As a Myanmar domestic traveller into Yangon International you are treated to very little aircon, plastic seats, squat toilets and a dusty parking lot. But walk out the front gate after your domestic flight, turn right past the gilded VIP (government) terminal and into the wifi enabled shiny glass International Terminal and you instantly walk from 3rd world Burma back into 1st world South East Asia. Bliss, relief, sanctuary or come down? It's certainly the only place outside of The Strand Hotel that felt "modern" in all our travels around the country.

The journey was great, with people getting on selling everything from wooden rain hats, live animals to food piled high on a big plate on their head. One of the stops was right next to a large outdoor market where lots of vendors got on with all of their stock to take home for the day. I was accidentally poked by the biggest asparagus I had ever seen!!

... drove past. There were people jumping on and off at each stop with things to sell and we couldn't help but try a few things. It was so tasty and my favourite was a lady who came on selling noodles mixed with a whole load of spices that she made in front of you for only 10p. Next stop was the famous Shwedagon Pagoda. It amazes me that places like this exist but are unknown to most of the world. The main pagoda was really beautiful but all of the ...
... wreathed in jungle and forgotten. In the 1880s a British survey team spotted the head of the statue protruding out of the jungle. A corrugated pavilion was erected over it to provide protection and the paintwork has been maintained in pristine condition. The mosaic pillow was a 19th century addition. It now resides in a prayer hall. This Buddha is greatly loved because of the serene facial expression and because of the images of Buddha's life at the back of ...
