Read the first part on Yangon here

When I arrived to Yangon I was planning to do the usual golden triangle (Yangon-Inle Lake-Bagan) and maybe squeeze in Mandalay but I’m never too strict when it comes to planning so I ended up going south. I didn’t know much about it, especially because in the past it was much more difficult to travel to these remote towns and villages but it was well worth a visit.Luckily, the bus ride from Yangon to Hpa An was quite relaxing and comfortable…

The next day, it was time to leave Hpa An and catch a boat to Mawlamyine. Before we left the guest house we had some time to walk around the local market then we went to the river to find our “ship”. It was more like a boat with extremelly uncomfortable plastic chairs but luckily the boat trip was interesting enough to take away my thought from my soar back part.

We managed to survive another night in the prison hotel and caught the bus to Inle Lake the next morning.

Third and final part with pictures from Inle Lake and Bagan is coming soon 🙂
