Travel Blogs from Kyaikto

ein riesiger Felsen von etwa 50 meter Durchmesser, der aussieht als …
We will depart Yangon in the morning and travel by road to Kyaikhtiyo. Once on our uphill trek, we will have the chance to encounter engaging locals and to admire the natural beauty of the surroundings before reaching the astounding Golden Rock, one of the most venerated sites in all of Asia.
We have finally begun our road trip through Myanmar!

TravelPod Member ReviewsGolden Rock Hotel Kyaikhtiyo Kyaikto
