Feel like a monk hidden in the mountains
A bit mysterious
A bit sacred
She has the richest travel elements
Monuments, mountains, rivers, lakes, rice fields,
City-state, forest, stupa, temple, primeval forest
She mixes the interlaced beauty of tradition and modernity
The fusion of East and West
Reveal the worldly vigor
The millennial heritage
Most people here are not rich
But nature is forbearing, optimistic, contented
Living in the practice of the present life and the infinite vision of the afterlife
If you walk in here you will be surprised
Have gone through countless chaos and vicissitudes
But it still maintains enthusiasm and sincerity
When you feel tired
Come here for a walk
Change a life
You may find another kind of romance

Burmese people like “dry” noodle snacks-essentially, salads made with noodles and served with broth-and one of the most delicious and common is nangyi thoke.
