Last stop in Myanmar: Golden Rock

It was a long day traveling. First 10 hour bus ride from Inle Lake to Bago. We arrived in Bago at around 5:30am, checked in to the dirtiest hotel I have seen in awhile for $18 a night, at 7am we took a 2 hour ride taxi to Kinpun (base of the bottom of golden rock), then took a 30-40 min ride in a open truck, we then had to hike up an hour to this rock. Totally not worth going. 

Next day, we go the hell out of there as early as we can. Took the 7am train ride back to Yangon (not much of a better place) so we can fly out of Myanmar the next day. It was an amazing tiring two weeks. I'm glad I get to this country before even more tourist visiting. The language and people are beautiful. I must say the people in this country are the nicest out of all the other countries I have traveled to. 


Rooftop view from our nasty hotel room in Bago. Probably one of the nastiest place I have stayed during this trip. 

Not a bad view though.

Getting on this truck to go to the top to see the Golden Rock. They won't leave until it is fully packed. I mean one single space is left. No a very comfortable ride for 30-40 minutes.
