Myanmar is full of smiles like no other country.

Though living in poor conditions, people seemed to be happy, enjoying every minute of their life. They were excited to be photographed and see their pictures, which would make them blush and giggle.

My friend and I started to travel from Yangon, then took a 22 hours ride on boat in the river to reach Ngwe Saugn beach. After that we moved to Inle lake, which was the most interesting place while visiting Myanmar, as the life there takes place on the water. Small houses are wading in the lake, big gardens are floating around and small channels are full of boats, as this is the only way to move around.

After Inle Lake, we cycled around thousands of pagodas in Bagan, went to the cinema in Mandaley and got back to Yangon.

The entire trip took us about three weeks this May and June. All of that time was full of nice experiences and made us want to come back explore Myanmar once again.
