There are two clearly different types of rooms. One is very, very basic and for US$20 a night you can upgrade to a much better room overlooking the pool.

So even though our room for the night was pretty grotty we slept well and they gave a good breakfast.We rented bikes for the day from a shop next door. And cycled to fancier hotel we had been recommended to find out there availability and great to find the rooms are $30 cheaper than booking them online. We then went to get our bags, which was fun …

get out. The result is a shrine used to this day by people praying for the
liberty of political prisoners, something the General-run dictatorship of

Today we climed Mount Popa. We knew there was 777 steps to the top of the mountain but were ready for the challenge. We hired a driver and off we went at 8.30 in the morning to avoid the heat at midday. We pulled up to the entrance of the steps and couldn't believe how high it went. We took it slowly and surely stopping to admire the view along the way. We took a few breaks avoiding the monkeys ...
