In our annual trip, we strive to add new experience each year, or even better to have our first moment together about something. #TerravelingMyanmar was remarkable, we had our first sunrise watching air balloon in Bagan. We woke up at 5 AM, riding electric bikes for more than 30 minutes accompanied by the weather: 10 Celsius degree! Myanmar, an enigmatic paradise with thousand of pagodas offers a journey of authenticity, exotic, and adventure all in one. We all agree that traveling to Myanmar feels like bringing us back in time, to a different era. It feels unique as if we get into a mixture land of Southeast Asia and India culture.
We treasure a memorable trip around Bagan, Yangon, Naypyidaw, Mandalay, and Mingun. We learned new things, such as Thanaka: a yellow paste cream made by grinding the bark, wood, or the roots of a thanaka tree with a small amount of water on a circular slate slab. It is a distinctive feature of the culture of Myanmar, seen commonly applied to the face and sometimes the arms of women and girls. We also learn a thing or two of their local language. What can we say...Marvelous Myanmar!
