TravelPod Member ReviewsMyanmar Panda Hotel Yangon (Rangoon)
My impressions have dimmed over the last few months home, but I remember the Panda Hotel as being adequate. The location was out of the way but at least it was close to the National Museum and some good restaurants and a supermarket. The room was fine and the breakfast buffet had lots of choices - it was better to order your eggs if you wanted any, otherwise you end up with cold eggs. Staff were courteous and helped me when I needed to extend my stay.

We took a flight from Bangkok to Yangon and the scenery flying in was amazing - lush green fields dotted with golden pagodas. I've had the best time in Yangon so far.

For the Burmese it is important to know the day of their birth. Each day is associated with a different animal and devotees present offerings at their planetary post (day of the week they were born on) and pour water onto the Buddha statue at their post. The offering and the prayer is suppose to grant you a wish so of course we all ...
... had won the appliances the other night at the bad Burmese karaoke party we went to. As we have no use for them, it was decided that we'd donate them. We made it to the Golden Rock around 0930 or so and bought a ride on a truck up the mountain - quite an amusing ride, not for the faint of heart. We spent some time on the hill, had lunch and then made our way back down. Now we're on our way back, in the air conditioned bus. Love the ...
... Pagoda. The pictures tell most of it, but essentially it a concrete version built in the 1950s and 1960s. The previous version was quite strange looking so they took it down (see picture). The guide also explained the "8 sides of the week" concept. Many stupas and other Buddhist arrangements in Myanmar have an octagonal shape with each side representing people born on a certain day of the week, with Wednesday having two (morning ...
