Snapshots from Myanmar (Burma) – Part 1

Nice vivid picture of Stupa's in Bagan at Sunset.

Here is part 1 of our ‘snapshots from Myanmar (Burma)' series.  Showcasing some of the best of the country that we saw.  From enjoying Afternoon Tea at The Strand Hotel in Yangon..  To trekking miles out of Mawlamyine by 3 modes of transport to visit the World's Largest Reclining Buddha thats taken 15 years to build.. and is still not finished.  In fact they are building an even bigger one opposite it!
