Kalaw Central Market, Myanmar

Kalaw, In The Shan State of Myanmar

We left busy Yangon for the tranquility of this hill town, as we prepared to start a 3-day hike. We arrived at Kalaw after comfortable night bus. I was able to get a good amount of sleep despite frequent stops throughout the night.

Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon

Yangon, And First Impressions of Myanmar

We arrived in Myanmar from Taipei after a layover in the middle of the night in Kuala Lumpur. With only three hours of uncomfortable sleep, I was a bit groggy as I stood in line for immigration.
