      Really nice hotel & grounds although you will like us probably arrive in evening and leave first thing in the morning. Manager immediately solved a small problem with our shower

      Best hotel at the top

      This is the best hotel near the top, but still fairly basic. We missed nothing essential though. We recommend it for those who want to walk up to the rock early in the morning, which we did. Sunrise at the rock is spectacular.
      Food is decent, no problems.

      We had an 8am pickup to drive via Bago to Kyaikhtiyo. We were going against the traffic but there's still a lot of it and we seemed to hit the school run too (on all sorts of transport).
      We arrive in Bago (NE of Yangon) to Shwemawdaw Paya which I believe is the tallest, although not built on a hill. In its own self-contained complex it's …

      ... backs, feel like I have done 10 rounds with Mike Tyson again. Failed to make it to the top for sunrise. Legend has it that the boulder maintains it's balance due to a precisely placed hair, formerly belonging to Buddha. Nicest hotel so far, trip notes incorrect, nothing basic about it. Time to do some Pilates to heal this battered ...

      A Day trip to the Golden Rock

      A travel blog entry by josh_manning on Nov 15, 2014

      Our day trip to golden rock started at 5am, in which we needed to get a 4 hour bus to the town at the bottom of the mountain where golden rock is and then a further 45 min pickup truck up to the top. I tried to sleep for most of the bus journey but only managed to doze, public transport as any tall person knows is rather uncomfortable at the best of times. We arrived at the town and were told ...

      We arrived to the hassling of the bus company to purchase tickets for the next day. Neither of us had coffee yet, we had coffee and we escaped.

      After visiting the foreigner's only toilets, which were very good, we packed onto a truck to be taken up to the top of the mountain to see the Golden Rock.

      When Luke mentioned that we would be taking a truck up to the top, I thought he meant that it would be a ute-like truck, boy was I ...

      Kyaikto, not much to see, except for the golden rock, that's what we came for. After a 5 hour bus ride we arrived at the base camp of the mountain with the golden rock on top (forgot the name). It was either a 4 hour hike to the top, or half an hour by truck, we choose for the lazy option because we didn't have so much time, our next bus was waiting already. We went to the truck station ...
