Mawlamyine, Myanmar

We continued south to Mawlamyine.

Smallest Room Ever!

We spent one night in this tiny room, a mezzanine level hung out over the reception area. Barely enough room to close the door if we were both standing.

Monk Trying for Glimpse of Kickboxing

We visited a Buddhist site hosting a large festival. We walked inside the reclining Buddha but missed out on the kickboxing as we were so hot and tired by then.

Bilu Kyun

Horse Cart on Bilu Kyun

We took a day trip to an island, Bilu Kyun, where we traveled by horse cart and bus.
