Kyaik Mhaw Won Yele Pagoda, Kyauk Tan #2

It was a cloudy day and I thought I was going to rain but it didn't . After feeding the fish, I spent about 30 minutes by taking photos around the pagoda. There was only one fish food vendor at the pagoda. Some pilgrimages bring their own meal boxes and having gathering lunch.

This pagoda looks very shiny and new. I think it was recently painted. The gold color is really impressive.

Around Than Lyin Township, Yangon

After having breakfast, I hired a taxi to visit Than Lyin Kyaut Tan Pagoda. Besides Than Lyin Kyaut Tan Pagoda, I also asked the driver to stop at all the attractions within the area. 

This way my first stop. I cannot remember the name of this pagoda. Can anyone tell me the name please? This pagoda is near Government Technical College, Yangon.

Seinn Lann So Pyay Garden, Yangon

You need to pay admission fee for the garden. What can you except to see inside? I think it is only good place for photo shooting (model) and dating (for couples).

Having lunch at Inn Yar Lake, Yangon

This place used to be university canteen. Even though the university moved to outskirt of Yangon, this canteen have still remained. The food here is just average and it is also not cheap.

I had one Tofu Nway with assorted fried. I had never have Tofu Nway for about 1 year and this was my first Tofu Nway in this trip but the taste was not so good. Something went wrong with their recipe I guess. Never mind, I would eat more when I arrive Mandalay.

Shwe Dagon Pagoda & Karawait

I want to catch the early sunset on that day. But when I was there it was completely dark. These photo were taken from Kandawgyi Garden (admission fee apply). Too bad I forgot to bring tripod on that day, so I put my camera on the lake barrier. Unfortunately, the barrier was not stable as a few kids were jumping around me.

Yangon Port at Sunset

Bo Ta Htaung Pagoda can be seen from Yangon Port.

By walking a few minutes from Bo Ta Htaung Pagoda  you will see the Yangon port. I was there in late afternoon and had a chance to enjoy the beautiful sunset. The port is always busy with people who come  to visit Yangon from nearby towns by ferry.

Bo Ta Htaung Pagoda,Yangon

Yangon is not my home town. There are a lot places in Yangon which I have never been before, Bo Ta Htaung Pagoda is one of them. This pagoda is located on Bo Ta Htaung Paya road and very near to the Yangon Port where cargo containers and ships are lining up. Also, a lot of British colony buildings can be found in this area such as Custom house, Strand Hotel, Post office etc.
