  • This Buddha is nice to look at and certainly Selfie - and Instagram-compatible, however, he has also inner values. Life-size exhibits depict scenes from Buddha's life and beyond. However, the information content only for connoisseurs of the Burmese language is accessible and therefore only large graphs without explanation the average traveller... It's a pity really. For the visit of Mawlamyine out at best a motorbike hire, then you can put more attractions right in a tour. The rental is located in the building with the my city Café (5,000 MMK only semi-automatic, no scooters). Moto-taxis are alternative (6,000 MMK to back) or offered a car tour (20,000 MMK incl. other attractions).
