After the preparation of a full range of furniture and information for the Myanmar tour this time, the spirit is quite good and extremely eager, because the country is too strange and everything will be more active than the previous.Myanmar currency and purchase the phone SIM. As in the previous post shared, I stroll around the currency exchange here to see which one has a better exchange. [caption id = "attachment_2594" align = "aligncenter" width = "600"] The Remittance counters & the sale of SIM 3g at Yangon Airport, Myanmar. [/caption] Mynamar welcomed with the taxi men dressed in skirts (longyi) and the girls obliterate Thanakha. From here, we catch taxis in downtown Yangon with about 20km away, losing 12,000 kyats. Taxis in Myanmar do not have the clock or they charge hourly, should pay the price based on the trip. Yangon is now in front of his eyes as the old and crowded blocks… These long-tailed cars have gone slowly. He is driving a taxi just to speak English very quickly, only to the famous destinations every time as Gold Pagoda, Lake… [caption id = "attachment_2598" align = "aligncenter" width = "600"] Yangon is a very horrible, car-locked city, so it should be calculated to avoid late flight or bus. [/caption] Because there's only one afternoon here before taking a bus to Bagan at 20h, so I visit the bogyoke market to go for a drink and buy a map. Bogyoke Market is a popular and bustling bazaar in Yangon, which you can get lost by a wide variety of booths and a different corner. The Bogyoke market is famous for its items made from turquoise and gemstone with beautiful designs. On returning to Yangon I came back here to buy jewels for the relatives.

[/caption] [caption id = "attachment_2568" align = "aligncenter" width = "600"] Bogyoke Market in downtown Yangon. Famous for the gemstone and many souvenir gifts. [/caption] In this market, you can choose to dine in the floor on the left side, with a few Thai or Myanmar dishes, then down the back area to drink a tea of Myanmar milk, a special milk tea , there is a pinkish color and a strange taste. [caption id = "attachment_2569" align = "aligncenter" width = "600"] Myanmar milk Tea in a food, bogyoke market. Many tourists choose to buy these milk tea packs on making gifts. [/caption] Here, I bought a longyi for quite a cheap price (about $5), if the female would have more than one ($9). Longyi's slippery cloth or Caro around 2m, which is remade with a simple task is to pinch the head, tie back, put in the back of the skirt… It's simple with indigenous people, but after seven days of Longyi, it's not even familiar with this longyi wear. Longyi has no pockets, so the man wearing longyi often must pimp around a wide variety of maps such as phones, squeeze money, cigarettes… And sometimes you have to pull out the correction, because a little move is longyi loose right away. In addition, he also bought several thanakhas for trial 800kyats. Topical Thanakha must also have art, you draw a little to water, do not be diluted too, then dab up 2 cheeks & forehead… If you want to be beautiful, use the drawings into a sawtooth or a leaf. [caption id = "attachment_2595" align = "aligncenter" width = "450"] Sample of a Burmese-like powder. [/caption] Thanakha is the kind of cosmetic that is honed directly from the trunk, which is later variation into a variety of powders and lotions. Myanmar women dab thanakha daily to nurture the skin under hot weather… And they dab thanakha as being a very normal job similar to the makeup of the women in Vietnam. After the meal is completed, you walk through the Indian church opposite, then walk towards Sule Pagoda… to find the bus to the marina under the guidance of a friend of Myanmar in the market. Along the way, it is possible to pass through a very beautiful bridge, a wide range of colours that are hung up… From here, can also see the crowded and jammed cars of the city of Yangon's melting games.

Partly because it would like to save costs, 1 part would like to try using the local people bus. And this bus catch is quite an arduous, rather crowded by the people of Yangon to use the bus, the race car named in the round of Myanmar's circular inscriptions. And after a lucky thank you for visiting, then the old bus ride online through the bus station. An extremely crowded bus, the old car was as long as from the years 1950, Chen wished, hot for the fare of only about 400kyats (7000 VND) for about 25km. [caption id = "attachment_2575" align = "aligncenter" width = "600"] The local bus in Yangon is an old, hot, but extremely inexpensive bus ride. [/caption] That evening, she began the bus JJ Express moving to Bagan, which made the dock at 20h, the garage is quite clean, you can dine around the bus or wait for a late meal after the car moves about 3 hours. I have a review of the car JJ Express to share some of the cost savings experience, you can read more
