It is located south of Myitkyina, Bhamo lies at the junction of the
Ayeyarwaddy and the Taping River and is about 20 Km from the lower end
of the first of the famous defiles. The way cruise down to Mandalay from
Bhamo, we will see 2nd defile from the boat. Will find very deep forest
in Bamaw. Very famous for hard wood like Teak wood. Would like to
recommend to take the Public boat with cabin and enjoy along the
Ayerwaddy River cruise trip one night/ two days from Bamaw to
Kyaukmyaung or Mandalay. Kyaungmyaung is very famous for Pottery. They
produce big glazed pot especially. Transport to whole Myanmar.
Friendship Hotel is good for Accommodation in Bamaw. Room type building.
Clean and good service.
