Sunday in Bago – sights to the East On Sunday I had a slower day, just walking round the sights the other way, before retiring to the Icon shopping centre to cool down for lunch. Every so often, with the first around 6am, a boombox van like this will roll through town, blaring out some tunes. This one, to everyone’s relief, had non-distorted speakers. The reservoir has a few shaded spots, especially in the morning, and is one of the few places to just sit in the town centre. What looks like the main gate to Kambazathadi palace is not well maintained. The actual main gates, a little further East. Entry 10,000 kyats (government run). What looked like parts of pencils, drying in the sun. I am not sure I got that right, but that’s what they looked like. Shwemawdaw Pagoda. This is apparently the go-to sight in Bago. I contented myself with the view from outside. Another view of the Pagoda, giving a better idea of the buzzy scene outside. What looks like a festival procession, coming through town. This may have been because it was Sunday, but I saw something similar from the train the next day. 17.322071 96.466329 Bago, Myanmar (Burma) Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
