... on the couch and watch movies all day while it pours rain. After being on the go for almost three months these small ordinary things certainly felt like luxuries. It was actually kinda funny. I became a house wife for a week. Did touristy things in the morning, groceries in the afternoon and then cooked and cleaned while the "kid" was at "work" and then we would enjoy a nice meal together before bed. "Honey I'm home!" Haha so civilised!! In terms of touristy things the first ...
... internet connection to sort out a couple of things we need to get in the bag for when we leave Myanmar.
We enjoy a little lie-in the next day, then after breakfast we head out to explore locally. We’re now into the low, rainy season in Myanmar and figure we might need to get hold of some cheap waterproof coats for when we head up-country (our Gore Tex jackets went back to the UK months ago!)

Being the largest golden monument on earth with 99 meters in height, Shwedagon Pagoda is the country´s biggest tourist attraction, built approx. 2,500 years ago. Bygone kings and queens of Myanmar donated gold of their own weight to this golden stupa. The world´s largest bell used to be here, before it was stolen. There is a good story related to the pagoda.

This hotel close to the Aung San Market. Just walking for about 5 minute. Beside the old building and architecture, the hotel had a nice restaurant with great menu.
