Yangon Heritage Trust Walk, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma) – part 2 of 2

I rounded off my “wanderings” around Yangon by visiting the Holy Trinity Church (location: cared.historic.buying). Again, this was a building I visited on my previous trip to Yangon (see Holy Trinity (Cathedral Anglican Church), Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma), but the big difference was this time I could get inside. The interior of Holy Trinity Church is […]

Yangon Heritage Trust Walk, Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma) – part 1 of 2

I had some time to kill in Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma), and so I decided to take a local walking tour organised by the  Yangon Heritage Trust. Having checked things out online I discovered I needed to be at their office for 8 am, hence, I got up early and walked the 2 km from […]

The Mandalay Bike Tour – Grasshopper Tours, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) – part 4 of 4

After the farm we ventured on down dirt tracks into the countryside and the rice fields where we saw both traditional, and ‘Chinese Water Buffalo” (see photo below) at work. The rice fields were amazing. They were quiet (apart from the noise of the engine of the Chinese Water Buffalo), and oddly there didn’t seem to […]

The Mandalay Bike Tour – Grasshopper Tours, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) – part 3 of 4

One of the highlights of the Mandalay Bike Tour was visiting a farm. Getting out of Mandalay by bike was relatively quick and painless. It was quick as we didn’t have to go too far to leave the city behind and it was painless as there were no hills.  Actually, there was some pain as even […]

The Mandalay Bike Tour – Grasshopper Tours, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) – part 2 of 4

The next stop on the Grasshopper Mandalay Bike Tour was a nearby village (immune.soaks.optimists) which was a short ride from the ‘words biggest book’. In the village, we stopped for a drink, and a snack (included in the price of the tour), and for a little look round. The first thing that caught my eye […]

After the excesses of the Grasshopper Breakfast Tour, I decided that I needed to get some exercise so I signed up for their local Mandalay Bike Tour, which meant this time I would be pedalling myself. The Mandalay Bike Tour lasted for just over 4 hours and took me out of Mandalay to visit some […]

The Breakfast Tour – Grasshopper Tours, Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma)

I decided to do the breakfast tour of Mandalay with Grasshopper Tours – map – neckline.marbles.elevates, and I wasn’t disappointed. A great tour! Loved it, and excellent value at $35 US. For the breakfast tour, I was taken around Mandalay by trishaw and had my own local guide. And, if I have one piece of advice […]
