The day started at 5am. It wasn’t a great start – 2 ladies checked in at 4am in the morning and Miss Korean was snoring away (I had to slap her bed frame to try and make her change her sleeping posture so that she would stop snoring for 3 mins while I quickly fall back asleep).
My initial plan was to hike Mandalay Hill but I met a couple of travellers and we had booked a taxi for half a day so the driver drove us all the way up (thank god for that the hills were steep!).
What followed were more trips to the different temples and pagodas.
The trip ended around 2pm, and we got a quick lunch before retreating back to bed. Afternoons in the summer heat in Myanmar were no joke. We took a nap and caught the sunset over at U-Bein Bridge.
The next few days turned out to be the best of this trip – Inle Lake.
More to come.
