Places visited: Yangon, Bagan
Me and my boyfreind spent a weekend in Myanmar (previously known as Burma) a few months ago, where we had the trip of our life and thanks to his impeccable planning skill, we managed to see almost everything that needed to be seen in Yangon and Bagan.
Myanmar is a popular destination for western backpackers which is not a surprise when the country is surrounded by dazzling and photogenic temples. After arriving Yangon Airport, we used a few hours to see the magnificent Shwedagon Paya before hopping on a plane to Bagan on the same day, there isn’t too much to do in Yangon so you can save your time to see other places in Myanmar.
Tips* Yangon’s traffic is really bad, make sure you plan extra time to get from one place to another.
