Through India Border to Myanmar

After we passed Moray in India, we will reach Tamuu in Myanmar.
Welcomed from Tamuu, which is located in Myanmar. Drive to Kalay about two hours drive from. Sightseeing and overnight in there. And proceed to Kalaywa by car about one hour and take the public boat or charter boat along in Chindwin River to Monywa about five hours. Senery of River cruise is fabulous.

Taung Zalat Hotel is located near the Airport.


Located just beyond Sagaing. It is fascination for the “temple-phile” because of variety of rather unusual pagodas and temples found there. Sunsets over the Chindwin are particularly picturesque. It is ThamBoddhay Temple complex. The pillars are topped by stupas of various sizes. Pillars are filled with Buddha images. Another temple, complex spread out on the Pho-Win Hill on the west bank of Chindwin River. Buddha images are seated in the caves. Can enjoy the wall painting.
And ShwebaTaung (a complex of temple) details in pink sand stone are etched into the entrance of the caves. 
A short walk away from the Hpowintaung caves is the rock temple of ShweBaTaung. Completely different in form, these much larger rock temples are carved deep into the soft rock and then painted a riot of colours. Save three hours to travel to and from Monywa and see the main sights at Hpowintaung & ShweBaTaung.


Entry from Mesai in Thailand to Tachileik in Myanmar (Thai Border)


Surrounded by the jungled mountains, it is a pleasant pastoral scene that leads the visitors to a side track and into the hills; you will enjoy unforgettable picnic lunch on the way up to hills. When we go up to the hill, we will find the huge bamboo trees with holes. People who take the bamboo worms in it they sell the bamboo worm crispy in the market & stalls. Sticky rice, sausage, cracker & spicy sauce.
Ann hill tribe
Since they were young, start the practice chew a kind of bark from jungle like betel quid, which bark leaves mouths black especially black teeth and forever.
At one time Kengtung was a walled city and some of the old gates can still be seen, although now, the town has gowns beyond its previous limits.
