryside were beautiful and the green paddy fields make it so picturesque.
