Am Donnerstag sind wir dann mit einem Boot von Bagan nach Mandalay gefahren. Die Fahrt auf dem mächtigen Ayeyarwady Fluß über etwa 200 kilometer dauerte ganze 12 Stunden, von Sonnenaufgang bis Sonnenuntergang. Wir konnten das abwechlsungsreiche Leben am Fluß vom Deck des Bootes aus beobachten. Langeweile kam auf der interessanten Fahrt bei …
So, our next stop was... a monastery. OK! At least it wasn't a pagoda. We were the first tourists of the day and a young monk who wanted to practice his English asked if he could walk with us.
Monks were washing robes and hanging them to dry in front of barrack-like buildings. Others were sweeping. Some were talking in small groups …

When we checked in they put …

How has this hotel rated in the past?
Very good hotel downtown, with a lot of traffic on the back side of the hotel. We unfortunately had a room on the far side of the building which is practically attached to another building. Looking out of the window we saw the walls of the next building less than half a meter away...the room was simply dark all day. Anyone going there should ask for garden view. The restaurant is ok, decent Indian food. Service is fine as well.
