  • The sightseeing areas in Hpa An seriously can only be enjoyed at the break of dawn or in the setting sun. The afternoon sun does not offer much photographic sights and the humid heat is a killer. But ...  more »
  • This pagoda is located in the middle of a circular Lake in a vertical rock. There are around a food and clothing market. It is free and very curious to see, unlike others in the rest of the country.

  • On a rock in the water you climb up the stairs to a religious place. There is actually nothing special, it's all about the location, which is quite nice. It was full of pilgrims in their finest clothes because of thadingyut, which gave a special atmosphere.

  • I would only say that it was okay, but I was glad we visited, as it is picturesque and has great views of Mt Zwekabin. The actual visit was short. Walk across a foot bridge to the artificial island and remove your shoes. Walk around and up narrow stairways. You cannot go all the way to the top. Picture taking is not encouraged, this is a place of prayer. Silence is encouraged by signs that are ignored. Local tourists frequently stop foreigners to take pictures with them. (If this bothers you, don't visit Myanmar!) Before visiting we went to lunch at the nearby monastery (we were with a large group of our Burmese students) for a very good (free) vegetarian meal.
  • Snail mountain in thai word , in this temple have simple vegetarian food free for everyone you can see Mt. Zwegabin.
  • I like this place beautiful nature and very happy they are service free for eat lunch and dinner
  • Only 3 miles far from my house.
  • Nice scenery and setting but the "keep silent" signs are ignored by giggling and excited visitors, running kids, selfie enthusiasts, and anything else that makes us human :)
