Babe and I are not your conventional traveler.  We do not stay in one place when we travel especially if we are wandering around the Philippines in which most islands are just 1 or 2 boat hours away from one another. In this three day long weekend we decided to visit three islands in three days with a friend and my sister.

There are so many things to do in Myanmar and on top of the list is visiting the various Hindu temples and structures in the country which vary from city to city. You can go to Bagan for old brick massive temples, Mandalay for white stupas, and Yangon for the highly acclaimed ones.

How to go to Gokteik Viaduct

Being overwhelm of the beautiful temples and stupas is normal and not to be ashamed of. Even I was engulfed of the temples in Myanmar. Good thing, my friend decided that we take a break from temple-hopping and get some fresh air 100km away northeast of Mandalay.
